...in the spiral cable assembly, the connectivity to the driver's airbag module could be affected," Al-Futtaim was quoted as saying in a statement. "If connectivity is lost, the air bag warning lamp will illuminate. In addition, the driver's air bag could become deactivated, causing it to not deploy in the event of an accident. "Al-Futtaim Motors will begin contacting all customers with affected vehicles to replace the spiral cable," the statement added. The recall could extend to more than 233,000 vehicles sold in the region and 3.5 million units globally, said the report. Al Futtaim also confirmed that 39,000 Yaris vehicles, built between 2005 and 2010, will have to be checked for a 'seat track' special service campaign, while another 2,377 models, made between 2005 and 2009, will come under the special service check for a possible ‘instrument panel reinforcement assembly’ defect, it said. "In the affected vehicles, the spring used for the mechanism that locks the driver's seat rail in its adjusting positions could break if the seat is adjusted with high frequency," Al Futtaim was quoted as saying. "If this occurs, the seat may not be fully locked in position. In limited instances, the broken spring could become stuck in the seat rail, and the seat might appear to be locked in position," it added."
...service campaign on 372 Toyota Avalon 2003- 2004 models in the UAE," Jon Williams, managing director of Al-Futtaim Motors was quoted as saying. "The airbag control module for the supplemental restraint system (SRS) in these vehicles could have been manufactured with application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). When exposed to high inductive electrical noise from various vehicle electrical components, these ASICs could experience an internal short that creates abnormal current flow and increased heat,” he said. "If this occurs, there is a possibility that the ASIC could become damaged. In some instances, the front airbag(s) and/or seat belt pretensions could inadvertently deploy. To fix this, a sub-wire harness (filter) will be installed to minimise electrical noise from the other electrical components,” said Williams. In addition, 418 Toyota Land Cruiser 70 pick-up, 2012 to 2014 models, will also be recalled, said the report."
Addressing panelists and guests at the conference, Shantanu A P , CEO of SPI Group said: "It gives me immense pleasure to welcome exhibitors, panelists and visitors to SME World 2014, a grand celebration of entrepreneurship where we aim to enable global ambitions. I am pleased to note that we have over 3,000 visitors today and a full complement of global and regional panelists. I thank SME ecosystem of the UAE and the participants at the conference that are helping to provide entrepreneurs a platform to showcase their work and to achieve visibility and recognition."
Shantanu A P , CEO of SPI Group said: "We have designed SME World 2014 such that it acts as a driver of economic development and takes successful SMEs to the next level. As it connects various players of the SME ecosystem including investors, service providers, enablers and partners, the conference has the potential to be the platform for the transition of SMEs to larger businesses. Over the coming years, it will be known as the essential stop in the journey of regional entrepreneurship from the SME to the IPO."
