Toyota is recalling 41,544 Venza Hybrid 2021 models over concerns that a short circuit in the vehicle’s electrical system could lead to dim or nonfunctional rear turn signals and, consequently, hazard lights.

The issue specifically involves potential water ingress to the rear LED turn signal control circuit board, which can lead to condensation, which could, in turn, cause a short circuit. The fix for this involves replacing the turn signal LED bulbs and, where necessary, the entire rear light assembly.
