A/C drain hoses blocked from spider webs, Toyota will correct it.. Spiders building webs in evaporator drain hose blocking it. The water has no place to go but to drip into the airbag control module — and that causes a short circuit, CNN reported. Drivers would see the airbag warning light up, and in worst-case scenarios, the bag might actually deploy. The mischief-making spiders could also lead to a loss of power-steering, Toyota said, in the report. The company reported three cases of undue airbag deployment and 35 instances of warning lights coming on in error, CNN reported. And the common denominator among the vehicles: The presence of spider webs.
