Updated on

Toyota Motor Corp. is working to repair a software problem that can disable navigation systems in its Lexus vehicles and that may require a return trip to dealerships to complete repairs.

Moe Durand, a spokesman for the Lexus luxury division, said the problem may have been caused by a faulty application in the kind of software the automaker routinely ships to customers’ vehicles via satellite. Durand said the company hasn’t determined yet whether vehicles will have to return to dealerships to fix the app.
