Toyota has said it will halt six production lines at five of its plants in Japan, Reuters reports.

The automaker attributed the pause to a parts shortage, and said it would decide if it would resume production at the end of the week.

No further details were given on which plants are affected or what parts are involved.

In January the automaker shut down two of its Japan production lines over its Daihatsu emissions test scandal.

Last year it was also hit by a system failure caused by a parts ordering system update that forced the shut down of 14 of its plants in Japan.
