The way to correct this problem is possibly to replace your spark plugs with resistors. This is a quote from Toyota's website directly : Non-genuine sparks plugs without resistors fail to reduce interference with electronics.

It does not matter what type of vehicle you have as long as the spark plugs have resistors

Today's spark plugs use resistors to eliminate radio frequency interference (RFI) which can affect on-board computer or ignition systems, AM and FM radio reception, and TV broadcasts. Each time the spark jumps across a gap, an electromagnetic field is created that can interfere with radio signals. By placing a resistor in the spark plug, we can substantially reduce RFI. Furthermore, the use of non-resistor plugs with today's complex computer systems can result in drivability problems, loss of performance and can even cause the computer to store trouble codes.

Good luck and let me know if this works
