(AP) Chrysler is recalling 282,000 minivans from the 2013 model year because the side air bags can deploy on the wrong side in a crash.


Side air bags are supposed to deploy on the side of the vehicle that's involved in a crash. Chrysler says a software problem is causing its air bags to deploy on the opposing side of the vehicle.


Affected models are the Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Town and Country and Ram Cargo Van. The campaign involves 224,000 vehicles in the U.S.; 49,300 in Canada; 2,900 in Mexico and 5,300 elsewhere.


Chrysler says it began investigating the issue after a customer complaint. The company says there has been one minor injury related to the defect.


Chrysler will notify affected customers. Dealers will reprogram the software for free.
