Not everybody likes vehicle airbags, but they have been credited with saving thousands of lives. But what if your airbag goes off when you’re just driving along, minding your own business?

That’s the problem Fiat Chrysler is dealing with, according to a company statement. And that’s why they’re recalling nearly 300,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada.

A glitch in the steering wheel wiring on 2011 and 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans can cause the driver-side front airbag to deploy on its own. This problem has been linked to at least eight injuries.

Fiat Chrysler voluntarily issued the recall so they can get Caravan owners to bring their vehicles into dealer repair shops to fix the problem. Owners will be provided with information for a free, scheduled service.
