Chrysler is recalling more than 367,000 minivans to fix a potential water leak in the vehicles' air conditioning systems that may cause accidental air bag deployments.

Chrysler said the recall includes 2008 Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans.

The vehicles may have water leaks from the heating and air conditioning drain grommet, which could lead to the illumination of the air bag warning light and a potential inadvertent deployment of the air bag, Chrysler said.

An accidental air bag deployment could result in injury to the passenger in front of the deploying air bag, or even lead to a car crash, the federal government said. Dealers will replace the drain grommet free of charge.
