Daimler-Chrysler is recalling its 2005 Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country minivans. The company says it needs to fix faulty air bags that may not deploy because of corrosion on the sensors.

The automaker says the recall involves more than 400-thousand vehicles sold or registered in states that use large amounts of road salt. Utah is one of the states.

Daimler-Chrysler's Chrysler Group says in a letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that brass brushings on the sensors could corrode and crack on the front air bags, allowing water to enter the sensor.

States covered by the recall include: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Kentucky, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Nebraska, Kansas and Alaska.
