(CNN) - Some Fiat Chrysler owners need to have their vehicles checked for a mechanical malfunction.

The automaker is recalling roughly 300,000 of its 2011 and 2012 Dodge Grand Caravans.

Officials say wiring problems within the steering wheel can cause driver-side airbags to inadvertently deploy.

More than a dozen such incidents have been reported, causing some minor injuries.

Owners of affected vehicles will not have to pay for repair work.
