DaimlerChrysler Announces Minivan Recall
    AUBURN HILLS, Mich., May 28 -- DaimlerChrysler
today announced the voluntary recall of 996,939 minivans, model years 1994-95,
to perform an air bag system diagnostic check for wiring shorts.
    The recall action affects the Dodge Caravan, Plymouth Voyager and Chrysler
Town & Country vehicles.
    The recall was prompted by about 35 field reports of inadvertent
deployment of driver's-side air bags caused by a short in the wiring harness.
Most of the deployments occurred when the vehicle was started.  There have
been no reports of serious injury or death.
    This action is unrelated to recent reports that the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration is studying test data to determine if passenger-
side air bags in Chrysler minivans pose a risk of injury to small adults.
    Owners of the vehicles are expected to be notified in about a month.  Any
shorts identified during the diagnostic check will be repaired.
