BOSTON (CBS) — Chrysler is recalling half a million of their vehicles because of issues with the active head-restraint function.

The problem is reportedly related to a potentially faulty micro-controller that entered the supply chain after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Approximately 422,000 vehicles sold in the United States were affected by the recall.

The vehicles included in the recall are listed below.
– 2011 to 2013 Chrysler Sebring
– 2011 to 2013 Chrysler 200
– 2011 to 2013 Dodge Avenger
– 2011 to 2012 Dodge Nitro
– 2011 to 2013 Jeep Liberty

An additional 224,000 2013 minivans will be recalled in the U.S. because a side air bag software component was not programmed properly.

The vehicles included in the recall are listed below.
– 2013 Dodge Caravan
– 2013 Chrysler Town & Country
– 2013 Ram Cargo Van
