WASHINGTON American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 24,889 2014 Honda Odyssey minivans because the side curtain airbag on the passenger?s side of the vehicle may not deploy, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

?The shorting terminal, an electrical connector used to prevent airbag deployment before being installed into a vehicle, may have been damaged during assembly of the passenger side-curtain airbag,? said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. ?If the shorting terminal is damaged, the passenger side-curtain airbag may fail to deploy, thereby increasing the risk of occupant injury in a crash.?

No crashes or injuries have been reported related to the recall, the company said in a statement on its Web site.

The affected minivans were built from October 2, 2013 through December 16, 2013.

Honda dealers will replace the damaged shorting pin with a new shorting coupler. The recall is expected to begin on May 16. Owners can contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

Edmunds says: Honda is telling owners of the 2014 Odyssey to make an appointment with their dealer as soon as they receive their recall notification.
