DETROIT — Toyota is recalling about 320,000 trucks and SUVs because the roof-mounted air bags can inflate without a crash.

The recall covers the 2005 and 2006 Toyota Tundra and Sequoia, the 2003 through 2006 Land Cruiser, and the 2004 through 2006 4-Runner. Also included are the 2003 through 2006 Lexus LX 470 and the 2004 through 2006 GX 470.

The company says improper programming in the air bag control computer caused the problem, which could increase the risk of driver and passenger injuries. Toyota says it's not aware of any crashes caused by the problem, but it has received reports of injuries such as scrapes and ringing in the ears.

Owners will be notified of the recall by mail in early February. Dealers will replace the air bag control computer at no cost to owners.
