Honda is recalling 344,000 Odyssey minivans of the 2007-2008 model years to fix a problem that can cause the vehicle to brake suddenly.

The Japanese automaker said Friday that a software and parts problem can cause hydraulic pressure to build in the braking system after an engine restart. The buildup can suddenly be released, causing heavy and unexpected braking without the brake lamps coming on. Honda said it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to the problem.

Honda says it will replace a "yaw sensor" but the part won't be available until early next year.

In the meantime, it issued instructions online on how to drive to prevent the problem from occurring.
