Chrysler LLC is recalling 212,347 Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Avenger passenger cars worldwide to fix an electrical problem that could lead to engine stalling and other issues. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a posting on its Web site the recall involves 2007-2008 Sebring and Avenger vehicles with standard tire pressure monitoring systems. According to NHTSA, unused electrical connectors for the monitoring system could become corroded and short circuit, leading to problems starting the engine, a dead battery, an inoperative cruise control or engine stalling. A Chrysler spokesman said while there have been no accidents or injuries reported, Chrysler has received nine reports of engine stalling. About 180,000 of the recalled vehicles are in the United States. Nearly 15,000 are in Canada, more than 12,000 are in Mexico and the rest are in European markets. The recall is expected to begin in mid-April. Dealers will seal the wires for the tire pressure monitoring system at no cost to consumers. Owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
