Chrysler has announced a recall of its Sebring and Dodge Avenger sedans.

The recall affects 212,347 cars outfitted with tire pressure monitors. All are 2007 and 2008 models, the Associated Press reports.

The recall, posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on its Web site, says that the vehicles involved could have faulty electrical connectors in the tire-pressure system. Corrosion could lead to a short circuit, which in turn could cause battery problems, difficulty in starting the engine, and stalling.

Chrysler says they've received nine reports of stalling, but none of accidents or injuries.

Most of the recalled vehicles were sold in the U.S. Starting in mid-April, Chrysler will re-seal the monitors or replace them free of charge.
