2014 Jeep Cherokees are seen on a sales lot on April 2, 2014 in Miami, Florida. Chrysler Group LLC announced it is recalling 867,795 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango sport-utility vehicles to install a shield to protect brake boosters from water corrosion.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Chrysler is recalling more than 230,000 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees worldwide due to a faulty fuel pump that could cause engines to stall.

The problem, which Chrysler said affects 2011 vehicles, could also prevent them from starting. It stems from electronic circuitry that also helps to control the cars’ airbags and other functions. Those features weren’t affected, the automaker said Friday.

Chrysler said the problem, which showed up as a pattern in repairs, hasn’t caused any known injuries or deaths so far.

Chrysler says it will advise customers about when they can schedule service. The automaker is footing the bill to fix the 189,000 affected SUVs in the U.S. 16,000 in Canada, 7,000 in Mexico and 19,000 elsewhere.
