FCA US is recalling an estimated 352,831 2011-2012 model-year Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs because a previous safety recall remedy may have left the vanity mirror wiring in these vehicles susceptible to a short-circuit that poses a fire risk.

The automaker said overheating conditions were reported in just a small percentage of vehicles serviced in connection with the earlier recall. FCA US added it isn’t aware of any related injuries or accidents.

The new recall covers Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durango SUVs produced before Sept. 2, 2012. To fix the wiring issue, dealers will secure the headliners of the vehicles with a new adhesive.

“Measures will also be taken to help prevent the wiring from contacting potentially abrasive surfaces,” FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) US said. The repairs will be performed free of charge.

In addition to the vehicles in the U.S., the recall covers 26,487 SUVs in Canada, 13,037 in Mexico, and 84,330 outside the NAFTA region, the company said.

Vehicle owners can reach the FCA US customer assistance center at (800) 853-1403.
