More than 210,000 Chryslers are being recalled because of an electrical problem that may cause the engine to stall or other problems.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said only the 2007-2008 Sebring and Dodge Avenger models with standard tire pressure monitoring systems are involved.

NHTSA said unused electrical connectors for the monitoring system could get corroded and short circuit that could lead to several problems including starting the engine, a dead battery, inoperative cruise control or engine stalling.

A Chrysler spokesman says no accidents or injuries have been reported.

Dealers will seal the wires for the tire pressure monitoring system at no cost to customers.

Owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
