WASHINGTON Chrysler Group is recalling 313,236 2011-'13 Jeep Wrangler SUVs because a problem with the heated power mirrors can increase the risk of a fire, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

"Corrosion in the exterior heated power mirror electrical connector may result in an electrical short," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "An electrical short increases the risk of a fire."

"There are no injuries or accidents that we are aware of, including fire," said Eric Mayne, a Chrysler spokesman, in a phone conversation with Edmunds on Thursday.

The affected vehicles were built from February 16, 2010 to July 19, 2013.

Jeep dealers will move the exterior mirror power feed to a separate connector. The recall is expected to begin on December 5. Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Edmunds says: Owners will have to wait for their official recall notices before taking action. But if you are experiencing a problem with your vehicle in the meantime, it's best to contact your dealer.
