AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Chrysler is recalling an estimated 89 2015 Chrysler 200 sedans in North America because of a wiring harness problem that may lead to a fire risk, the automaker said.

The recall is limited to certain Touring models of the 2015 Chrysler 200. Eight vehicles are in the U.S. and the remaining vehicles are in Canada.

Chrysler said the wiring harnesses in the affected vehicles may not meet specifications.

"The action follows an investigation that discovered some vehicles built during a five-week production window were equipped with wiring harnesses that may not accommodate certain electrical loads, as intended," the automaker said in a statement on Friday. "As a result, they may overheat."

The overheating could lead to a risk of fire, a Chrysler spokesman told Edmunds in response to a query.

There have been no reported fires.

Chrysler dealers will replace the wiring harnesses. A date has not been set for the recall, but Chrysler said it will begin "very soon." Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.

Edmunds says: Since this recall begins shortly, it's best to begin the conversation with your dealer if you own one of these 2015 Chrysler 200s.
