DETROIT (AP) β€” Fiat Chrysler is recalling nearly 410,000 vehicles worldwide because a wiring problem can cause them to move slowly.

The company said Friday that the recall covers some Jeep Renegade and Cherokee SUVs, Chrysler 200 sedans and Ram ProMaster City vans from the 2015 model year. Also included are certain 2014 Cherokees. Vehicles built after Sept. 23, 2014 aren't affected.

FCA began investigating after getting warranty claims and found wires that weren't crimped properly. That can lead to a rare solenoid problem that can cause the engines to go into a limited power mode so they can limp home.

Fiat Chrysler says it doesn't know of any related crashes or injuries.

Dealers will update software and replace wiring as needed. Owners will be told when to schedule service.
