LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — General Motors has recalled more than 200,000 SUVs due to fire risk.

The recall was issued on June 14 for the Buick Rainier, Chevy Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and the SAAB 9-7x.

“Fluid may enter the driver’s door module, causing corrosion that could result in a short in the circuit board. A short may cause the power door lock and power window switches to function intermittently or become inoperative,” the U.S. Department of Transportation said. “The short may also cause overheating, which could melt components of the door module, producing odor, smoke, or a fire.”

Officials said a fire could occur even when the vehicle was not in use. As a precaution, owners should park their vehicle outside until the repair has been made.

GM will notify all owners of the recalled SUVs.

Buick owners may contact the owner center at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet owners at 1-866-694-6546, GMC owners at 1-866-996-9463, Isuzu owners at 1-800-255-6727, and SAAB owners at 1-855-880-0808.
