Chrysler reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that there could be an electronics problem with the stability control and anti-lock brake systems in the vehicles.

The problem stems from an overheating fuse in power distribution that will cause the systems to fail and possibly cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

As of yet there had been no reports of accidents or injuries caused by the problem.

Chrysler is expected to start sending out notices to customers who have bought one of the vehicles, later this month, and will make the repairs needed free of charge.

The problem was discovered in the testing of a new police vehicle, after it was discovered, Chrysler checked to see if the same issue was occurring with consumer vehicles.

Of the 127,350 cars, an estimated 119,072 cars are in the United States and 8,274 in Canada.

Chrysler also reported that the part which is overheating is produced by Global Automotive Systems, which is a part of the Dura Automotive Systems based in Rochester Hills, Michigan.
