Chrysler says a problem fuel pump is causing 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos to stall.

Chrysler is recalling more than 230,000 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees worldwide due to a faulty fuel pump that could cause engines to stall.

The problem, which Chrysler said affects 2011 vehicles, could also prevent them from starting. It stems from electronic circuitry that also helps to control the cars' airbags and other functions. Those features weren't affected, the automaker said Friday.

Chrysler said the problem, which showed up as a pattern in repairs, hasn't caused any known injuries or deaths so far.
