DETROIT—Fiat Chrysler (FCA) is recalling nearly 50,000 small SUVs worldwide because the engines could stall while being driven.

Transport Canada says the recall affects about 3,400 Dodge Journey, Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot vehicles in Canada.

The company says a sensor connector in the engine can malfunction. That can cause the SUVs to either stall or fail to start.

Fiat Chrysler says it doesn’t know of any crashes or injuries due to the problem.

Most of the recalled vehicles are in the U.S., and all were built during an 11-week period last spring.

Dealers will replace the sensor connector for the crankshaft and camshaft. Owners will be notified about when to bring vehicles in for repairs. Owners with questions can call FCA at (800) 853-1403.
