General Motors is issuing a recall on 193,652 SUVs for a possible short in a circuit board that could potentially cause a fire.

The affected vehicles are all from the 2006 and 2007 model years and include the Chevrolet Trailblazer (EXT included), GMC Envoy (XL included), Buick Rainier, Saab 9-7x, and the Isuzu Ascender. The issue centers around a circuit board located in the driver’s door that could corrode from water getting into the driver’s side door. If the board shorts out, the power door and window switches may stop working according to the American automaker. Even worse, the circuit board can overheat, leading to smoke or fire.

General Motors is advising owners of the affected vehicles to park them outside until they can be repaired. The automaker will be notifying affected owners and dealerships will repair the vehicles for free.
