Nissan is recalling over 120,000 cars and SUVs in the U.S. because brake fluid could leak and cause fires.

The company says that in some cases, owners should park their vehicles outside until they are repaired.

The recall covers certain 2015 to 2017 Murano SUVs and 2016 to 2017 Maxima large cars that are equipped with intelligent cruise control. Also included are some 2015 and 2016 Murano hybrids.

Nissan says in documents posted Friday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that seals on antilock brake pumps can leak fluid onto a circuit board.

That can cause an electrical short, which could lead to a fire. If fluid leaks, the antilock brake warning light could stay on for more than 10 seconds after the vehicles are started.

Owners who see that warning should park outside and away from structures and not drive their vehicles until they are repaired.
