DETROIT (AP) -- Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling 58,833 older cars and SUVs with manual transmissions.

The recall covers 2006 Jeep Liberty and Wrangler SUVs and Dodge Viper cars produced between Feb. 15, 2005, and Sept. 14, 2006. Of those, 43,874 were sold in the U.S. The rest were sold in Canada, Mexico and overseas.

FCA says a switch wire can break and cause the vehicles not to start. The vehicles may also move unintentionally if drivers don't follow the company's recommended procedures for starting the car. Drivers are supposed to engage the parking brake, shift to neutral and depress the clutch before turning the key.

The company says it is unaware of any injuries or accidents related to the defect.

Customers will be notified and dealers will repair the vehicles for free.
