Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has planned recalls for 1.9 million Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Lancia vehicles to replace defective parts that could prevent the airbags and the seat-belt tensioners from activating in a crash.

FCA says the defect involves an occupant-restraint control module and front-impact sensor wiring used on some 2010-2014 model vehicles, a design since abandoned by the company. Three deaths and five injuries have been linked to this particular defect.

Of the 1.9 million vehicles recalled, about 1.4 million vehicles sold in the U.S. are affected, along with 143,000 in Canada, 82,000 in Mexico and 284,000 outside of North America. The impacted vehicles are as follows:

FCA is still in the process of issuing the recall. Owners of affected cars who have questions can call the company at 1-800-853-1403.

The FCA recall is the latest in a series of high-profile recalls that involve passive restraint systems, particularly airbags. Last week, General Motors recalled over 3.6 million vehicles for a similar issue involving a defect in the sensor that signals the airbags and seat-belt tensioners to deploy. Meanwhile, the Takata airbag recall, which started in 2013 and continues to persist, involves defects in the airbag mechanism itself, and has affected tens of millions of vehicles.
