DETROIT, MI (AP) - Chrysler is recalling more than 49,000 Dodge Charger muscle cars because a connector can overheat and knock out low-beam headlights.

The recall affects 2011 and 2012 Chargers equipped with halogen headlamps. Dealers will inspect and replace for free the headlight wiring, bulbs and assemblies if necessary.

Canadian safety regulators say the problem could compromise driver visibility and lead to a crash. But Chrysler says it knows of no crashes or injuries. The problem is similar to one that led to a 2012 recall of Charger police cars.

The new recall covers 43,450 Chargers in the U.S., 2,850 in Canada, 375 in Mexico and 2,700 outside North America. Customers with concerns can call Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
