Nissan is recalling almost 240,000 vehicles worldwide due to an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) fluid leak that could lead to a fire.

The vehicles affected from this recall are the 2016-2017 Nissan Maxima, 2015-2017 Nissan Murano and the 2015-2016 Nissan Murano Hybrid.

Nissan and its luxury brand, Infiniti, are recalling 215,124 vehicles to potentially replace a brake component that could cause a fire if brake fluid leaks onto a circuit board.

Drivers are instructed to immediately stop driving their vehicles if the ABS lamp warning illuminates continually for more than 10 seconds after the engine starts.

In a statement at Downing Street she said it was unacceptable for either side in the discussions to make threats. That is a reference to what European leaders cast as British attempts to cherry-pick elements of EU membership.

A spokesperson told Global News there were 19,761 affected vehicles in Canada. The 2016 Murano was recalled previously for a similar issue.

Documents posted Thursday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration don't say if there have been any fires. He said there have been no related crashes or injuries.

Owners of this make and model are advised to keep their cars parked outside until their vehicle can be inspected by a Nissan dealership.

Dealers will inspect the pump serial numbers and replace them if necessary starting October 15.
