(Detroit, MI) -- General Motors is recalling more than 40-thousand Chevrolet medium-duty trucks due to a problem with the break-pressure sensor that raises the risk of fire.

Federal regulators say a faulty assembly could leak brake fluid and cause an electrical short circuit.

The recall covers Chevrolet 4500HD, 5500HD and 6500 model trucks from 2019 to 2023.

GM is advising owners to park their trucks outside until dealers have the parts to fix them free of charge.

The auto giant has said it's not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.
