Honda is recalling about 2.1 million Accord cars worldwide, including 1.15 million in the United States, because the battery sensors can potentially short out and cause a fire. The recall covers vehicles from the 2013-16 model years with 12-volt battery sensors.

The sensors may not seal against moisture, which in time can let in salt from roads and lead to “corrosion and eventual electrical shorting of the sensor,” Honda said in a statement Thursday.

That can lead to smoke under the hood and, in worst cases, fires, it said. The Japanese automaker has received four reports of engine fires.
