(AP) Honda is telling owners of more than 686,000 Fit and Jazz subcompacts worldwide to park them outside because the power window switches can catch fire.


The company is recalling cars from the 2007 and 2008 model years. It's urging owners not to park them in garages until driver's side door switches can be inspected.


Honda says water can get inside the door through an open window. It can damage the switch, causing it to overheat and potentially cause a fire.


The company says the problem hasn't resulted in any injuries.


The recall covers more than 143,000 Fits in the U.S. and about 35,000 in Canada.


Honda recalled the same cars two years ago, but the repairs didn't work well enough.


Honda will replace the switches free of charge.
