DETROIT— Fiat Chrysler Automobiles FCAU -1.98% NV said Friday it is recalling more than five million vehicles in the U.S. and Canada to fix a programming flaw that could prevent drivers from canceling the cruise control to slow their cars, in an example of glitch-prone software taking over a critical safety function. The auto maker said drivers could lose control of vehicle speed “in an unlikely series of events” involving a short circuit in an electrical network. In such a case, the vehicle would maintain a set speed even if the brakes are tapped or a driver attempts to turn off the cruise control function.
