GMGeneral Motors said it would recall 370,000 2014 Silverados and GMC Sierras due to a fire risk that involves a software problem.

The company said the trucks were expected to idle with only two cylinders of the engine running. But a software problem causes more than two cylinders to continue running, the Detroit News reported Saturday.

GM said that owners should not leave their vehicles at idle while unattended, the News said.

To date, all the vehicles in which fires have been reported were equipped with V-8 engines, GM said.

The company said it would reprogram the software that has lead to the problem. It said it would send letters to vehicle owners, who can contact dealers Monday for an appointment, which should take 20 minutes.
