WASHINGTON (AP) -- General Motors is recalling about 1.5 million vehicles worldwide to address a problem with a heated windshield wiper fluid system that could lead to a fire.

The recall affects several pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles and passenger car models from the 2006 to 2009 model years. GM conducted a similar recall in 2008 but came across new reports of fires in vehicles that had been fixed.

GM plans to disable the heated washer fluid system module that could lead to fires. GM will pay owners and those leasing vehicles $100 since the feature is being disabled.

GM says there are no known injuries or crashes reported. GM is aware of five fires.

Nearly 1.4 million vehicles are in the U.S. More than 100,000 vehicles are in Canada, Mexico and elsewhere.
