Nissan is recalling nearly 34,000 Sentra compact cars because of a battery cable problem that could cause the engines to stall.

Documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say that a zinc coating on the cable bolts could be too thick. That can cause a voltage drop that can damage the engine control computer. The documents say the cars can stall while moving and it may not be possible to restart them, increasing the risk of a crash.

The problem affects some 2010 and 2011 Sentras equipped with MR-20 engines.
Nissan says it will replace the positive battery cables free of
charge.

Nissan also is recalling more than 28,000 Juke small crossover SUVs from the 2011 model year. A turbocharger bracket problem can
cause engine stalling.
