DETROIT -- Toyota (TM) is recalling 112,500 cars and SUVs to fix problems with electric power steering controls and electric vehicle software.

The largest of two recalls announced Wednesday covers about 110,000 2015 Camry midsize sedans and Highlander SUVs, as well as 2014 and 2015 RAV4 SUVs.

Toyota says a circuit board in the electric power steering may have been damaged at the factory. Power-assisted steering could fail, increasing the effort needed to steer and raising the risk of a crash.

Dealers will inspect and replace power steering controls if needed.

The other recall covers 2,500 RAV4 electric vehicles from 2012 through 2014. Software in a motor assembly can make the vehicles shift into neutral on their own. Dealers will fix the motor assembly.

Toyota says it knows of no crashes or injuries in either case.
