More than 500,000 Hyundai and Kia cars and minivans have been recalled in the U.S. for backward turn signals.

According to the Associated Press, the recalled vehicles are 2015-17 Hyundai Sonata's, 2016-17 Sonata gas-electric hybrids, and 2015-17 Kia Sedona minivans.

The AP reported that the automakers said the turn signal could be backward due to software in a junction box not correctly interpreting the signals sent from a multi-function switch.

According to the AP, no injuries or crashes have been reported.

Owners with the affected vehicles are asked to go to their nearest dealer and get it fixed, which is free.

The AP reported that Hyundai should notify owners in a letter starting Nov. 19 and Kia owners beginning Nov. 12.
