Engineering investigations have identified that vehicles operated in countries which have high road salt usage during winter months may experience an increased risk of corrosion build up. In extreme cases the corrosion can propagate into the electronic circuits and result in overheating. In rare cases the overheating may be sufficient to ignite the module and surrounding wiring and components.
