Problem • A short circuit can develop when either the puddle light on the door bottom or the connector are exposed to an electrolytic moisture source (such as road spray that has road salt in it) and it penetrates the circuit board. Over time, this may generate heat that could melt the plastic, resulting in smoke or fire.
