"CAUSE
The plug-in contact of the positive battery cable at the front power distribution box may be damaged by vehicle vibrations, which causes corrosion and high resistance leading to high current loads. "

As a senior electrical engineer I had to LOL at "high resistance leading to high current loads." Uh..NO. I think what was meant to be said was "high resistance leading to localized heating due to high current loads."
