2003 Honda - Can a system computer failure cause a coil pack to melt?

(2003 Honda Accord)
in Albuquerque, NM on August 22, 2010
The malfunction indicator lamp and the immobilizer system indicator light came on, on my 2003 Honda and immediately the car started running poorly. I drove it home and the next day took it straight to the dealer. The dealer performed a diagnostic because the problem was not obvious. The codes were always pointing to a problem with the transmition but the mechanic didn't think it was the transmition. They finally found that the coil pack melted in the head. After the car was repaired I was told that the computer system failed and had to be replaced. Can a system computer failure cause the coil pack to fail?

Yes, if it shorts the coil to the point where it melts.
