Fight Electrical Connector Corrosion

Electrical connectors in automobiles live in a very bad environment. Over time they are subjected to extremes in temperature, humidity and vibration. Eventually the metal surfaces in the connectors oxidize and cause a long list problems from dim bulbs to total failure. To prevent this, coat the connectors—one contact at a time—with a conductive grease. You can buy these compounds in electronics stores or auto parts suppliers.
