OK, I was about to tackle it this weekend, but I received conflicting information about using the grease on the connectors.
I was told that if i grease the pins and re-connect, if the pins don't make actual metal-to-metal contact that it could screw things up even further. I did some looking around on the internet and found information backing this up.
Can I disconnect the connectors, clean up the contacts, put the grease on the pins and re-connect without a problem?
