dielectric grease

Seem to have a few connections problems that are causing engine to cut our when running. I found a couple of loose connections.

It was suggested that I apply dielectric grease to the connections to improve conductivity etc.

Can I use it on the connection blocks to the fuse box and ignitor as well?

You can use it on any electrical connection; It just prevents corrosion; it doesn't improve conductivity.

To improve conductivity clean and tighten the connections. You can gently squeeze the female connectors to tighten the connections. Application of dielectric grease is recommended to keep out moisture that can cause corrosion connection issues.

If your connections are corroded, clean them first with Electronic spray cleaner.

IIRC some body a while back said that electrical contact cleaner will make the plastic holding multiple connectors brittle and break.

When using dielectric grease pack the connector so it will squish out a little,and pack the back of both sides too.
