DIE-ELECTRIC GREASE
#1

Do you use die-electric grease on every connector inside and out the car or just the connectors that are exposed to the elements? And...Is there a better product out there than that messy grease?

I use regular Vaseline on all of my electrical connections, including the battery posts.

A spray contact cleaner/lubricant/protector. Radio Shack used to have a good one. I found a local electronics store that has a product called DeoxIT D, that seems to work well. They also have a Gold series that is supposed to protect better, but I haven't tried it, yet.

 Now that's interesting Don. Something else to bookmark for future reference.

Here's something else I use, a bulb grease that doesn't have silicone in it, so not quite as messy and works pretty good

I got a tube of it years ago, I believe at AutoZone, for the clearance light bulbs on a motorhome we had, still a little left. All they have now is individual packets of it. Amazon may have it, but their picture is misleading

If the connection is not in the interior I use dielectric grease. Silicone grease is messy, but it is good stuff that won't wash out or degrade much over time.

Now if the connection is already corroded or messed up in some way I have used that deoxit gold stuff Don has mentioned. It is really expensive, but is pretty much magic in a can. That stuff is also good on switch contacts. I have seen it work wonders on large industrial rotary selector switches.
