The shocking "miracles" of Dielectric Grease.!!!
Here is a fairly quick and inexpensive way of preventing electrical problems and other miscellaneous diagnostic codes on the D-90 that the Prince of Darkness would surely disapprove of! This stuff is expensive!!!, about $7- for a tube a little than your pinky!
Every owner should take the time to buy a tube of silicone dielectric grease and go through the entire wiring on your car or truck especially if you reside in colder climates.
All plugs and connectors should be serviced, no exceptions.
After, you wont get false error diagnostic codes just because you simply washed your pride and joy or took the D-90- for a swim in a river!!
No loose contacts will produce heat and eventually melt the connectors (well, at least not as easily!).
Sometimes, water can find its way into a connector, producing a temporary short circuit which will then give an error code to your ECU.
Also, a loose plug or connector, while driving on a bumpy road or such, wont make a good contact and will eventually produce heat which will then melt plugs and connectors (one of the alternator/rectifier/regulator/ecu cause of failure).
The dielectric grease will then or get rid of the problems, or at least help prevent them.
Oh & this is a unique LR inspired Cat carrier. It is made from genuine Sheffield Steel and galvanized exactly as Rover does it!
