I`m glad to see a "Sticky" on this...
Now I ain`t gotta hunt it down in the forums...
Thank You @swifty2014

Yeah, my 98 model finally burned that connector...
For so long I`d tell folks here that Mine is Fine, until what? three years ago...
So I reckon what they`re telling was true, ""It`s not a question of it doing it or not; but rather WHEN""

It`s soldered now,
Dennis

I have some electrical lube which is supposed to encourage current flow and keep the heat down. So far it has been working. I did replace a couple of the connectors inside the clip also. Don't ask me what this stuff is since it is so old I can't even read the label any more. It is supposed to be for copper to aluminum wiring connections. I put this on my 3 yellow wire connector,

Yes @kesanders I also use a Antiseize (sp) with copper and also Electrical Joint Compound whenever I`m working with these connectors, switches and such...
My connector lasted way longer than most,

Is there an average age/mileage that these connectors fail?

Would it be a good idea instead of regular maintenance on this connector to just hard wire it and be done with it?

I had only cleaned that connector once, when I changed out the Rectifier/Regulator...
I put it back together with EJC, to keep crud from happening...

Lets RIDE,
