    Another trick that can help after everything is cleaned and di electricted is to VERY slightly bend the corresponding male pin on other side of connector so that it "presses" against one side of female connector barrel. Be careful not to overdo it tho.

    So I fixed it. I remembered I had a silver paste pen that I've used to jumper bios and other video card "fun". I used a 1mm bead of it and shoved it inside the pin. I did use dielectric grease around the connector. Drove it for an hour - no code. I did wrap the wire with a very small blue zip tie behind the connector shell in case I get the code again and I have to do a more elegant/permanent fix.

    Thanks for all the help on this one. I must be getting old as I used to chase wires on an electronic warfare plane in the Navy when I was a kid. Maybe I just wanted the easy button.

    That's where I've been finding corrosion. Two connectors were hiding it in that location. Others were clean. Typically it's on wires that are constant hot, even when key off, I believe. Same with ABS always hot wiring/connectors.


    Walmart, Home Depot, Autozone, Amazon, eBay etc. all sell CRC electronic contact spray. Can labeling may differ as it seems CRC has updated it's branding lately. Not inexpensive, but worth it, I think. Verified results on my SC.

    I think I went over this with someone here in the last few months....let me search and see what I can find. Might depend on year.

    You did go over it with me. It does NOT go through there...
