    Plow hooked Up and plow lights are on but the switch box indicator light won't turn on. This happened to me once before the first time i hooked it up this season to plow. In that situation I just firmly pressed the connectors together after blowing the connectors out. I am going to assume that grease would fix this issue? Atlas that's what filled the holes when it was new. What type of , grease?, do I need ?

    just read up on it, im seeing that its dielectric grease to use? Just want to make sure. ALSO, is it safe to spray in some fluid film/wd-40 into the female connector and onto the male connector pins to eliminate and small amounts of rust or?

    Dielectric grease. Clean contacts well before applying the grease.

    I don't know, is it designed to conduct electricity? Tube of dielectric is only few bucks at local auto parts store. But if you have rust on the pins I don't think any type of grease will help without cleaning everything first.
