try to find CONDUCTIVE grease. Dielectric grease is NON-CONDUCTIVE. Conductive grease is best for promoting a good electrical contact (less is better). A 2 ounce jar of the stuff will last a lifetime. Dielectric grease is like petroleum jelly - best on the outside of the connection to prevent oxidation.
