gunnerbuck - I googled your suggestion and found a few threads that described the symptoms that I'm experiencing. I went out this morning and took the connecter off:
2 of the wires were broken and another 2 were just about to snap off their solider points. I'm going to fix it today and fill the connecter with silicone. I'm hoping this is what causing my problems... I'm going to go over my wire loom as well and check for any worn areas.
