My Ford Taurus is on the fritz, and my friend and I took a peek under the hood. It looked like there was a lot of gross material around some of the wires and electrical contacts. Everything is pretty much stuck together. How do we clean the wires, etc? How do you unstick electrical connectors in the car?

That’s no fun! By learning simple tricks here and there, you can avoid calling an electrician every time you have an electrical problem. You’ll be happy to know that the solution is much simpler than you may think.
Here’s what we know about unsticking electrical connectors in the car:
  • WD-40 Specialist Contact Cleaner removes dirt, dust, condensation, and flux residue on electrical contacts. It uses Smart Straw tech that cleans 95% of surface contaminants.
  • If your car isn’t working properly, check the problem area and use a tester to evaluate. Then,** reconnect** any detachments.
  • Next, penetrate hard-to-reach nooks and crannies with WD-40 Specialist Electrical Contact Cleaner.
  • WD-40 Specialist Electrical Contact Cleaner also eliminates short circuit danger and restores electrical conductivity. It can be used on plastic, metal, or rubber and will evaporate in a flash.
Now that you know how easy it is to use some WD-40 to clean up the wires in your Taurus, make sure your car still has excellent car insurance for the rest of its life on the road. And by excellent, we don’t mean overpriced. Did you know most Americans overpay for their policy every month and don’t even know it?
