Thanks for the response. So, I would have to get to them from the inside, or from the picture below? Assuming it is not either area labeled A or B below?

Thanks again,

Boy, those are really easy to get to compared to my '91, which are tucked over to the left in the back as Kiwi mentioned.

I'd consider it routine maintenance to unscrew all those, spray some contact cleaner on them, brush/blow them out, then reassemble with dielectric grease.

And push on each pin (with something non-conductive) to make sure they are seated. I found one bad one on mine. Had to remove the connector by accessing from the gen radiator door and extract the pin, bend the tabs, and reinsert. See pic.

Sorry for the confusion. I don't think that you can get to them from the inside unless you pulled the carpet up. Much easier from the front. I just figured it would be easier to visualize where they were with that description. I'm not sure which batch they are on your year model as mine is set up different in the front. If I had to guess, I would go with "B" since that is closer to the gen bay where the trans ECU is.

If you go through and service them as Mose suggest, be careful putting them back together you don't want to bend a pin.

Hi Bryan,

Did you lift up the wires and look in area C (See 2nd Attached picture) for the bulkhead connectors?

Hi John,

No I haven't, but I will. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks guys!

I will do more investigating and some maintenance on those connectors. Hopefully I can trace back to the correct connector.

Thanks again,
