    The problem is if you fill the female socket with dielectric when you insert the male pin it forces the female socket out the back of the connector.

    Is this strictly an innuendo based comment, or should the grease really not be applied to female connectors?
    Well fck my face...And with that post...The Engineer may have just discovered his electrical problem.

    depends on the design but if it is a sealed connector than yes the grease has to go somewhere...

    you dont want to put an insulator into a spot you want to be conductive

    is there a single connector that is a problem? What connector is it?

    I put a light coat of the grease around the perimeter of the female connectors when I hooked the connectors up on my P-X. I've since been having an intermittent Intake Pressure error code. Not sure if the amount of grease I used was enough to cause the problem though. And I don't remember putting any on the MAPS connector anyhow.

    personally I would clean them and see if the problem is still there. Also check the back side to make sure no wires pull easily. How many conductors are in the connector?

    OTAS Faults on iS 2009 and 2010
    (Information from BRP!)
    O.T.A.S Fault Codes
    Last season we received several reports of OTAS
    fault codes being stored with no problems being
    found. Many times the technicians report that after
    troubleshooting the system, the faults did not reoccur.
    We have had many of these sensors returned
    for evaluation, and have found that 100% of them
    have had no problem found.
    After investigating we believe the faults may be
    caused by an excessive amount of dielectric grease
    in the three pin Deutsch connector. It appears that
    the grease may be opening the female terminals
    (hydro-lock) causing an intermittent connection.
    When troubleshooting this system you should check
    that all the terminals are fully seated in the connector
    housing and that there is not an excessive amount
    of grease inside the connector.
    NOTE: Improper use of dielectric grease may cause
    electrical connection issues.
    There has also been some confusion in testing this
    circuit, caused by an error in the 2009 and 2010
    SHOP MANUAL and WIRING DIAGRAM. The ECM
    terminal H1 should be the Black wire and the ECM
    terminal H3 should be the Black/Green wire. Please
    make sure to make the corrections to your Shop
    Manuals. This information can be referenced in the
    Service Bulletin 2010-8.
