Every time I disconnect wiring connectors I use this when re-assembling. Insures clean positive current flow. I'm not good with electrical, so this is my insurance for piece of mind.

I have used this spray on numerous items while rebuilding my 87 Camaro. It is able to clean all electrical parts even as dirty as mine were.

      Comments about CRC Lectra-Motive Electric Parts Cleaner, 19 oz.:

      I've use this product exclusively with audio parts (to remove the scratchy sound you get when you move the volume button and to clean electrical parts. It works great BUT the cans regularly stop working when there is more than 80% still left in the can. My current can won't spray. I tried removing any clogs in the spray mechanism (as instructed by on-line help) to no avail.

      Comments about CRC Lectra-Motive Electric Parts Cleaner, 19 oz.:

      Had a weak starter on my Jeep Cherokee. Turns out oil had made its way into the starter gumming it up. Instead of buying a new starter I bought a can of this stuff, took apart the starter and cleaned it all out. Put it back together and boom starts like a champ. CRC products do what they're supposed to do. Messy as hell though but what do you expect.

                Wanted to save money to get engine light to stop coming on. Shop gave me estimate of $60 labor, $17 for BG MAF Cleaner. Bought this can, took air filter cover off, sprayed down the MAF Sensor, put air cover back on, let it dry. Engine light gone!
