I am in rural Mexico, in the mountains of the Central Highlands. If we were in the US, this would perhaps be a minor problem. A cousin has an old 1994 Ranger. The fuel pump relay, located in the engine compartment fuse box. went bad, so he got a new relay.
Now, it does not plug in securely, so sometimes he has to open the hood and fuse box and wiggle it to make contact.
Ideally, one would probably replace the fuse box, though that would apparently involve a lot of wiring, right?
Does anyone have any ideas on how to “cob” this up so the contacts will make better?
Perhaps something to put in the slots to increase pressure on the blades?
Maybe gently twist the blades so they go in at an angle?
Maybe touch the blades with a solder iron and put on a small blob of solder to make the blade bigger? (Though it seems to me that solder is not a good contact material?
Maybe solder to the blades, a very small piece of brass or similar material?
Put a piece of aluminum foil over the blades?
thanks for any ideas, though the ideas of true “cob up” experts especially appreciated. Thanks.
