Die-electric grease do's and don'ts

I posted this similar question in the wrong forum! I think it belongs here. My first question was awnsered but now I have another one. When I cleaned up my steering column I placed die-electric grease on the contacts on the turn signal switch. Are these contacts ment to be dry like the cap and rotor of the distributer? What contacts besides bulb sockets and spark plug boots(both ends) should this stuff be applied to???

Generally connections subject to moisture. It won't do any harm elsewhere though.

Rust Check Light is great for Smaller Electrical Contacts, Relays and Light Sockets and yes even Rotor Caps. I would use Di-Electric Lithium in major Electrical Connections such as around the Fuse Panel, Battery Junctions and Ground Straps.

I agree. The rule is if you can see the grease, you have applied too much. Kevin
