Default Where can I buy Deoxit D5

Hi Guys. Well my CEL is back on and I suspect its the glow plug harness the dealer advised me of the last time. Before replacing I would like to try cleaning it. I went looking in Mississauga today to a few stores listed in one of the links but they never heard of it. Any ideas where I can buy some close by? Thanks

I don't know which home improvement type stores are available to you in Ontario, but any store which sells 'do it yourself' electrical panels (for home use) etc should have an equivalent product. It is designed for use when installing/clamping aluminum wiring [think 'from the meter'] into the main circuit breakers. It is usually a grayish paste. It prevents oxidation of the aluminum conductors where they contact the circuit breakers. Prevents overheating and fires which can occur when high amperage loads are carried.

It is usually REQUIRED by the national electrical codes for house wiring where aluminum contacts another metal and must conduct current. If you can't find a store meeting these criteria - get in touch with an electrical contractor - he may give you a little bit. You only need a very small amount (a few grams).

Don't use a paste as it will dry out in the harness. It is an ANTI oxidising product, not a DEoxidising one. It won't do an already oxidised harness any good.

I also don't recommend using dielectric grease. For the same reason, it will not remove the oxidation causing the problem. In fact, it will seal it in which will make it even harder to clean it properly.

Deoxit D5 is available in Mississauga at Audio Operations at 600 Orwell Street (near Cawthra & The Queensway) Unit 29. It is also available online at www.rpelectronics.com

Unfortunately, there is no trickery to get the light to go off by itself. You need a vag-com. I'm sure there are folks in your area that have them though.

I've looked in the past, and no. I got a contact cleaner from them in the past, but it is no substitue for Deoxit. I gotta pick up a can for myself soon.
