I need some feedback on this plug.  Replacing my ac control panel.  I had an electrical short spot in the panel which I think is causing a battery drawn down issue.  Plug contacts look fine to me.  3 pics attached one panel, three of the plug if I am doing this right.

 Connector looks fine to me. Looks like some old dried out dielectric grease on it, but the plastic and brass terminals look nice. The control panel tho.....yeeesh!

Good news.  Yes the panel still worked, but I have a replacement.  Major battery drain when the a/c system was used.  I am hoping it will fix that issue.  Should I use some of that grease on the install, I have some.  Thanks for the help.

Use some dielectric grease sparingly on the male side of the connection, and that should be good to go.
