The purpose of dielectric grease is as an insulator or as a sealant 
to keep moist air from leaking in and condensing on high voltage 
insulators. It's used in places where it might be important to keep a 
high voltage spark from going to ground before it gets to the spark 
plug. What you want is something that prevents corrosion. Almost any 
petroleum based grease will work here. Just press it into all the 
nooks and crevices of the connector.

Dielectric grease would probably be helpful, because it could seal 
out water, but I don't think it usually has the corrosion inhibitors 
that most lubricating greases have.
