When trying to restore good contact at the TDC plug connection, consider the following procedure: lift the plastic locking tab on the plug connection and simultaneously pull it apart, clean the two male contact pins inside using “contact cleaner” (spray can type) & an ear bud, finally grasp each pin with a pair of long nose pliers (about half way down the pin length) and turn/twist each pin just slightly through an angle of say 10°.

This might just solve your problem!
