I'm no chemist, but I certainly don't recommend the previous
solution(water?!?)  Somebody was dippin' into the secret stash when they
suggested that one :-)....If you don't want to go the route of c41/deoxit
etc, then windshield
washer fluid should be a much better choice than straight water....


What is wrong with water?  As long as you dry everything after, water will
less harmful than anything else.  Are you aware that when PC boards are
manufactured, like those used in the ECU, they are washed with water after
all of the components are soldered.  In the past when I've reworked a
computer board, e.g. change a resistor, I've taken the board to the bathroom
sink and washed off the flux.  You must of course dry it completely before
powering it.  This could be the tough part with the fuse box, since it has
many nooks and crannies.  Also, isn't windshield washer fluid about 95%
