I have the same issue but don't know what to do to fix it. Seems like the current suggestions arent working for others. Hoping someone finds a quick fix soon as winter is quickly coming.

I tried the solder route and it didn't work. Then went to an auto parts store and bought the adhesive and that didn't work either.
If you cannot find the special terminal glue at your local auto parts store you can re-solder the connector using silver solder which has a lower melting point than regular rosin core solder.
