I was also thinking that Andrew might want to take the female plug apart and tighten the little receivers a bit to promote better contact. I did that with mine and it has worked fine even without Deoxit.

Also, yes, spray both the male and female sections, then plug, in-plug them
several times.

The tach in my 1983 300TD runs only briefly after I fiddle with it
(stuffing something under the retaining collar to tighten the contacts).
I'm thinking it's either the gauge in the instrument cluster  or  slightly
corroded pins in the sending unit.  Easiest option would be to apply Deoxit
which I don't currently own.
