It might be ALL electrical connections and parts that need a dab of dielectric grease (DG). Certainly as I have has anything electrical apart, I have reinstalled with DG in the connectors both at the device being powered (e.g. the headlight) as well as any intermediate connectors. On the rare situations where I am accessing a switch, I have put DG in those. One of the possible problems (although less likely) is at the wire to pin crimps where wires enter connectors. It would be a real pain in the a$$ to remove all of these pins from their respective connectors and reinstall with DG present.
I've had issues with my ABS light coming on in the rain (indicating that the ABS had ceased to function as well as my low beam headlight going out. This happened at night but fortunately, my high beam still worked. I rode the remaining 10 miles home with the high beams on and got a lot of cars flashing their brights at me.
