Hi ....what that means is that you are still not making good contact or the terminals have gone south...........if you did clean them up good try this next.............get a nail file or a pencil eraser and go over them with that ..........take your time you don't want anything to snap off and see if it might do the trick................there also is a spray contact cleaner if you wanted to try that ......has this safe been out of use for a while?

yeah you'll probably have to spend a little time with it .........an alcohol swab will probably get off all the corrosion........again try not to pull at it because those type of wires are thin
