When I wiggle this little white cube, my fuel pump works again....

My fuel pump recently wouldn't even turn on when I turned on the bike. It was a bad connection and when I wiggled the white box in the picture the pump whirrs back to life. I can reproduce and eliminate the problem by having the wires sit a certain way when they come out of the box. It's located under the tank.
I had a similar problem with one of these boxes up in the headlight area where if the wires coming out sat at the wrong angle, my speedo would lose power.
Is there a fix for this other than using a zip tie to secure the way the wires come out of the box to ensure good contact inside?
Really baffles me.. Thanks.

Thanks guys. I ended up opening it up only to find that the contacts were clean. I widened the main prong piece just a hair and fit it back into the plug.. all is well now without odd bending or fastening with a zip tie. Simple enough
