My Nikon 105mm 2.8 Loses connection at far focus range

Hello! I just purchased an older but in great shape 105mm 2.8. Everything seems fine with the lens, except when I focus all the way out, it loses connection. If I'm autofocusing, and it focuses far away, it loses connection and won't work anymore until I switch to manual focus and move it back. If I move it slightly back from infinity, the connection comes back, and its consistent I this. I can't find anyone else who's had this problem! Anyone out there get this before? Thanks!

    First thing I would do is to clean the lens contacts with some alcohol. Unmount your lens and clean shiny dots on the back of the lens, close to the mount. Repeat that with the camera side, remount the lens and see what happens.
