1999 S70 Ignition Switch Schematic needed!

Post by roy1956 »

I took apart the ignition switch on my 1999 S70 and didn't realize that the pins weren't attached to the plastic guard. Now I have no idea where wires go. Further compounding the problem is that I only have SIX wires that attach to the back of the switch which leaves three posts with no wire. The other schematics I have seen on this forum have 7, 8, or 9 wires and the wire colors don't match up with mine.
Does anybody out there have a picture or drawing of a 1999 S70 Turbo ignition switch schematic? THANKS!

Sorry cn90, I'm just not seeing a diagram that fits for my 1999 S70. Yes, there are a FEW different diagrams on this forum. I thought the drawing by Lee on the paper might do it but there are too many wire colors for my car. If you look, he has a wire going to each pin. I have NINE pins but only SIX wires.
I am hesitant to just "try" different combinations as a mistake could potentially fry the wiring harness.
Seriously, if you want to help, you could be a good guy and attach a link. Glib answers aren't really helpful.

Here is one for the same year x70 but maybe one of the wires is a different color?
