S70 ground locations

Post by harryhendo » Mon Oct 24, 2016 7:12 am

On a 2000 S70 SE, manual trans, 248K miles, the radio, door locks, and central locking switches don't work. Using the diagrams in the Haynes manual, I discovered that all these use a common ground point, E5, which is described as "right hand inner wing/bulkhead". Translated from the British English, that means "right hand inner fender/bulkhead".

I looked all around, and only see a single strap ground from the right side of the engine to a ground point on the inner fender, but no other ground points.

Does anyone have a set of pictures or a description of where to find this and other ground points on the 2000 S70?

'92 940
'94 855 (manual!)
'00 S70 (manual, the $500 experiment)
'02 V70

I think there is one just below the ECU box and that might be what they are describing.
