Ground (Earth) locations

Does anyone happen to know where ground G1001A is located?

It is the ground for the side repeater lights. (side markers) According to the diagram, the left and right sides share a common ground.

Thanks!

Re: Ground (Earth) locations

Usually the earth wire - the ground - is black.

I would imagine the earthing point is somewhere around the light clusters - front or rear.

An earthing point is usually no more than a screw that goes through a small eyelet on the wire to hold it against the bodywork somewhere..

If you have a look at the wiring around the front/rear lights you'll come across earthing points

The wires should go to the bulbs in the light clusters.

You'll recognise an earth lead as soon as you see it .. somewhere it will connect direct to a metal tag/metal which provides the necessary earthing

What I mean is that I can't see where the wires go after they leave the bulb holders. The wires are inside the fenders and head downward. I should have a chance to work it out this weekend. Thanks
