Greetings

I was wondering if anyone had a copy of the wiring diagram for the 1998 S70
that they could either send me, or point me in the right direction to find?

Many thanks

Hammo

I'm afraid it ain't as simple as that. Unlike the cars of yesteryear, it
isn't possible to represent all the electrics for a modern car in a single
diagram.

If you can get hold of a Haynes Service and Repair Manual for the 70-series
in Australia, you'll find about 16 pages of wiring diagrams. The manual I
have is No. 3573 - but that is aimed primarily at the British version of the
car, and it might be different in Oz.

You can by a boo from Volvo with the complete wiring, its around 100 pages.
What part of the electrics are you interested in?

Volvo wiring <http://www.a-b.com.pl/VOLVO/850/>
Try this link. It has many wiring diagrams and the S70 is an 850
with some cosmetic changes.

The above link *may* help but, AIUI, there were a lot of electrical changes
between the 850 and 70-series in addition to the cosmetic body changes.

Good point.

I was hoping that by some point of luck there would be on some "hidden" site
that I could access and and select the bits I am after while I wait for the
manual to turn up.

I should have explained that I was curious to see where the wiring loom for
the towing electrics comes in, and where I could get a feed (with extra
fuses) to have a power outlet in the boot.

While on the S70, do you have a full size spare or the space saver in the
boot? I'm looking at getting a steel rimmed 940/960 so that I continue on
my merry way if one becomes damaged. My sister in law has the LPT S70 and
has a factory alloy (16") in the boot, so I guess a 15 " will be of no
problems. It measures up.

Cheers

Hammo

I was having trouble connecting to the volvo site that I think you are
referring to and have a manual on order, though it was mentioned it will be
a while.

I'm putting ina tow-bar and would like to have a power outlet 12V in the
boot.

Also, any idea to increase the headlights performance? I was keen to wire
in some extra lights, and have aligned the lights, but would prefer a tad
more "spread" on the road.

Cheers

Hammo

I found this one before, but wasn;t sure the difference between the wiring
looms for he S70 and 850. It does have some good info though.

Many thanks

One I notice straight away was there is actually a switch in the seat belt
to turn off the seat belt warning light. Ours turns off after 8 or so sec
and doesn't appear to have any wiring going to the actual seat belt clip.

Some good info though.

Thanks

Hammo

When I wired my V70 for towing, I used the Volvo kit (which I think is the
same for S70 and 850s) which made life very easy because it has
plugs/sockets which plug straight onto the wiring harness. You have tgo be
bery careful how you connect some of the lights so as not to upset the bulb
failure detection device. The kit does it by providing a "sandwich" which
plugs into the harness next to the device.

On the V70 at any rate, there is a connector near the rear lights with a
very hefty live wire in it which - by default - is only used to power the
window-mounted radio arial. You can use this as a live feed for other
things.

My V70 was supplied with a "space-saver" spare - but the spare wheel
compartment can easily accommodate a full-size spare. I bought a second-hand
rim from a breaker's yard (alloy to match the originals - but I would have
settled for a steel one).

Not all variants use the same wheel size. Mine are 195/60x15. Some cars use
16" or even 17" wheels, usually with lower profile tyres - so the overall
diameter is similar, but the width may be greater. Try one of your road
wheels in the compartment and, if it fits, try to get another one the same.
Be very careful if you buy a wheel intended for a rear wheel drive car -
because the offset may be different.
