I've been wanting to clean all the grounds in my Loyale for a while now to troubleshoot electrical problems more effectively, but I don't have the slightest clue where these are located and my manuals can't seem to give me any info either.

Can anyone give me a list (most importantly the one responsible for A/C)?

I've only found two grounds in the engine bay.

One goes between the tranny and the 'overhang' right under the spare tire.

The other screws into the body just forward of the battery, and goes to the block just to the left of the battery (looking from the front of the car).

I just cleaned these on my wife's loyal, and was amazed how dirty they were.


Another thing to check if you have an ohm meter, is the resistance to the radiator. Today I'm going to run some dedicated grounds to it on both our cars. One car had 500ohms of resistance to the rad :slobber:

Here are a few under the bonnet:

  • Battery to starter/bellhousing.
  • Unibody to bolt holding water pump inlet tube to cylinder head under alternator
  • Under the coil bracket/ingition amplifier
  • Bellhousing to unibody up under spare tire.

Gonna bet that after a year and a half, his grounds have been handled. Besides, this is old gen. No Legacies here.
