[DML] Re: List of Grounds

There are two harness connectors under the washer bottle:
- Larger connector has two 12 GA ground wires: Driver side head/side lights and passenger side head/side lights
- Smaller connector has one 16 or 18 GA ground wire: trunk light and washer pump

Nothing in the driver's cockpit is grounded through the washer bottle harness connectors -- they are all ganged onto one 12 GA wire behind the central HVAC duct.

> 11. There's a connector with about 9 terminals, one is ground, that's parked inside the washer bottle cover. But it's not technically a "ground point". But it does ground much of the dashboard area! The black cover with the bottle inside it that's held on with way too many rusty screws.  You can usually pull the cable out and get to the plug without taking the cover off. Carefully pull out the grommet that's right next to the cover.
