    Never saw one...always wanted to write one. Most manuals show vague diagrams and schematics tell you it's in the system but not where. Been in the business a really long time and though I hate to admit it, there have been items even on my own cars that I had no clue as to what they were...they never broke, so I didn't have time to figure them out. And the dealers are no better...spent all afternoon tearing a dashboard apart once looking for a relay that was in the schematic and the dealer swore was in there...NOT!!! Item in question was hard relay, never was. Best you can do is track down each item in question one by one. Look in every manual you can find .

Echo 102585: I have another suggestion in terms of your getting references to your car. A Barnes and Nobel or other major book store will probably carry auto repair manuals. Sometimes the manuals may cover a specific make and model and some may cover a span of years makes and models. In any case, the books usually will carry the "Schematics" and parts locations. You can either make written notes to the specific issues (use a digital camera) and not buy the book or buy the book. You also have Half Price Books stores which may have used manuals as well as Ebay. Having a book in hand is a lot more help because you can have with you at the car.
You can try going to the Browser bar and just type in the year make and model car as well as the subject and sometimes you may get a host of sites which pop up that may offer a solution to you question.
