Default GXP electrical short

My 2004 GXP seems to loose electrical power when I go over bumps, particularly train tracks. I noticed it when the heater fan would go out intermittently going over the bumps. Now my fan motor will not come on at all. Any help with be appreciated. I have checked all the fuses.

Check the ground strap that bolts to floor pan under the back seat. They are not well engineered.
