I had the ground connection come loose behind the front left speaker. It caused me months of frustration. I finally got a schematic and ground locations and started in one at a time. The connection there has a dozen or so wires and it was fairly loose. I removed it, cleaned it and retightened it. It is also fairly easy to get at. Just a bit tight to get a wrench in there. One other loose ground on mine was the one behind the battery on the strut tower area.
