NEED ADVICE!

I am having electrical problems with my celica! I had put in a post b/4 and no one replied...I could really use some advice about what is happing. When I hit a bump that jogs the car enough it acts REALLY funny. It is scary! It stalls a bit and the radio completely shuts off! What could this be?

I bought the car with after market work already done to it. I am thinking that it could be a lose ground...it keeps running but it feels like it draws the power straight from the battery!

Check the connections to the battery and also the connections to the motor.

Yep it sounds like a bad ground to me do what I said in my previous post.
