This sounds like a short in the wiring system, I would be looking at all of your major ground wires. there are a few from engine to body of vehicle and another one I would look at rite away would be from body to frame. Also check your battery leads to ensure that they are tight and also check the wires going to the altenator. Good luck and remember to rate all solutions that you get. Thanx.

Car Radio has intermittent audio


bad wiring
if stock ? its not normal
if aftermarket , typical.
can be loose fuse.
or bad connections to the head or amp.
did you lose all sources?
CD/ AUX mp3, radio, am/am, all mode fail?
or just one, this is key to what bad.
if lamps go dead.
or just front or back speakers go dead.

Why does the CD skip and the radio channels go off air when I hit a bump?


CD skip when hitting a bump is common in factory or low end players also if your player is not secured properly the disc will move slightly and the laser loses it's place, so to speak, for a second. The radio thing could be a loose antenna wire connection, possibly related to the fore mentioned problem. Hope that was helpful.

My 2003 ford super duty loses power to the electrical devices, gauges , radio, odomeder, wipers..when i hit a bump


Likely to find a loose connection to the dash harness, turn on the devices that fail when hitting bumps, and grab the harness and jiggle to make concern appear.  If so, trace to weak connection point.
