I've found 2 ground straps on my 2004 Kia Rio. Can anyone tell me where anymore happen to be?

Don't get confussed ground straps come from the NEG on the battery and always go back to ground.Witch is the engine block and the frame the tires are rubber so thats the ground .
Things don't work correctly if feed power from the battery with out a good ground .SO in a nut shell connect the ground wires to the engine or frame and see if it fixes the issue

ground straps on engines are either from the battery earth post to the engine or to a body point . If it is to a body earth point the engine earth strap will be around an engine mount. From the engine bolt around the rubber to the body mount bolt. probably on the mount closest to the battery

I have a 2001 Chrysler Town and Country, the battery light comes on intermittent, and there is a ground strap going from the motor mount to the frame that is burned off at the frame, also now that the...

The ground strap is the main engine ground. When you try to start the vehicle there is power available to the starter but since the starter uses the engine for a ground and the engine uses the ground cable to ground itself to the battery and that cable is no longer in tacked you have an open circuit. Fix or replace that cable and at least one if not both of your problems should be solved.

Headlight and dash light flicker

this is true ! Usually the strap will run from either the ground post or sometimes the the top mount bolt , to the body . Look at the ground straps that run from the engine to the frame and engine to body . Chances ar one of these straps are broke . They are located from the bottom behind the engine near the firewall , and on the passenger side of the engine underneath . I had a 2004 venture that the interior and display lights went out , a control module in the dash that ran the display , daylights , and cooling fan went out ! traded it in soon after !!! Good advice !
