I have a 93 dodge dakota,i'm trying to find the ground strap.

I have a 93 dodge dakota,i'm trying to find the engine ground strap.
While driving down the road the truck will die, doesnt spit or sputter or anything, just dies all at once. It will restart everytime, but it dies randomly. could be one mile or several miles. I get codes 3 flashes pause 3 flashes, another code, 3 flashes pause 5 flashes, last code 2 flashes pause 5 flashes.
I was told it could be the engine ground strap is loose or broken but i cant find where the strap should be.
