Power loss to all 12v wires when parking or headlights are turned on. 88 Chevy

How about loss of negative frame ground ? You could hook a jumper cable between battery negative and body metal to test this. You have ground to engine so starter and alternator work.

What are the 2 ground wires going to thermostat housing on 1990 chevy 1500

They are engine grounds for all electrical components on the engine, the engine sits in rubber so it needs this type of ground.

One backup light works and one doesn't on a 88 chevy 1500. New bulbs and bulb holder.

Connect a Test Light between the ground wire on the light socket (bulb holder) and somewhere on the body (a clean/bare metal surface) and then put the transmission in reverse.
If the Test Light lights up, you have a bad ground (broken wire, bad/corroded connection). If it doesn't then use a Multimeter to check for power on the Positive side of the Socket, No or Low voltage means a bad wire. Battery voltage is generally 12.45 (without the engine running) and 14.5 (with the engine running) So if you're getting less than that (by more than .3) you have a poor connection or damaged wire

Where on a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo are the grounds on the engine block? ie:pcm,ignition coil etc.

The circuits you mention should be grounded to the battery through the main harness. The battery should be grounded to the engine at or close to the alternator, then the engine should be grounded to the frame then the body. Look for braided metal wiring.

I did a tune up but now 94 plymouth acclaim will turn over but will not start

Check to ensure that all ignition wires are properly seated...especially the coil wire at the distributor. make sure there are no disconnected ground wires at the source of your sparkplug wires. and... check to see if the spark plugs may have a different top that may not be compatible with the plug wire ends.
Use an insulated screwdriver hold handle and plug it into a plug wire. Rest the screwdriver shaft a quarter inch from some bright metal on the engine and have someone crank the engine. You should have a spark off the gap between driver and grounded part. If not, begin looking at ground wire from battery and engine to frame ground link usually a braided metal cable.

I have a 1996 chevy z-71 w/the 5.7 vortec, automatic trans. I have a braided ground that is connected to the frame near my starter but i dont know where the other end is supposed to go (either the starter...

The braided ground is for the starter, the starter should be grounded to the frame. It's the ground that create most of the currant flow, so your going to reconnect the ground to the starter to keep the positive wires from over heating when trying to start the engine. Good luck and it's would not hurt to replace the ground if it's too corroded.

Ground wire? where does it go?

you can attach ground wires anywhere on the body as long as they are connected to a bare spot of metal. Usually, the braided one goes from anywhere on the engine block to anywhere on the body.
Basically, the battery ground wire goes to either the body or engine block. Then you need a path for the ground to the other component so there is a complete circuit.

How do I ground my receiver?

Use the black wire in the wiring harness, and connect it to the black wire in the car's harness. This grounds the receiver. If you have a chassis ground (a braided cable) for the receiver, ground it to any metal screw in a metal frame piece under the dash.
