I would be looking for a break in the main electrical harness, try the wiggle test with the engine running on the harness when you get to a spot where it stumbles or dies that the place to cut it open and separate out the wiring.

I would check the motor mounts and the transmission mount to see if they are broken. If the motor is shifting around it could cause a short.
