Default Electrical Short Problem 2008 Jeep Commander

Need some help. I have an intermittent electrical Short. Seems to happen about every 2 weeks or more. Below is a list of what works and what goes dead when it occurs. I can disconnect battery and reset system and everything will come back to life. Sometimes while driving everything will come back on its own, no battery disconnect. Any thoughts on where to start looking.
Wipers dead
Rear wiper dead
Turn signals dead
Misc buttons on steering wheel. Dead
Heated seats dead
120v power outlet. Dead
Fan control for rear air dead
ESP button dead
Head lights dead
Digital compass dead
Brake lights ok
Hazards ok
Ac heat ok
Power mirrors locks ok
Sunroof ok
Interior lights ok
Radio ok
Visor light ok

If anyone has any ideas on what to check please reply
I have checked all fuses, battery voltage, even pulled fuses one by one while everything was dead to see if I could isolate a circuit.

Thanks in advance for your help

Look for a bad (loose?) ground, probably in the dash.

Next time, post your question in whatever car section would be appropriate. "Forum Issues" is for people having issues with the forum. People having issues with their cars post them in the various car forums. That way, other owners, who may have encountered a similar problem, can either help or be helped by your post. Also, include what kind of car and year it is.
