The gauge saga continues! pt.2 grounds!

soo im driving a 2005 focus zx4 with the 2.0 duratec engine
and when i showed a video of the guage sweep test to a ford guy at a dealership service center he said huh. youe've got a loose ground somewhere
which is what i suspected. so after internet research (aka googling) as well as checking a haynes manual. i cant seem to find a list of the grounds locations and which ones are responsible for what.
grab your people this is gonna be a doozy.

where are the grounds located on my car and what are they responsible for?

Moved to General Tech Chat, poor fit for Engine Performance mods section.

LOTS of grounds, all over the car. Worry about under the dash for your concern.

thank you i figured that would be the case if they use shortest path to ground.
i wanted at least a list of grounds locations but ideally id have a general idea of what their responsible for as well to help with any future possible problematic behavior
i was hoping to get around to checking them all if one turns up bad.

edit: update on what ive found so far
under drivers side kick panel 2 both look fine and dont wiggle at all
engine compartment on fender metal to the drivers side of the battery 2 same
near passenger strut tower 1 same.

while i was in there i also cleaned up the negative battery terminal connection a bit as well.
