Twice recently when I cut steering hard to right, all electrical went dead and car would not start. After a while will start with a jump and then run fine. Is this a power steering pump short?

Do you
have the same problem?

There is a TSB regarding the main loom rubbing against the starter heat shield, this has been know to cause this problem, look here first.
