often this is a problem because your motor mounts are soft or have failed....when you go around the corner, the motor shifts and is pulling on one of the power cables,,,,possibly has worn the insulation off and it shorts to ground. When you get back straight, the wire that was shorted has re-positioned itself and everything is fine.
