Ground strap locations on '06 with 4.4 engine?

My X5 has had some weird behavior while driving over the last few months:

"D" in drive selector in center display flashed/came on
4x4 icon in center display came on
triple death lights (traction control/brake...)
then Trans Failsafe Prog

The engine didn't stop, but after pulling over and turning off - then trying to restart, the battery was super weak. One time, it started right up.

I got a new battery. Have had this happen twice more.

Thinking the alternator might be the issue but want to check my ground straps first. Can someone tell me, or show me a picture, of where they are? I ain't finding em' online.

Thank you,
