MAYBE YOUR MAIN BATTERY GROUND IS NOT GOOD TO THE ENGINE/ BODY
THE STARTER AND OTHER STUFF IS SEEKING A GROUND, WHEREVER IT CAN GET IT----USUALLY A SMALLER WIRE .........WHICH CANNOT HANDLE THE AMP DRAW.
I'VE SEEN THIS MANY TIMES----MOSTLY WHERE THE BATTERY CABLE SPLITS OFF AT THE CLAMP THE "BIG CABLE" GOES TO THE ENGINETHE "LITTLE ONE" GOES TO THE BODYTHE LITTLE ONE GETS FRIED (OR WORSE)
