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)

LETS LOOK OVER MY LINK AND DO WHAT IT SAYS
