    Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! It sounds like you have a very poor power connection. Check the main leads at both ends to make sure they are tight. Any higher amperage load can cause you to drop power in a situation like this. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 20 '20 at 0:22

    Did all the ground cables get reinstalled and tightened on the engine? Did the starter battery cable get tightened, double check the work. – Moab Apr 20 '20 at 2:44
