your system is pulling to many amps from the alternator causing the engine electronics to lose power. to fix this you are going to invest in a larger alternator. also wat are you running it will help alot. The amplifier has a guaranteed amount from the battery and alternator but the trucks electronics will fail if not enough power is there,
