You need to replace your alternator with one that has a higher amp output rating,And maybe add an additional battery to compensate for the increase draw on the electrical system.
Please take time to rate this fixya solution.

First you need a High Output Alternator and an Optima Battery Wired up as Extra Power to Supply the System. The System is Robbing too much power from the Battery to Run the Engine Components.
