Bad battery connections. Tighten and clean the connections. Inspect the cable ends. If they are old they might be cracked and not tightening all the way down.

Start where the work was just done. They may have left something loose or cracked a battery terminal. Check the ground where it bolts to the frame or body for loose corroded connections.
