this seems like a grounding issue...make sure there is a clean down to metal connection between the block and the Black Cable~ make sure the battery is newer then ten or has a voltage around or higher then 12.5 VDC~

if alternator and power steering pump are on same belt the belt could be loose, or idler or tension pulley not keeping belt tight enough
