Ef engine with El harness dizzy and ecu with smartlock bypass all installed and been runnig great for at least a year and a half thanks to a few good fellows on here

sounds like a short or a faulty lead on the battery. undo the positive lead clean the battery and terminal. also put a photo up of the battery and leads.

Yep Id definately say its the battery itself or bad contact between leads and battery.
