Hello. This is caused by too many amperes going through the wire with an overload or bad connection. You will need to get a voltage drop test done to test the starter and wiring. You may have a starter that is drawing too many amperes. To have this checked, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the electrical issue.
