Radio turns off when headlights turn on. Help.

So just got my truck back from the dealer, had My coolant system completely Redone batteries are connected and everything. Never done it before, but radio works with lights off. And shuts off completely when lights are turned on. No electrical had been done. Never did this before. What do I do?

It's not factory is it? I have no clue what's good in terms of double din touch screens. I'm sure quality ain't cheap, but 400-500 seems a bit steep
