I wonder if your alt is shot? Might be worth pulling it out and getting it tested.

connected directly to drivers side battery, ground is to a bolt in the firewall/floor area, using 2, 4ft firesticks on mirror mounts . 2002 f250 7.3 i have hooked many radios up this way with no problem however they were not diesel so is the rf from the radio affecting the computer? would it be better if i used a whip off the back bumper?

i don't know if my problem is the same or not. i had a 95 psd and the electric brake box went bad. every time i stepped on the brake it would kill the engine. i replace the box and fixed the problem. again don't know if this will help.

Do you have a chip? Some chips are sensitive to RF frequencies.
Try re routing the antenna cable so it's a little less close to the PCM on the drivers side kick panel and see if that helps anything.

I would say if the truck starts back good it is not the alt. possibly bad connection somewhere, those Galaxy radios ROCK, have the juice.

Edit; that came off mean. It's not the alt, because it dies when the radio is keyed. It's very doubtful of a bad connection, because...RF. It's likely a non-OEM, or OEM compliant, sensor/gauge/wire/something that accepts unintentional interference. It could also be an out of spec radio. A bad connection is not a likely culprit.
