It makes a short-circuit. I think is your shower leaking and gets water near your cables and takes your power out

Seems to me there is a fault in the wiring they should be on separate wiring feeds and not interfere with each other

Is the breaker in your fuseboard tripping when you turn on the shower.
The circuit the lights are working on shouldn't have anything to do with the shower circuit only thing I can see happening here is your rcd is tripping indicating you have a faulty shower unit

There has been incorrect wiring which should be checked by an electrician as soon as possible as the are completely separate circuits with very different power ratings.
