Hi jadams6831,

Thank you for the donation.

No, it is not a problem with the fuel pressure regulator if the fuel pump is not running.

The voltage should be battery voltage at the fuel pump and since you are only getting 7.3 volts, something is wrong somewhere.

Is your engine 4.0, 4.6 or 5.4 L?
Did you test the voltage at the fuel pump relay?

Hadnt gotten that far yet. Did swap out relay though, it didnt change anything. Cant figure out why changing alt caused this or coisadence.

The fuel pump relay gets it power from Fuse # 10 ( 20 A) ( Light Blue/Orange wire). Check if you have 12 volts to the fuel pump relay via this wire ( terminal # 30 of relay ).

Remove fuel pump relay and apply battery voltage to terminal # 87 of fuel pump relay and check if the fuel pump works.

Under right side of dash there is an inertia fuel shut off switch. Check for continuity between th eDark Green/Yellow and Pink/Black terminals.
