You want to try and disconnect the alternator of the car while the engine is running? That doesn't sound safe. why not pull the fuel pump relay?
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 8 months ago.
do you have a 6 or 8 cylinder?
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 8 months ago.
Open the hood, remove the cover from the fuse block and pull fuse #4 if that doesn't work, then pull #8
