sorry for the delay..........
This can be the cause of :
a) a over heating Voltage Regulator which is part of the PCM
b) Alternator getting to hot
c) Battery having a bad or low Cell.
d) Overheating ASD Relay

When the PCM grounds the ASD relay, contacts inside the relay close and connect circuit A14 from fuse 1 in the Power Distribution Center.

Let me know if you need further

How can I test the ASD relay
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Also I replaced the battery last year with a used one, but everything tested good

Here is operation & testing of ASD Relay
Click Attachment Below

Battery cells can still go bad, making the Charging Circuit "think" the Battery is fully charged, which turns off & on the Alternator

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
