    If it cranks over but doesn't start first step have the computer checked for codes. If there is a bad sensor it should show up. Next I would check for fuel pressure. No pressure I would check power at the pump, no power I would look at the fuel pump relay if it had power at the pump but no pressure I would replace the pump.

      Thank you for your response. We did think about the fuel pump and relays. Gonna try to reset the pump and check the relays also. Do you think the voltage regulator could go bad even though the alternator us bad? The regulator is with the alternator.
