Hi,my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you with your question. The issue that you are having and the voltage that you are getting from the charging system indicates that the alternator is electrical failing and causing your issue. Replacing the alternator will fix the issue.

, diagnostic plug in say "low volts at fuel pump" do this mean altonater is not giving right volts to power up fuel pump,as volts at tick over is 14.33v but


11.5v when load is on, engine will not rev up dose the fuel pump need a min volts to work.

Yes the fuel pump is not getting the correct volts to function properly,the readings under a load indicates the alternator is bad and needs to be replaced.
