2001 Toyota Rav 4. Went to pizza wouldn't start. Replaced fuel pump, checked battery, fuses,relays are all good. Replace spark plugs. It ran great driving and it died and couldn't and would not start. There is no power to the fuel pump. Also with the key out of ignition the instrutment lights flicker with the door opened or closed, the shift indicator lights and the oil light just flicker non stop unless unhook battery. What is going on? Anyone else have or had this problem?

Sounds like the voltage regulator in the alternator...I suspect your alternator is going south

The last time I heard of something like this--dash lights flickering with the key out--was found to be rainwater leaking behind the dash due to a bad windshield installation. After re-mounting the windshield and drying everything out, the problem went away.
