If the gray wire has 12 volts,and then drop,s to 5 volt,s,may be check the fuel relay,or the pump,could be locked up causing the drop in voltage.

Can you hear pump when you turn key?

is very quiet, i tested 12 volts at fuse panel & now 12 volts at harness dropping to 8 volts under same conditions as first stated above, it is also the second brand new fuel pump. I'm starting to wonder if the grey wire to the pump harness needs replacing from fuse panel to harness. I'm going to check the continuity on it first
