Was the fuel pump replaced BECAUSE of that symptom? Was pressure drop checked prior? IF no scanner (live data) available , pull spark plugs for a visual inspection , that may yield some good info.
follow clutch pedal up under dash , should be mounted on a bracket there , 2 wire connector. Can be by-passed as mentioned (test purpose) , but ALSO as mentioned , that is NOT recommended (also won't pass 'safety inspection in many states).
Possibly the system has detected a problem with the ABS system. Might want to have it scanned and/or diagnosed to find the extent of the problem.
Maybe brake pads should be inspected (even though you'd think they would have tried to sell them , when they did the tire balance , if they checked them). The other thing , which I think is more likely ,going by your description and timing of when the symptom started , is the backing plate is touching the rotor under the conditions described. Remove suspected wheel(s) , give the backing plate (or dust shield as some prefer) a push back , all the way around , watch the opposite spots' reaction , when doing this and apply pressure as needed to keep the distance even.
Can't 'fix' , until diagnosed.........That said , it would need to be checked for the following- fuse(s) , power/ground , bad connection in harness or at connector(s), broken damaged wire(s) , faulty motor , faulty switch. Has it had any body work or damage to the tailgate EVER? What is your skill level & test equipment availability if DIY?
FULLY charge the battery!!! Re-check the harness connector and wires to the alternator. Check/test all fuses AND what #1 & #2 say! Was it 'rebuilt' locally for you or did you buy a 're-manufactured' one? Have it tested to be sure it works! And AGAIN , I repeat , CHARGE the battery! Alternator is for maintaining the charge and supporting system while it's running , it is NOT meant to charge a dead battery. A dead battery can trash a brand new alt. in some cases.
Define "experts" please............Was Elmer Fudd a wabbit hunting 'expert' , or would he have been considered just an enthusiast?........................
stripped threads in the cylinder head? Depending on damage and shop doing work , may get by without pulling head.
Check fuses labeled for "EFI1 & EFI2' I believe. May be a blown fuse for fuel pump. While you're at it you may want to check ALL fuses.Large rubber mallet against fuel tank , may also confirm if it's simply a bad fuel pump. (old school)
IF it 'just clicks' , how is it 'turning over'? Charge the battery.
