Re: power draining, when lights are on and clicking in...
This sounds like an alternator problem. first chechk wires on alternator and starter make sure they are nice n tight , clean batt terminals and check engine and chassis ground . if you have a volt meter check n see if the alternator is charging minimum 13.2 v anything less is no good allso if it is above 13.2 then turn your lights n a/c on iv voltage drops then alternator is bad.

Some models have to be retaught how to idle once the battery dies, so you need to start the truck and feather the gas peddle to keep it running and do this for a few minutes, the computer has to relearn how to idle the engine.
have you tried the throtle control sensor. It is cheap and would have a lot to do with the issue you are haveing. It is right up on the top of the engine left side, easy to get to. Two screws, pop it off and on with the new one. Also throw in some Lucas fuel system cleaner good to keep up with that on a regular basis. Hope it helps!
Sounds like you will have to bleed your brakes again, but thats not the problem og hard brake peddle, need to check your power brake booster, sit right in back of master cylinder, check make sure it has vacum going to it, also to test it with engine off, press on brake peddle three time, then state engine with foot on peddle, peddle should go down a few inches, also with engine of peddle should feel soft for three pumps, if you have none of this , power brake booster is bad.
Check the fuel pump pressure using a fuel pump pressure guage. It would not necessarily be unheard of to have a new, but bad, fuel pump. No or low pressure, then take the pump back and get another one.
You may have a problem with the contacts in the ignition switch (not key part), when you crank the engine a signal is sent to the fuel pump to run, when it starts and you let off the key another set of contacts keeps the pump getting power Through a relay), these are known as crank and run modes.
