When I first start my 2001 Kia Rio all the lights go in and out faintly for a few minutes,but after driving it a few minutes everything goes back to normal. Had alternator checked, and a new batter.

The fuel pump is powered by same wires on start and while running, check fuel pump relay, it should be in fuse box, if fuel pump is faulty you can buy replacements here:

you may have to get a new wiring harness for it or create a jumper to run to the fuse box so that it only comes on when the car is on and shuts off with the car.

Are you positive its the fuel pump? Have you tried running the pump with the return line off to see if it pumps fuel? They don't always have to make a noise.
