Hi, yes it snaps as soon as you turn on the ignition, however I found the wire loom in back of motor was on a hot pipe, it melted several wires together, so that must be the problem
Do you
have the same problem?

That's where I would start is where all the wires are melted together.

Yes but the pump could be coming on and you might not be able to hear it. Start by fixing those wires and go from there.

So when you only put power to the pump not ground the pump kicks on?The pump fuse is good and you did try swapping the fuel pump relay?

You need to see if you have a constant ground from the wire harness to the pump and if the power wire to the pump gets power when cranking. Also you said you said when the pump gets power it won't shut off?When you give it power from your extra battery?If so the pump will run as longer as there is power. So you hooked up a fuel pressure gauge that's how you know it won't build pressure with the pump running?

There is a wire diagram and locations of the two relays.
