The ASD relay and fuel pump should only run for one second after turning on the ignition switch. They turn on again during engine rotation, (cranking or running). The Engine Computer knows to turn them on by the pulses it gets from the crankshaft position sensor and camshaft position sensor.

Thank you. So if the pump is out of the tank should it still turn on when the key is turned to on?

If it's connected and has a ground, just for that first one second, then again during cranking. If it doesn't run for that one second, check the fuel pump relay, ASD relay, and pump's ground wire. If it DOES run for one second but not during cranking, you won't have spark either. Have you checked for spark? If it's missing, check the cam and crank sensors.

The fuel gauge is pegged on full? And the batt gauge is reading a little low?

Find the feed wire to the ignition coil, any injector, or either small wire on the back of the alternator and measure the voltage on it. You should see 0 volts at first, 12 volts for one second when the ignition switch is turned on, it'll go back to 0 volts, then the 12 volts must come back during cranking. If it doesn't come back during cranking, suspect the crankshaft position sensor or the camshaft position sensor.

This is weird but I have 12volts at the injectors and coil with the key on or off? Could I have something grounded that should not be?

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Internet provider was down again yesterday for the entire day.

Sounds like you have your voltmeter grounded to the battery positive post. It should be on the negative post.
