2000 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic

my explorer will start for a few seconds then it dies. I removed the fuel tank and test the pump and when it is given direct power it works. When I hook it up to the system again it will come on for the first few seconds then I don't hear it come on again even if I release the pressure in the system, unless I turn the key off then on. I gave the pump direct power again and ran the few line to a jerry can and emptied the tank in under a minute and there was lots of pressure. Any ideas of what the problem could be? Any help would be greatly appeciated
