Thank you. It sounds like there is a short in the fuel pump module. Typically this is caused by a failure in the in tank wiring. Did you plan on fixing this yourself?

Okay. If there is any further assistance that you would need on this please let me know. This would typically run about $500-600 to have repaired at a shop.
