Helo and welcome to JustAnswer! The pump doesn't shut off and it doesn't show closed on the dash because the power top control module isn't seeing a proper input to know that all components are in the closed position. The PTCM watches a handful of switches that monitor the position of each component during operation. The problem could be wiring, a failed switch, the PTCM or a mechanical issue preventing a switch from closing. Outside of a physical inspection of all components then first thing that would need to be one is use a scan tool to see if there are any fault codes setting in the PTCM, and if there are no codes then switch states will need to be monitored through the closing cycle to see if switches are closing or not.
