It would likely be easier & less expensive to Repair the Ignition Switch wires
Here is wires at the Ignition Switch to make it Start & Run

Constant 12 volts = RED & PINK/BLACK
Ignition 12 volts = Dark BLUE
Ignition #2 = BLACK/ORANGE (HEAT/AC)
Accessory = BLACK/WHITE
Starter = YELLOW
.
This wire is for the Key Chime
Keysense = Light BLUE (-)

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
