Looks like the fuel pump relay gets some of the power from the PCM. Check fuse #20 in the battery fuse box and check fuse #105 in the same box. Fuse #20 should only get power with the key on or while cranking. Fuse 105 is for the start interupt relay, so make sure the security light is going out after 3 seconds with the key on.

let me know when you can.

You're welcome, remember, we are looking for power on fuse 20, not just that it's good.
