Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. This issue is an electrical internal malfunction. Reprogram/reflash will not rectify the issue for this problem, as the problem is not software related. You need to replace the unit. Most likly the internals of the motor (armature/windings, etc) have been damaged.

i told you i changed the pump and now ecm communication circut malfunction comes up on my scanner i just want my money back what a waste of money

I need to verify your scanner results versus the code chart mate. Just because your scanner says that does not mean it is true. Some scanners are not compatible with the Toyota system. If you want youe money back, all you need to do is contact customer service. Have a good day.
