I reseet the relay inside of trunk and fuel cut off button it worked for a little bit then went back to running even when engine is off. How do I reset the brain on this car

The relay might be faulty, did you test it? Try replacing. TO clear the memory , disconnect the negative battery cable for 20mins and reconnect.
