We have changed computers twice, all of the sensors, my mechanic has
disconnected everything it doesn't need to start as to eliminate more wiring
shorts.  I the check engine light comes on, the vehicle will start, but if check
engine light does not come on, just turns over and fuel pump (new, twice)
keeps running.

Until it gets in limp mode and overides the regular setting it will not run? And when its not cranking the fuel pump never get done with the priming and just runs and runs?

Try a fuel regulator.

Check the fuel rail pressure, the regulator might be bad
