So it isn't the fuel pump that is humming? To take care of your problem, you need to do some diagnostic work with your multimeter to find the parasitic drain on your system. There is a video you can follow on youtube. Search 'Eric the car guy, parastitic drain' and you will get the help you need.

took it to the shop and had a new battery put in. guy at the shop said it was fine. still humming and died while driving home. replaced original relay no hum but still dies after driving a while. thinking about replacing coil pack but tired of throwing money at the problem.

transmission sensor seems to have been the issue. runs a little rough at idle but doesnt die and not start. only other issue was rpm hit zero once but went back up like 10 secs later. this was during a 45 min drive in city so varied speeds 10-65 mph.
