Sounds like there is a problem with wiring to the fuel pump or with the PCM. I would say take this to a mechanic to find out what is causing it to pull too much amperage.

ok. ive had this problem. check your wiring all over to make sure there is no bare wires. my old car right before i sold it to my friend did this. we had to take the wiring harness off and redo it. took it a part, taped all of the wiring because there were alot of wires bare. so i would check that 1st
