Go rent a fuel pressure gauge an check pressure, it should be consistent. Bot 50-60lb range. Sounds like pressure dropping in fuel one. Start there.

I put a new fuel pump in the mustang and its about 50-60 psi car stays on while i move the ignition key to on and off position but once i leave it on the one position itll turn off after 2 seconds.

You mean wen you let go of key? Another thing it might be than is ignition switch. When you turn key on and off you actuate a ignition box under your dash on the steering column.

Most probably the ignition switch is faulty. Same thing happened to my Mustang. Without doing any diagnostic work, you can try it since it's cheap.

Yes aslong as i move the key to on and off position it stays on and when i leave it on the on position it shuts rite off after two seconds and no anti theft light turns on at all even when i put the key foward.
