[DML] Re: Fuel Pump "Buzz"

This is exactly my problem also but mine will not shut off and
continues to run even with the switch off.  I have resorted to
unhooking the battery until I have time to trouble shoot the problem.
 If the hose is crimped or soft will this cause the pump to continue
to run after ignition is off?
