Yeah that's what I think is happening too. Somewhere in the car there has to be a big short. I just don't understand why the fuel pump would be involved because I think it is controlled from the main harness which I just replaced. I have kind of made up my mind to look for an Sti shell without a motor or trans and swap it. My car needs some body work, as well as a fair amount of interior replacement. It will be easier this way in the long run.
