    You have a short circuit in the fuel pump electrical circuit. Diagnosing a short circuit can be difficult so I suggest having a shop do this for you. Here are some to call: http://repairpal.com/directory?address=27596&car_bran...

    Your problem may be coming from the fuel pump sending unit I had that same exact problem with my 95 SS, When you changed the pump did any of those wires going to the fuel pump look burnt?
