    Let's start from the beginning. Did you have the fuel pump replaced because the engine light was on? If so, do you know what fault code was stored in the computer at that time. Also, and more important, what code is currently causing the light to come on . There are a lot of different faults which will all set different fault codes and turn the engine light on. If you can tell me what codes is current now I can try and tell you what may be wrong.
