Are you absolutely sure it's the fuel pump? Or are you assuming it is the pump because that sounds dangerous .. not to mention how hot a 'runaway fuel pump wire can get. If someone installed something wrong they could be "back-feeding" the run circuit. (seen it happen on a new sound system) If you shut the key off the complete "run" bus inside your fuse box is remaining energized ... if that happens the engine should still run even if the key is removed.
