Question about Cars & Trucks
When the temp outside gets below 40, my car won't start without pumping the gas pedal while cranking the engine. It dies once or twice and then it'll stay running. I pump it four times when its over 40 and it stays running the first time i turn it on.
What is your year--make--model--engine size? On a cold engine, you can try cycling the key on and off several times before you crank it, see if it helps? By doing that, your priming the fuel system.
Usually electric fuel pumps are in the gas tank, but, without year--make--model, I can't look up any info.

You are looking for the constant control relay module- ( CCRM ) see below. The pump will be located inside the fuel tank.Most of the time , its the pump and not the relay but, it wouldn't hurt to check the relay out. Teh relay is housed in the CCRM. Its located behind the engine coolant reservoir.

Hello, I would assume this is your fuel pump inside your tank. I would first however do some basics like a general tuneup. For starters I would replace your spark plugs and wires, rotary cap and button and check your fuses. Run some injector cleaner through your system. You know quick simple cheap things before you get to the fuel pump inside the gas tank which can be kinda expensive. The warm up then dies can be caused by, "blownout or fouled," spark plugs. I hope this gives you a general direction in which to go. A sidenote is that coil packs do not normally run an igntion code and I for one do not like them becuase they are expensive.

The only way the pump will run is if it has a live 12v dc supply to one side and an earth return to the other.
Most cars have the earth side of the pump grounded down to the chassis so I would go for the fact that you have a short on the loom or a faulty ignition barrel.
An auto electrician would isolate the pump wiring to see where the feed was coming from then repair the fault
