Time to change the intank fuel pump, it may last a day or longer. I thought longer and ended up broke down 250 miles from home and had to pay a mechanic to replace instead of doing it myself.

Is it normal for the fuel pump to run when engine is running, It makes a buzzing sound


if the pump runs continuously after the ignition has been turned off, then the pump is malfunctioning. Some after market pumps do make odd sounds, unlike the factory original.

Sounds like a faulty fuel pump to me.

On most vehicles with fuel injection, when you switch ignition ON the engine computer runs a fuel pump for a few seconds to pump initial gas pressure. You can hear it from the gas tank area - it's like a buzzing sound. It's not very loud and the gas pump works only for a second or two after switching the ignition ON, so you may need someone's assistance checking this. If there is no buzzing sound, something might be wrong with the fuel pump or its electrical circuit - bring your vehicle to the garage or a dealer.
