    Check your wiring, normally when the pump is unpowered and you try to start it, it just cranks.

    I think it might be that, because the fule pump wire is yellow with a green stripe and theres two. I cut one and wired it up.. Im thnking mabey im suposto use both?

    Where did you splice into the hot wire? At the tank, or at the ECU? Also, how did you wire the switch up?

    i spliced it at the ecu, i cut the one wire, then ran speaker wire to lengthen it to place it somewhere, then i connected it to the switch..

    Id start by replacin the speaker wire with some good insulated electrical wire. Im not sure what size the factory wire is, but Im guessin its like 16 gauge or so. Id use the same gauge to run to and from the switch. I highly doubt that whats causin the smoke, but its just a good idea change that wire.

    I'm thinking you should probably not touch anything electrical from now on.

    Did you even test the wires with a test light or multimeter to see which one received power with the key on? it's difficult to decypher but it sounds like you ran +12v into the chassis and burned something up. i don't understand why you ran a wire all the way out to the fuel pump in the first place though. Their are other wires near the ecu and dash at the front of the vehicle that you could put a switch in between, and use to prevent the car from being started.
