    Check all your earths first, they are the usual source of off electrical problems. Your fuel pump might be a coincidence or that could be the earth under the drivers seat near the ecu, oil in the loom/.ecu red plug or loose or dirty relays by your ecu.

    It sounds like you have an earth wire come loose somewhere causing a short.

    Fuel pump earthing through the indicator wiring? Would seem to be the simplest option from what you've described. finding earth faults is always fun.... not!

    I had this with my old 110 V8. I think I had a Friday afternoon special and at various times previous owners had tried to fix (bodge) various electrical faults. I got so tired of trying to trace faults in a wiring loom that bore no resemblance to the factory wiring diagram that I ended up ripping almost the whole loom out and starting from scratch. It was actually not that difficult, no PCBs, no ECUs, just straight forward copper wiring. About 3 bloody miles of it.:confused:
