Fuel pump running while defender is off

Hi all, I have posted this before, but never got an answer. I try to turn my key a little bit so I can listen to the radio, but when I do this the fuel pump runs (even though the truck is off). Any ideas? I have already pulled out the relays, but it still runs.

If you pulled the relay and it still runs then something is wrong- someone may have straight wired the pump to pos. 1 on the ignition.

hmmm. Do you think that will be an expensive fix for a mechanic?

Why not wire your radio to an "always hot" source? Then the radio will be on and you'll turn it off with the radio switch.
