Well from tonight’s findings. The dme relay is working properly. If you pull the relay the fuel pump and throttle body quit making noise. Plugging it back in kicks them on. IF you pull the plug out of the ecu and plug it back in. They both stop and will not act up again until the car will not start. SO something IS sending a signal to the dme relay while the car is off. Unplugging the power side and replugging STOPS whatever is causing the issue. I did this then pulled the dme relay back out to see if it would click. It did not. Still at a loss.

EDIT: after a little more research. Could this intermittent issue be a bad IVM?
