Sounds like a bad ignition switch.

For starters, was the fuel pump diagnosed as bad or was it replaced as a guess to fix the problem? Joe Cool will be along to ask you if you've been through his "Basics", so that would be a good place to start.

Check your wires, sounds like you have gotten them mixed at on the pump.

Question fuel pump

I was lucky enough to get the car started and drove it home. When I got home the car was running just fine,until i turn the key off.The car will not start again unless I hold the ignition key all the way on.

Sounds like a worn out/out of adjustment lock/switch assembly.

would that cause the car to shut off and only run when the key is turn all the way to the right and held there?

Yes, definately. Both positions of the switch have individual outputs for running power and one of them is not supplying power. It's not that uncommon in Jap cars. Do you have dash lights and accessory power when key is turned to the "on" not the start position?
