Fuel pump help

Hey guys I have a problem with my holley electric blue fuel pump. The pump is pretty much brand new and works fine when i turn the key to ignition when the engine is cold. Once I run the engine for 10 minutes or however long and shut the car off then go to turn it back on, the pump won't come on!! It is like as soon as the the engine heats up then is shut off and then the key is turned back into ignition the pump doesn't come on. Any suggestion of what this could be??

Thanks,
Keith

I gave up on Holley blue pumps years ago. If they don't leak, they soon crap out on ya.

No regulator required for most carbs. This is the only fuel pump under $100 that is designed to run "dead head" full time. OEM/Military quality.
More than enough working flow capacity for any street/strip SBC.

A couple of questions.

Where is the pump mounted, up front, or back by the tank?

What size wire are you running to it?

I take it you are running key on power to it, from the ignition switch.

If it is back by the tank, and you are running small diameter wire to it, it could be heating up, from too much resistance.
