Negative. If as you say the relay "buzzes" when the key is off, something must be wrong elsewhere. IN any case, just to be sure, just swap the fuel pump relay and the EGI relay one for the other and see if the same occurs.
By hte way this is not the first time this oddity occurs...but the issue was not solved or the solution not reported...
Anyway, if this "buzz" continues, I'd make sure there are no debris or sand or salt or moisture that have invaded the bottom of this fuse/relay box.

Ok funny thing the buzzing has just came to a halt. Why i do not know. but if it starts up again i will try switching the two relays around. If that fixes the problem what should i do then?

My check engine light just started blinking at me. This happened after filling the fuel tank. Truck is also running very rough since. 2001 Sportage.

SImple things first: check if fuel filler cap is tight.
If it does not cure the problem, check hoses on top of fuel tank by opening the cover (4 screws) under right rear seat.
In any case, reading the codes would help. Autozone does it for free, I'm told.

My interpretation: some moisture had found a way somewhere and has finally dried off. Then..probably..it might come again.

Car was running very rough, changed plugs and coils now will only turn over, will not start. I know the negative battery cable needs to be replaced, but it will try to start.

Were any codes read before changing all of that? Working blind is costly. Better test than guess. If nothing else was modified (all that was disconneceted was reconnected, coils, IAC valve, hoses...) ...then is there any doubt about quality of parts installed..were coils new or salvage?...
Please provide any other relevant info that would procure a clue...

Is there a sensor that will causes the coils to fire that may be malfunctioning.
