Always verify the easy to do, First using a small diameter phillips head screw driver, remove a spark plug wire and put the screwdriver up inside of the metal contact where the plug normally would make its connection. Place the screw driver around an inch away from the valve cover or any other ground. While not touching the screw driver crank the engine over and have a friend look for spark jumping from the screw driver to the grounded part. If indeed spark is present verify fuel level. Regardless of what the gauge says, put 5 gallons in the vehicle. Very easy to do (not so cheap to do now days) But fuel gauges read incorrectly all the time. If you have spark and it doesn't run after adding fuel we will have to verify its getting fuel. Fuel pump would be the next thing but lets verify spark to the the engine first. If indeed you do, take a second to pull a plug out and check its condtion.

Surely sounds like a low voltage issue. Relays commonly flash between open and closed when the power drops below 10 volts. Also other indicators in your descrp. explain the same. I would suggest giving the battery a good charge. Also if you can get your hands on a multi-meter and verify voltage that would be good. You can get one at walmart for around 10 bucks. Volts DC is what you want. Besides if you get it you'll def find other uses for it. Let me know if you need farther help

Make sure you have the plug wires on the correct plug. Check the
ignition timming to make sure it is correct. After running for a few
minutes pull the pluggs to see whitch cylinders are running rich. The
fuel pressure and volume need to be tested.

Additionally, try checking the power transistor. I will send the test. Also make sure the coil has a good ground...
Hope this helps; keep us updated.
