I think what you have going on here is a failing electric fuel pump, this is what they do when they are worn out, it is a rotary pump and the rotor sticks due to worn bearings. To confirm this get a can of spray starting fluid from any auto parts store, next time it won't start spray it into the air intake hose to the engine, if it fires right up you have a bad pump. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, remember to also replace the fuel filter when the pump is replaced. Also check the connector to the fuel pump cutoff safety switch for signs of melting, replace the switch and connector as needed, this is caused by a defective fuel pump drawing excessive current.

change the drive belt on the car if the car has over 40,000 miles and while you have the belt off have the alternator tested as while as the battery you may just have a bad cell in the battery

Your DTR light relay has gone bad, you swap it out with your radiator fan relay, they are the same type of relay. The relay are electronic and is like a voltage regulator so when you do swap the relay out, you may have a check engine light come on indicating your have an issue with your radiator fan until your replace the bad relay.
This is only a quick fix to get your lights to work again and to test to see if it's just the relay which is common to go bad. Once you have narrowed down to what ti issue is, just buy a new relay at the dealer and sorry that yes it cost more then the average relay.
The relay is going to be in your fuse distribution box in the engine bay.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck
