    i check the fuse for the pump, still no power. my next step was to run a wire from the battery to the relay to see if i hear the pump come on.

    Trace wiring back to source. Keep in mind that wiring generally does not go bad, usually it's a problem at a connector where wire is crimped that deteriorates or the actual pin in the socket that goes bad. I suggest you get a schematic to see where the wire originates and what it goes to along the way. Its late...going 10 7 on this till am. later

Don't forget to check for a good ground at the pump, I've seen this problem pay for a new fuel pump more than once.

The relay to the window can be blown or what ever power source going to the fuel pump.If you hooked this up the wrong way to a lack of power or to much power to the pump you may have burned out the pump if not the switch is cheap and it broke.

Car cuts cuts off then won't start 1984 Camaro Berlinetta

Sounds like a fuel pump. What engine do you have? Carb or Fuel injection? I know you said you spray carb cleaner in the carb but a throttle body kind of looks like a carb. The first thing I would try would be a fuel filter. 1984 camaro right?
