SOURCE: fuel pump stops running
HI. this could be a ecm issue. i would take this vehicle in for a look at the fuel pump wires and to check out the ecm as well. these are unusual issues that you are experiencing.
Possible electrical short.

I think the relay you have been waking up is the starter solenoid. If so, these have heavy copper bars that carry the current for the starter that can be in the range of 120-180 amperes, in other words, a bunch. These can decay (they 'burn' developing spikes of copper that are blown away when the starter draws current) over time and I too have whacked them to get momentary contact too but it will likely need replacement. If it is integrated with the starter, the starter will have to be replaced since I doubt if parts are available to replace the contacts; they once were, I've done it but it has been decades since then.

SOURCE: I just got a 1991
first check ignition:
extract spark, connect it (make sure it is grounded)
ask someone to start the engine and watch if there is electrical discharge
(do not touch it during this procedure! high voltage hazard! just watch)
second, check fuel system:
try to start engine several times, then extract spark and check if it smells with fuel
if both a ok - then try to "dry" sparks, extract all of them and warm up electrodes with lighter (until the metal become red), before inserting sparks - "vent" engine.. just try to start it for 20-30 seconds without sparks. Then try to start engine once more!

SOURCE: Truck isn't starting. Starter
you have to have 12.4 volts showing on your battery to even attempt to start your car,, you need to completely charge the battery , ( if you have a walmart near you, they will not only charge it for you, but they run a Load test , which tells how the battery holds up under a Load , such as when trying to start the vehicle,, ) I would venture to say that you have a bad battery ,, it only take one bad cell to make it pretty much worthless, Plus the alternator is being over worked trying to charge it as it runs the car for you after starting,, ( note, never disconnect the battery when the car is running to check to see if the alternator is working, that will result in bad problems , such as computer stoppage) once your sure you have a fully charged, good battery in place, use a volt meter to check ,, start the vehicle and place the meter probe's on the battery terminals,, you should get a reading of no less than 13.5 volts, and should see that up to 14.5 volts on the meter, if you do the alternator is doing its job.
