Question about Toyota Camry
First test the ignition coil- disconnect the wire that connects the coil to the distributor from the distributor side. now hold the end of the wore a fraction of an inch from a part of the frame and have someone turn the key to the "star"t position. if the ignition coil is good, it should throw a spark (ark) when turning the key. if the ignitoon coil sucessfully sparks, then the problem lies in the distributor, spark plugs or spark plug wires.
examine your distributor cap rotor for wear, and examine your spark plug gap ends for discoloration (white or black) and/or oily build-up. if you are unsure about the distributor cap and/or spark plugs, then replace them. if this does not fix it, then try replacing your spark plug wires.
i would suggest that you purchsae a "chilton's" or "haynes" repair manual for your vehicle at a local auto parts store. these type of repair manuals have walk-through's and/or pictures of all the diagnostic tequniques which i have just described.

If the relay is working fine and you checked it the correct way, then there is a blown fuse or a bad connection in the circuit with either the positive side or negative side of the circuit in the harness.

From what i've seen over the years with the Chryslers i've encountered. Your describing to the "T" what appears to be a bad Crank Sensor. I will bet money that if you replace the crank sensor it will solve your problem. BUT...Also know that a bad fuel pump can do exactly what you describe in your statement. Once the pump get hot it gets to acting stupid, but yet again so can the Crank Sensor. Still, my money is on the Crank Sensor.

Is there a check engine light on? Did car crank with old battery or you just replaced to see if would start?
