Swap the fuel pump relay with a known good one, either you have a solder
joint failing in the relay or one of the connections under the fuse box to
the fuel pump relay is intermitent (I hate that word).

If the known good relay works then your FPR is gonzo, give it a Phil Payne
heave into the nearest body of water.
