Make sure all the connections in the socket are clean, which you may have already done. That relay is just one of the things that can go wrong with the pumps running. I presume you also have under the drivers seat the overspeed relay (don't know what year car you're running). That relay can cause the problems you're experiencing as well as the yellow relay from hell, since they work in concert.

To get to the relay under the seat, you need to remove the seat (of course). Four bolts and it's out. Unbolt the relay from it's mount so you can move it toward the rear of the car for easy access short-term. Next time your car won't start, try tapping (or beating on) the relay. It may or may not start after that. Either way, pull the plug harness and clean it well.

If you haven't already done so, spend some time to read all the posts in the sticky "my car won't start". Most everything you need to know is in there somewhere. If still stumped, please do ask questions!
