your pin numbers may be wrong, pins 30 and 87 are the LOAD side and you should have power on only 1 pin (either 30 OR 87) pins 85 and 86 control the relay and need ground on 1 and power on the other, BUT in any case have you tried providing power directly to the small solenoid wire on the starter it's easiest to simply jump the relay the 2 LARGER pins are for the starter so jumping the 2 LARGER pins at the starter relay should make the starter operate IF NOT then replace the starter, starter failure is quite common and on a 9 year old car it's not unheard of
