was the bad starter solenoid changed yet ?
what does he want to do with the relay ?
if the solenoid on the starter is bad jumping the relay should not make it start
if it will start up by jumping the relay then the relay could be bad or the ignition switch possibly
if the solenoid is bad the starter needs to be changed to correct this problem

are you sure the battery and the battery cables are clean and tight ? and the battery was tested for cold cranking amps ?
if the starter tested good then the solenoid should be good
here is the schematic of it be sure the IGN A fuse is good and the crank fuse shows 12 volts when holding the key to crank
also see if you pull that relay out if one terminal in the box the relay plugs into shows 12 volts then when you hold the key to crank does another terminal show 12 volts when its held to crank position ?
if there is power to the other fuses but NOT any of those terminals in that fuse box for the relay there is an internal failure inside that fuse box as at least one terminal should be 12 volts all the time and it gets its 12 volts internally inside the fuse box from that big power wire bolted to the under hood fuse box if the big wire and stud that wire is bolted to shows 12 volts and nothing at any terminal for the relay the fuse box is bad
if they confirm this when testing usually a used one can be purchased online or used at the local junk / salvage yard
