Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. It could easily be a wire issue, as the connection at the fuel pump does corrode. What is more likely, however, is you probably have a bad CIRCUIT OPENING relay. This relay is responsible for powering up the fuel pump circuit. What you need to do here is check the solid BLUE wire at the fuel pump for power when it is not starting. If there is no power, I would suspect that the Circuit Opening relay is not closing and sending power to the fuel pump wire connector. The circuit opening relay on this vehicle is under the dashboard, directly below the instrument cluster.
