No fuel pump on key on

Key fuel pump does not prime. I hear a relay click under the hood.
If I jump the fuel pump wire underneath the hood pump turns on.
After this I started it for a few seconds and it ran. Turned it off and tried key on again and fuel pump primed.
Then I waited a minute and tried again and no fuel pump on key on just a click under the hood.
Bad relay?
Does anyone have any ideas?

Do you have a Hotwire kit? Get one asap if not. Try cranking the car. There’s a switch that needs oils pressure to start the pump.
