Its almost never that but in the 1 and a million chance that it is you have about two choices. Get a new/used pcm OR hook up a push button switch so you can manually energize the relay. Leave them on for about 1 minute tops and then crank. You really need a volt meter (15.00 wal mart special) because even your new relay could have been a bad one.

The two large plugs on the relay. One should have at least 12v all the time since its hooked straight to the batterys. The other large plug should have minimum of 11v when you turn the key to the key all the way on engine off position. If you did it this way and you are only getting 3v then that relay is toast.

Good luck I think the napa is #109? Any relay at this point will be good for you. You can always beef it up later down the road. You just got to get it working first.
