As far as the fuel pump, initial prime. There are two ways to ground the fuel pump relay. One is from the computer, another fuel pump ground is the self test connector, proper terminal. The self test connector should be under the hood, passenger side, under starter relay. The proper terminal wire is tan with lite green tracer. Looking at cavity end of self test connector, the proper cavity should be lower right, note the wiring color. With key on, if you use a jumper wire from that cavity to chassis ground, the pump should run, no need to crank it.
I'd probably end up checking voltage and ground at the fuel pump relay when problem is ongoing.
