Question Fuel pump relay?

My new OVP relay that I ordered from the site came in today and my problem still exists. My fuel pumps cut off and the engine dies. I can't say that it has a pattern to it, %70 of the time it will start and run for about two minutes and then the fuel pumps cut off. For two months it would not start due to this, but the other day it started and ran fine enough for me to drive it around my neighborhood. They next day, no fuel pumps. I believe they are the original pumps and quite audible, believe they need replacing, but I don't think that that is the current problem. My old OVP rattled when I shook it so I replaced it. There was some corrosion on the old OVP so is it possible that my fuel pump relay needs replacing as well due to corrosion? They look in good condition.(002 545 16 05 & 002 545 18 05) Is there something that I am missing? '83 BMW 733i was totalled by a Cadillac last week and the rental car is a Pontiac!
