1985 Mercedes 380SE - wont start

I hope someone here can help me out.
A few years back my car wouldnt start, and I knew it was the fuel pump relay,
so I jumpered terminals 7 and 8, the car started right up.
Now, a different but similiar problem, car wont start,
fuel pump not engaging (no sounds). I jumpered terminals 7 and 8,
fuel pump running BUT THIS TIME CAR WILL NOT START like before when jumpered.
I bought a new fuel pump relay, no sounds of fuel pump running with this new relay installed.
I only hear the fuel pump when I remove the relay and jumper 7 and 8.
Last time the car started, now it wont start when it is jumpered.
Any suggestions please ???

Thanks,
James
