Check all the cables coming off your battery terminals and especially to and off the starter. Try jumping the fuel pump and or ECM. I wouldn't replace it yet. The connections to the fuse box and the fuses are known problems. Get yourself a Bentley's manual. It has comprehensive test procedures for the main relay, injectors, etc.
