So I've since then moved the fuel pump wire to the switched source that would normally trigger the relay, but I left the switch there so if that fucks up for some reason I can always switch it back. I really fail to understand how these relays work because it literally has to be the 8 pin bullshit for it to work.

Just another update, turns out the junction box under the hood was messed up. I spent a while taking it apart, cleaning all the contacts, and reassembling it and have had zero issues ever since. Will probably make an updated video at some point.
