With relay off wiring harness 12 volts turn key on jumps to 10 volts

pull the relay and jump power at the relay connector, and see what happens, you could also bench test the relay and check the resitance is would tell you if you have bad contacts in the relay, does you mazada have fuel interia switch?

no switch, took old relay cover off, seemed to be working, maybe points worn a little, replaced with new relay, pickup ran for two blocks then dyed, won't start, thinking of putting fuel pump on toggle switch

check your ground side of the ciruit see if you cant take a volts meter put positve lead on power and put negative lead on the fuel pump circuit ground, cause if you have 12 volts at the pump it should work but if you have a bad ground it wont work, also make sure u r on the actural power wire for the pump and not the fuel level sender, also take in mind the engine has to be cranking for you to test for power at the pump the computer has to see engine speed before it turns on the fuel pump.

sounds like you have a ground issue. look for a croded or broke ground
