Default 90 Civic wont crank

Greetings JDM folk!
My car hasn't been starting in this cold weather we've been having lately. The starter won't even click or turn over, but there's plenty of battery power. I have discovered that If I run a hair dryer inside the car, on the floor, pointed up under the dash for about 5 min the car will then crank and start. Any ideas?

Heres a few details:
1990 Honda Civic Hatch
1.5L 4spd manual
newer battery
The NSS is bypassed(I did this thinking this was the propblem, still didnt help)

Sometimes during the summer, (this may or may not be related) I have to cycle the key a bunch of times to get the fuel pump to run.

Thanks for taking a look at my post!

Sounds like a main relay issue.

I put a new main relay in. The car still wont start on random freezing temps, and sometimes it will. It's very tempermental. Back to using the hair dryer until I get any other ideas. Also, I noticed that I am hearing a single click under the dash, when i turn the key. Would that be the relay? If so, something, from that point on to the starter is going bad, but I don't know whats in line next after the relay.
