The auto shut down (ASD) relay is located on the fender under the hood.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I did find the ASD relay and found it in a n/o position I by-passed the relay and it switched on a control to the EGR valve and I still have no spark, any ideas?
Expert:  brownjeff replied 7 years ago.
I see you replaced the distributor......did you also replace the crank sensor?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
no i didnt replace the crank sensor
Expert:  brownjeff replied 7 years ago.
There are only a few things that control the spark.....the distributor, crank sensor, and computer. With the distributor being replaced I suggest doing the crank sensor next.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
why would we get no error codes when scanning it comes up o codes
Expert:  brownjeff replied 7 years ago.
Many times you wont get a code when the sensor goes or the computer is failing. If you have a scan tool you can watch the out put of the sensor to see if it is working.
