Expert:  moparfl replied 8 years ago.
The first thing to check would be to see if you are getting any power to the auto shut down relay this is what powers the coil.

power at 30 &86 terminals at relay connector.what to next
Expert:  moparfl replied 8 years ago.
When you spin the eng over terminal 87 should have power on it.this is the terminal that sends power to the coil.If you dont have power there the relay is bad or the eng computer is bad it controls the ground side of the relay on terminal 85
