Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.

.

I wouldn't be able to give you any instructions or diagrams over the phone. However, do you have voltage to the ASD relay?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
We have a 1992 Dakota excab 318 Mag that was ran extremely hot and has not been cranked in over 8mths. Now that I've decided to fix it I can't get any power to the coil. We replaced the Cam sensor and the crank sensor and the ignition sw. we Repaired the broken 3 red & white wires under the fuse block 1 goes to the ASO relay 1 to fuel pump relay and one going to the AutoShutdown fuse then found 2 blue & yellow wires that were corroded so repaired them. They went to the auto shut off relay and the other to fuel pump relay. Now we have 2 grey wires 1 from the A/C Clutch relay and the other from the A/C clutch fuse connect to a black wire from the starter relay. The 3 wires twist together and connect to what looks like a mini female radio antenna plug that connects to nothing. I cant find what should look like the male antenna plug.
Dodge Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 2 years ago

So it sounds like there is not power to the ASD relay? The 3 wires that are in a coax looking connector should go to a ground off the battery, if that is what I am thinking you mean. The neg terminal should have a female coaxial looking connector.

We have a constant 12v on the red & white wire going to pin 30 of the ASO relay . When we turn the key on we have 12v on all contacts except pin87 on ASO
Dodge Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I see, thanks. Does the ECM have a good ground to it?

.

  • Terminal number 85 is grounded by the Engine Controller.

It only goes to pin 80
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It say pin 60 not 80 is the highest pin I have
Dodge Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 2 years ago

What about 87, like you said?

  • Terminal number 87 is connected (a circuit is formed) to terminal 30 in the energized (ON) position. Terminal number 87 then supplies battery voltage to the component being operated.

iM CONFUSED. Do youwant me to check pin 87 of the OSO continuity to ground with the key on?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
pin 87n of ASO to ground shows continuity(good ground) with key on and off
Dodge Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Not sure what the OSO or ASO though but on the Auto shut down relay, (ASD).

.

The relay terminal numbers can be found on the bottom of the relay:

  • Terminal number 30 is connected to battery voltage and can be switched or B + (hot) at all times. ^ Terminal number 87A is connected (a circuit is formed) to terminal 30 in the de-energized (normally OFF) position.
  • Terminal number 87 is connected (a circuit is formed) to terminal 30 in the energized (ON) position. Terminal number 87 then supplies battery voltage to the component being operated.
  • Terminal number 86 is connected to a switched (+) power source.
  • Terminal number 85 is grounded by the Engine Controller.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Do you have an incandescent test light?

Does the engine light do a bulb check when the key is first turned on and go out?

Does the voltmeter come up with the key on or stay down?
