po688 is the code
Expert:  Chris replied 1 month ago.

Ok, that is what I thought. Try swapping the ASD relay with another relay, or get a new one. Look on the inside of the fuse/relay box lid to see where the ASD is located. I also have found the diagnostic procedure for that code. I have placed it in a PDF file in the link below. Click on it to open it up. Hopefully this will help, and let me know how it goes.

any
other ideas
Expert:  Chris replied 1 month ago.
Try this : remove the relay and locate terminals #30 and #87 on the relay. Now get a test light and verify that there is power on cavity #30. If so, then use a small wire and jump cavity #30 to #87 see if it will start.Chris

it will start but will not stay running
Expert:  Chris replied 1 month ago.
But if you install the relay it will not start at all?
Chris
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No sir. Will not start at all
Expert:  Chris replied 1 month ago.
Ok, try this : clear that code, then disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect it. See if that works.Chris

Chris

Expert:  Chris replied 1 month ago.
Tell me this: When you turn on the ignition switch, do you see the little red security light come on for about 3 seconds and then turn off?Chris
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
no
Customer: replied 1 month ago.

Expert:  Chris replied 1 month ago.
Ok, may be a problem with the SKIM Security system. The dealer will connect their WiTech scan tool to the vehicle and see what is going on. Let me know what they say.
