Ive changed crank, cam, rotor, bug, plugs, wires, brandnew battery, cleaned the ground from computer to firewall.
I just tried to jump the asd relay by wrapping a wire around pin 85 only. I plugged the relay in. Turned ignition on. Then tried to ground out the wire of pin 85 to a ground. It sparked and blew a 30amp engine crank fuse. So i tried it again and it blew the same fuse again.
My understanding if u ground out the pin 85 that it will bypass the asd and make my engine run. But this case i touch it to a ground and it acts like pin 85 is a hot ...
Fuel pressure and injector pulse OK? If so, check pcm coil driver

I jumped the asd pin 85 by wrapping a wire only aroind it. Plugged the relay back in and turned the ignition on. Then tried grounding pin 85 like i was told and it sparked like it was a hot wire. Blew a cranking fuse. Tried it again blew the same fuse..

Does the fuse still blow when the ASD relay is put in place and when you crank it over?
