Does anyone know the exact location of the ASD (automatic shutdown) relay in a '97 Plymouth Breeze with a 2.0L 4 cyl. Engine and 4-speed automatic transmission? There is no relay marked ASD (or its decoded meaning), based on the label in the plastic cover that snaps on the top of the relay/fuse box which is located immediately in front of the positive battery jumper terminal. Battery jumper terminals are located under the hood because the actual battery is located under the left front fender of the vehicle, and is therefore very difficult to jump. I am getting no system voltage to the center terminal (of 3) on the ignition coil when
cranking the engine.

Thanks for the illustration, but that does not look like what is actually in that car. The illustrated location of the four larger relays in the graphic shows relays where the actual "positive" jumper stud is mounted (and electrically isolated) through sheet metal. There is not enough room for the four relays in that location. Is your illustration from a different year or model of car, or different engine size? This car is a '97 Ply. Breeze with a 2.0L 4 cyl. Engine and 4-speed automatic transmission. What is the model and year of the illustration?

That illustration is for your vehicle. You have to be looking in the wrong place.

You need to remove the air filter assy. To get to the top of the relay box above the positive post. There should be four relays inside that box !Please reply back to let me know you any luck, all thesse pymouth Breeze Power stations are pretty much the same.

Thank you, Wrenchtech and Tonyz60chevy! You were both right. The illustration was kind of misleading because the "positive jumping stud" is not marked in the illustration. Also, the connecting hose, not the air filter cover, was in the way, and hiding the cover over the four relays (starter relay, ASD relay, and two cooling system fan relays). Swapping the ASD relay with the low speed cooling fan relay resulted in instant engine startup (upon cranking the engine)! Thanks again. 2carpros is a great forum for this kind of help!
