Hi bazi,
sorry, didn't see this till this morning. Yes, you can move the relays around as long as they are the same part number, should be printed on the top of each one.
Did the coil ohm out? were you able to test it. My 99 jeep sport lost its coil for no reason, just one day wouldn't start, just replaced it.
If the auto shutdown has happened there are a few things that make that happen, like the cam sensor etc.. I will go look at the fuse box on my 93 grand and check what all is in there.
be back soon

    Ok, just checked em, the starter and the abs are the exact same relay, I would switch with the one for the starter first, that would test the relay if the car still turns, the lack of spark is the key here, so lets see what happens,
    I am around all day and will reply back sooner to you if that fails..
    talk soon.

Find relay switch for coil


The only relay I see that wire connected to is the auto shutdown relay. Below is a picture of the wiring diagram at the coils, the location of the box that the relay is located at (the power distribution center) & a fuse layout digram for the fuse box. Where the red arrow is, that's the auto shutdown relay and where the 2 yellow arrows are, is the main fuse for that relay you may want to check as well. Hope this helps.

It is the Auto Shutdown Relay located in the power distribution center under the hood, the black box with all the fuses and relays. Replace the relay, and check all the 30amp and 50 amp fuses. You might try removing the relay and reinstalling it first, to see if it will reset.

Car cranks but won't start. Diagnostic code says


I changed all the parts I mentioned and finally I decided to try the crank shaft sensor and if that didn't work I was going to replace the cam shaft sensor. Luckily the crank shaft sensor worked but only after I replaced all the other parts. But at least now it finally started.

Thsank you.
