Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Dodge Caravan 2.4L 4cyl. It will occasionally just stall out while driving. No hesitation or bucking occurs prior. I then pull over and am able to immediately start it right back up like nothing ever happened. It might not do it again for days, although I have had it happen a couple times in 1 day. I read online that it may be an ASD (Auto Shut Down) relay. Does this van with this size engine have an ASD relay, and if so, where is it located? I dont have a wiring diagram or repair manual for the van. Thanks and I look forward to hearing back.

    Hi no_signal_sw. thanks for the quick response. unfortunately the picture you posted does not show up here. I was also told that I should probably replace the fuel pump relay as well as this relay may be faulty as well. Are both these relays the exact same? When I do a search for the fuel pump relay at online auto parts stores, replacements do come up. however nothing comes up for the ASD relay. I figure for 12 bucks a piece its probably a good place to start to get this problem fixed. Any ideas? Thanks!

It does have an ASD relay. It will be in the power distribution center under your hood. Here is a picture of the fuse box with the ASD relay. Hope this helps, PLEASE RATE!!! :)) James BoothI have a 1998 Dodge - 2008-08-10_230302_shot0571.jpg

1998 dodge caravan hesitation at idle speed

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
