Thread: Asd relay making noise/skis indicator light on

    Default Asd relay making noise/skis indicator light on

    Hey guys,

    So I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 4.0 I-6 which was working perfectly find till last night. So last night, I went to Jack in the Box like at midnight and I noticed that my car kinda hesitated to start but I did make anything of it. I figured the positive or negative cable might have gotten loose on my battery, since the battery is less than a year old and still brand new, paid about $200 for it. So this morning when heading out to work, when I crank the vehicle to start, it started fine, but it turn off like if my battery had died, but not completely of course, since the inside lights would turn on and gauges. So I figured no, problem ill jump started it and check the battery at a local shop, but that’s when everything went down hill.

    I notice that im getting my key symbol on my gauges Skis Indicator, like if its not recognazing my key and secondly i notice that the fuse box next to the battery was making a noise. I open it and the ASD relay is making a loud noise. It will turn over, but won't fire. The gauges and lights all come on, but show nothing. Shows I'm on empty, which I know there is a half tank.

    Anyone have any idea how to repair this!!
    Thank you in Advance!!

    i think the first thing to do is check the battery voltage, make sure all your terminals are clean. try your second key. welcome to ju too!! sometimes you can find more information by searching

    I think you forgot to mention some important details, such as attempting to jumpstart with reversed polarity:

    Connected Jumper Cables Wrong

    I got the jumper cables and connected the neg. & posi. in the auto (ford focus 01) I was using to start my jeep, and please keep in mind that the battery was old as hell and there were no symbols or signs on the battery or cables stating which was the neg or posi. So when I went to connect the other end of the jumper cables to my jeep I connected the negative cable first and then when I try to connect the positive cable I notice something was wrong when it started MELTING my positive post. I was like oh $hittttt….i unplugged it with in a second or two and changed the jumper cables on the focus and connected it again on my battery, so it seem all good, I figured it would start on the 1st try right….lol, so when I tried cranking my jeep with would just cracking but it wont started now.

    IM THINKING I MIGHT HAVE FRIED SOMETHING SINCE I CONNECTED JUMPER CABLES INCORRECTLY ON THE FOCUS BATTERY.

    Does anyone have any idea if I might have burn a fuse out or killed my starter? Any ideas would help me out guys.
