The ASD relay is controlled by the PCM (computer). The PCM will shut the ASD relay off if it doesn't see a signal from the crankshaft position sensor. Check that sensor and the wiring from the sensor to the PCM.

It is possible that the solenoid on the starter binds when the starter is hot. When you say that the starter was tested, was it tested hot?

Does the starter click when you attempt to start it? When you turn the key, the switch energises a small relay, which in turn energises the solenoid, which in turn applies power to the starter motor.
The solenoid should make an audible sound when it pulls in the plunger.

If you have a second person, one could turn the key, and another could gently hit the solenoid with a rubber or plastic hammer. This worked on a Dodge minivan that I had.

An image of the plunger is available at

You make it sound as though that before you replaced the crank sensor that it WOULD start, but I'm thinking that makes no sense or you would not have done that in the first place. Easter-egging parts to repair vehicles is a costly, often losing proposition. You are better to either:

1. Properly go through the process of determining which of the four necessary components is missing before swapping parts, or

2. Pay a mechanic to do it for you.

You must determine what is causing the no-start condition. There are four components required for an internal combustion engine to work:

1. Fuel
2. Air
3. Spark
4. Compression

If you get a can of starting fluid, you can spray some into the intake while cranking the engine. If it starts, you have 2, 3, and 4. If it doesn't, then you must look deeper.

Air is usually there. It is almost never the problem, so ignore it for the most part unless the vehicle starts with the air cleaner removed.

Spark can be the hardest to determine, especially since vehicles are computer-controlled these days. A failed crank sensor cam sensor/pickup coil, ignition module, ECM, or even the vehicle security system can result in no spark.

Fuel is easier to determine, since you can listen for the fuel pump to dun, and can usually check for fuel at the fuel rail. However, there is the possibility that the ECM isn't firing the fuel injectors, so even with the fuel right up to the engine, that is no guarantee of fuel to the cylinders.

For these reasons, if you are not equipped a fairly good knowledge of modern engine controls, and don't have the equipment to test and monitor the engine systems, you may well get off cheaper to have a mechanic do the work for you.
