Try the "ASD" relay. There are two located in the engine compartment, on the drivers side, on the firewall. There will be 2 small aluminum relays side by side. Wait until the car stalls again, then go under hood and rap on the two relays with a screwdriver end or some sort. If it is a faulty relay, the car should start right away. It took us a long time to figure this one out. The dealers couldnt even figure it out. Also, if it is the relays, you can only get them from a dodge dealer. They are only $12.00 email me & let me know the outcome. myangelmooyahoo.com

Ok.. Seems that my car is now running but for how long. Ughhhh.
The only prob I seem to have now is my car smells like gas when driving. Hmmm. Wonder what could of happened at the shop the other day. Now I have to call Meineke AGAIN to see why I'm getting that smell.. They gave my husband a list of things that needed replacing but he didnt write it down. Ughhhh
The first thing they did was replace starter/starter relay and that was 410.00. A year later and they just did the fuel pump relay and had to do diagnostics twice.. at 80.00 a pop. WTH. The total for the fix the other day was 240.00 and included the tow charge to get it there.. Not too bad.
I'm tired of spending money on this car but can't afford a new one. Grrr.

I have the same question. First off, I learned that I had an ASD relay going out by reading these forums, so thank you everybody for sharing your problems and fixes. My experience: For the last year, the car would sometimes refuse to start until I popped the hood and tapped on those relays, then it will fire right up. In the last week it's died on me twice while running, once at a red light, and once while I was getting ready to make a left hand turn. So either the problem is getting worse, or the car is developing a new problem.
Now I'm ready to change the ASD relay after the dealership charged me 60 bucks for it! grrr Which of the three relay boxes on the driverside firewall is the ASD relay?

I have the same problem. did you ever get a solution?

About two months ago I took my '96 Avenger to the garage for plugs, wires and distributor. Seems when we got alot of rain it wouldn't start at all for a few days til it dried out. Tune up completed, but now I have another problem that I didn't have before - stalling.
Car runs great for a little while after the first time I start it up for the day, but after awhile it seems to idle like hell at traffic lights and stops. Sometimes it will even shut off if I am just coasting slowly, like in a parking lot. Took it back to the garage, had the TPS replaced, no luck. Went and got a MAP sensor, that isn't it either. It has a rebuilt transmission, and sometimes won't shift properly, so I have to feather the gas when I pull out. Also tried gumout and some stp fuel treatment after the last few fill ups, seemed to fix the problem temporarily.
This is aggravating... any ideas?

OK! 2000 Dodge Avenger es. 68000 miles. Car cranks but will not start. New Distributor(cam sensor), Crank Sensor, and coolant temp sensor. I also tried tapping the asd relay. I am to the point that I have no ideas left. I wish I could get this car running so that I can trade it in for a higher value. just paid it off in feb.
#113 of 148 2000 avenger stalling problems
Oct 12, 2010 (12:10 pm)
I have a 2000 Dodge Avenger that has been stalling (more frequently it seems) while Im driving. While I am driving my tach drops down to zero, power seems to be on, engine seems to be on then all the warning lights flickers then it dies. After about more then 5 to10 minutes it will start up again. It may stay running or it wil stall out again in a matter of minutes. It seems to do it more when I have my headlights on. And once it dies I still have headlights and radio. My check engine light was on due to my "gas cap and emissions". Could it be the ERG valve or ASD Relay? I don't know anymore. Anyone have any comment or suggestions? It would be greatly appreciated.
