Under the hood on the passenger side just above the battery. It's in your Power Distribution Center (PDC) just above your battery. Once you take the lid off, a diagram is shown on the inside of the lid. The auto shutdown relay location will be shown there. It will be identified as "ASD"

i think i found it is that ASD? could that cause backfiring? ive read that it might be the reason for my problem and i have a auto shutdown relay code and hight voltage to the tps so i was thinking if that relay could mess up the voltage to the tps? any opinions?

ASD is correct... I wish I could verify the issues you were having were related to the ASD, but since I haven't had that problem, I can't confirm it. Sorry.

I do not think your issue is with the relay but you can swap it with another one of the same type. Move the A/C in the ASD relay’s place. I would first inspect the cap, rotor, wires, & plugs. Low fuel pressure will also cause back-firing.
