Car won't crank unless I pull the ASCD relay

My car has 180000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The ASCD relay is for the cruise control only and should not cause the vehicle to not crank in any way. You may need to have the relay box checked to see if you have corrosion in the connections. If you need to have the cranking issue diagnosed, a certified mechanic from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to pinpoint the fault and suggest the appropriate repairs. They can also take a look at the ASCD relay to see if there is any malfunction within the cruise control system.
