ASD relay is the relay. Its coil is controlled by an output of the PCM.
I do believe that it came out in a recent discussion that the PCM shuts the ASD relay off in the run position until it detects that the engine is actually running. Just like the fuel pump is turned on for a second or 2 when you first go to Run, it only keeps the ASD relay energized for that same time period. So getting no voltage to the coils may be normal under the conditions you're checking.
And when you say you get 0.2 volts at the coil, you mean from the common wire of the coils to chassis/engine ground, right? The coils work by having +12 volts on the one wire, and the other wire getting pulled to ground by the PCM.
You really should download the FSM and look at the schematics to try to troubleshoot this.
