Your autoenable settings are wrong.

Yes. Whenever I've seen this [with routers and ASAs] it's been that the 
autoenable setting in .cloginrc is wrong. RANCID is waiting for the '>' 
prompt, but because the credentials you've told it to use are auto-enabled, 
it never sees a '>' [only a '#'] so it times out.]
