Question about 1994 Isuzu Trooper
This is a problem common to all vehicles with a solenoid operated starter. That's the little guy mounted on the outside where the heavy batt cable attaches.
As the other answer suggests, you may have low starting current ie flat battery, but I suggest you check the quality of your earth/ground cable from the batt neg post to the chassis and chassis to engine heavy strap if you have one. This is because if the ground is poor, all the juice is trying to get a ground through the wiring harness and this can lead to a massive electrical burn up.
If you use jump leads, connect the ground cable direct to the engine block on a solid part, if it starts right up, check the neg cables as above. Make sure you use serious jump leads 'cos little diddy ones won't pass any current anyway. Check everything carefully before putting hand in wallet.

Clicking from te starter is normally associated with a weak battery. Do you get the clicking sound when you jump start it too? Try that and if you do not hear that clicking sound,.. charge up your existing or get a new battery..It should be note that if your battery is relatively new and drained, you may have a problem with your charging system ... Hope that helps you..
