Re: 96 rodeo not getting power to starter
My first check would be the ignition switch,take a volmeter lead to the solenoid lead and the other to chassis or negative lead of the battery,no volmeter you can use a 12v test light, and have someone turn the key as to start it,you should get a 12v reading,if not the ignition switch is probably bad

Sorry no diagram. But here is how it works. In the start position(Power) the wire goes to the start fuse, from the fuse it goes to the clutch pedal switch. Push the pedal and it goes to the starter relay. On the other end is ground. If it is good it pulls the relay closed. On the closed end is battery power to the starter.
This could be a couple different things causing your No-start condition. first thing I would check (Battery is good) access the starter solenoid, the small single wire connection is the start signal. Test for 12 volts here with DVOM or test light while someone turns the key. If there is 12 volts reading, the starter solenoid is defective. If there isn't 12 volts reading check all the fuses (with test light).
The second item causing the trouble could be the Neutral Safety Switch (Auto Trans) or Clutch Safety Switch (Manuel Trans) These could be open or out of adjustment.
Hope this helps you...
Check for power at the small wire of the solenoid during cranking position on the ignition switch. Could a bad ignition switch( not lock cylinder ) or a starter safety switch either neutral safety or clutch disengage switch, depending on trans type.
Sounds like clutch adjustment or replacement. (Not disengaging the trans fully). Check to make sure you have enough juice in the clutch master reservoir and that there isn't a leak at the clutch slave cylinder first.........
first check fluid level on clutch master .if it is low top it up then check for leack may find leack inside the driver side close to clutch pedal on carpet or on slave cylinder. if the level is fine you may have problem in clutch.
It is not a clutch slave cyl. or clutch master cyl. problem, first check battery and and cables to rule them out if good check to see with test lamp if you have power to start switch at pedal cluster, [key in crank position] If you have power then check with test lamp, [key in crank position and clutch in] for power at starter solonoid, if no power replace switch at clutch pedal if you have power to the starter then you have a bad starter.
my rodeo had the same problem i corrected it by bleeding the slave cylinder. and is located on the driver side on the gearbox you will find it if you follow the line from the master cylinder down to the gearbox and if that helps but happens again it might have to be replaced.
