1997 Isuzu Rodeo Clicks But Won't Start

I have had the battery ends replaced, I have had the battery replaced. The vehicle worked fine all day yesterday. However, after running several errands within a 20 mile radius, I reached my last stop, turned off the vehicle and when I went back to start it, it wouldn't. The radio, lights, etc. still come on but when I try to start it, it will "click" one time and not start. Is it possible this could be a fuse?

Any and all information will be helpful.

Thank you.

    No, I can't see where the battery cable is connected to the solenoid. I think it is somewhere near the driver's side front tire because I had work done to the solenoid before. Do you know if there are any fuses I can check?

Hi..I have a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo also...The problem is you need to replace the starter or rebuild it...It's best to just buy a new starter..Trust me on this..I had the same problem and did everything you did and more..From the research I had to go thru it's just best to buy a new one with a warranty..Just some advice if you do this yourself..The down y pipe on the exhust will have to be removed to do so..you must spray the bolts with wd-40 or pb blaster and let it soak over night...If not you will pull your arm out of it's socket trying..Also jacking the car up until the front driver side wheels are way up of the ground, This will give you a little more room to use a breaker bar to pop the nuts loose..I hope this helps you..Good Luck!!

If it "clicks" it may be like the starter solenoid is trying to work but does not. Can you see where the battery cable is connected?

    Not aware of the correct fuse but if the solenoid is clicking it is getting by the fuse. I'm pretty sure it's a solenoid or possibly starter problem.

Ignition clicks but doesn't turn over


If you just replaced the battery then my guess is that you have a bad alternator. Your fresh battery could hold the charge for a couple days without being charged but now it's dead. Try charging the battery (via jumper cables or a battery charger). If the car starts up after the charge then you probably need a new alternator. You can verify this by checking the voltage across the battery after you start the car. The voltage should be more than 13.5 volts, if it's any less than the alternator isn't charging the battery. Good luck!

1995 Isuzu Rodeo will not start- just clicks. Would turn over after several clicks but now will not turn over at all.


you need to jump start your battery. The battery will need to be tested to see if it can hold a charge and supply enough amps to power your truck. Check for clean and tight connections to battery posts.

Get a Beck Arnley alternator. The auto-zone, Napa etc. alternators are a problem for Isuzu's. I worked at a dealership and a lot of them came in for this problem. If you still have the original have it rebuilt. Check yellow pages.
