Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo

2 Answers

Electrical Problems I have a 1997 isuzu rodeo. I was drving and i had my lights on, and when i went to put my highbeams on, the cars electric system seemed to drain down. My head lights dimmed down and so did my dash lights and overhead and door lights for a few seconds. This also happened when i put wipers on, blinkers, rear defroster, etc. My battery gauge reads below 8 volts when this happens, then shoots back up to over 12 volts. I also noticed that the air bag light would flash suddenly during drving and in park. I did have my suv in 4x4, but do not think this is the problem. Any suggestions? Could the problem be in the wiring?

    I have fixed the problem, i brought to a shop, replaced the alternator, took it home, and the problem came back, so after couple hundred for new alt, it happened to be a new battery. The battery that was in the truck was not big enough for the engine, the battery was for a 4cyl not my 6cyl engine

Have the Izuzu checked for a scan code. It seems like a bad relay or light dimmer switch. the computer seems to be confused by the symptoms.

Where is the ECM relay located on a 98 Isuzu Rodeo


Emission control mechanism or relay is either a vacuum plunger type or a relay switch electrical plug that controls vacuum for the smog. Go to the parts store and look at one and ask where it goes or just trace it. This stops from buying one if you remove the hose or connector and the same problem is still there!

No if the bulbs are out, then you have to change the bulb just like you would in a lamp in your house. Take it to your local autozone and they can help you get the right bulb for your car

96 Isuzu Rodeo electrical problems (Car wont start)


It has to be an electrical connection as you say. The Anti Lock Brake system light is probably just a deprograming of the computer. Due to the electrical problem. Have you check for current at the starter ? Have sombody turn the key as if starting it. Then with a test light check for current at the starter connections. This will give you an idea whre to look for an open circuit or short.

1997 Isuzu rodeo-dashboard light/air cond, heat not blowing


Easy fix. Usually the blower motor resistor gets messed up. (Page 3-8 Haynes manual 47017). The dash light could be a few things. All my bulbs went bad. Little bit of a hassle but no problem with the book.
