Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo
I checked all the fuses and they're ok, the battery is good. Apparently there was a short circuit somewhere and burned the 100A fuse, I replaced it and it gave me interior lights and control on power windows but when I tried to star the car nothing happened, the switch can be placed at the "ON" position, the dashboard will light like normally would when you're going to start the car, but when you go to the start position nothing happens, the "RrABS" light comes up for a few seconds and it turns off, but no starter noise no engine movement, nothing-nada-zip!!, I know that is an electrical issue, like I said, I checked all the fuses, inside the car and the ones next to the engine and they look ok. Another thing that I noticed is that the radio is not turning on even at the "ON" position. I tried to remove the security fuses if by any chance was the alarm or something, but nothing. I think that the alternator is going bad also, I don't know if that was the main problem, like a severe short or something. I'll apreciate any help.
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.
