Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo

96 Isuzu Rodeo electrical problems (Car wont start)

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.

Check engine fuse on 1999 Isuzu Rodeo


The Isuzu's have lots of relays. Most of them carry the same value, so change one for the other and see if that solves the problem. If it does buy another relay. But checking the two main fuses takes a continuity tester or test light.

My 1997 isuzu rodeo wont start. i checked the battery and it has a good charge so its not that and when i turn the key the dash lights up and everything but i dont even hear a click. when i turn the key...


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good, on both ends, not just at the battery. I looked at info for 4 cylinder engine. You can see the two fuses, not only check the fuses, use a test light and check voltage at fuse circuit. The main fuse is hot all the time. The starter fuse goes hot with key in start position, so you need a helper to turn the key while you check for voltage at the fuse. At the starter motor, two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position and is wired through clutch switch and starter relay. The starter motor grounds through the engine block. If good voltage and ground circuits at the starter motor and no action, have to check starter motor and make sure the engine isn't seized. Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.

I turn the key and the car goes dead. 1994 rodeo.


It does sound as if the battery is dead. If you are sure your battery is good, you may have a short in the starting circuit.

2000 isuzu Rodeo wont start


Could be your neutral safety switch, or it's not all the way in park. Broken or loose wires in the starting circuit. Inspect all wires and connectors at the battery, starter solenoid, and ignition switch. Or your starter pinion is jammed in the ring gear. Remove starter and inspect. Last but not least, your engine is seized. You don't want that one. Good luck.
