The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

SOURCE: 4x4 quit working

Jack up the rear wheels and put it on jack stands. Have someone get in it and put it in 4wd and drive. Release the brake. Rear wheels are spinning only right. Don't get under it but look under it and see if the front driveshaft is spinning. If the shaft is spinning but the wheels aren't it is likely a bad front axle actuator. If the front shaft isn't spinning it is a transfercase problem.

SOURCE: when pushing '4wd' button to engage 4wd, light

People with 4wd vehicles do not follow the advice of the owners manual,every 3 months they have to activate the 4wd system or the actuators are going to get stuck when you really need them. solution, you will need an assistant if the car is in the air even better, if you trust you mechanic ask him to do this for you. with a rubber hammer hit(tap) the actuator the one in the front differential and the one in the transfer case 75% of the time this trick work, if you need pictures tomorrow when I am at work I email you a couple.

I have a 95 rodeo Turbo diesel the problem is the motor will turn over but won't start I can push start it and when it's hot it starts fine I have no glow plug light on dash can u help


Battery, starter. Diesels have to turn over fairly fast to get started. If the battery is low on amps or the starter is dragging could be the problem. I would also look at fixing the glow plugs if they aren't working. Just because the light doesn't come on, doesn't mean they aren't working.

4WD won't go into 4-l0....button blinks when you push it


I know on a different brand of vehicle you have to be in park or neutral to put it in low...and likewise to take it back out. Might be the case for you.

It's a holden rodeo turbo/diesel 2005.check 4wd light on


A mere 2,400km into the life of my 07 Rodeo TD 4WD, I used 4L for about 2km of medium-steep/slippery track. After stopping and selecting 2WD the 'Check 4WD' light appeared, meaning I was stuck in 2WD for the rest of that trip. Luckily I was able to complete the trip in 2WD without incident.

The dealer blamed me for 'not following the instructions in the manual' (utter codswallop), 'fixed' it, and very reluctantly gave me a scribbled set of instructions on resetting the system, which I've included below.

When I suggested that these instructions should be included in the manual, the response was 'not necessary if owners use the system correctly'. More cods.

Here's how to reset it:

1. Ignition off, hold all 3 buttons (2H, 4H & 4L) in together

2. Switch ignition on to 'reds' position (last position before start)

3. Hold in this state for 30 seconds

Hope this may be of use !!
