SOURCE: 1995 Isuzu rodeo will not start battery is in good condition

I had the same problem as you. Thought it was starter or battery,,,it was neither. I kid you not, I figure this out for myself and problem solved. I did not have the tailgate window locked and it took at least 30 attempts to start. When I locked the tailgate opener located on the far left of dashboard, never a problem,,,, I pulled out the operator's manual/remote control/vehicle security system manual and to my surprise it confirmed. Here is the exact quote from manual "While armed, the system is triggered when a door or the tailgate window is opened. When triggered, the vehicle's horn sounds, and the exterior and interior lights flash. PERHAPS, MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE VEHICLE'S STARTER IS DISABLED AT THE SAME TIME, PREVENTING ENGINE START!!!" Please let me know if this solves your problem or you already went there..

SOURCE: timing settings for a 1998 isuzu rodeo

You didn't say whether you had a V6 engine or a 4cyl. Here is the procedure for a V6.

It sounds like he moved the cam shaft independently of the crankshaft or other camshaft so you will need to do all these procedures:

1. Turn the crankshaft until the mark on the spocket is lined up with the mark on the oil pump housing (the mark is on the driver's side at 90 degrees to the sprocket itself).

2. Back off the crankshaft counterclockwise 1/8 turn to ensure the pistons aren't at top dead center. This gives the valves room to move without hitting the piston.

3. Turn the passenger's side camshaft until it "jumps" into place with the alignment mark on the camshaft pully is pretty close to being lined up with the mark on the engine head.

4. Turn the driver's side camshaft until it "jumps" into place but this won't be perfectly lined up with the mark but will be about an 1/8 turn off from the mark. Then line it up by hand.

5. The idler pulleys and tensioner pulleys should be installed on the engine but the tenioner pulley adjuster (it is a little cylinder with a rod coming out of it that is held in place by 2 bolts) should be removed.

6. Place the new belt on the crankshaft first. Be sure the arrows on the belt point in a clockwise direction. If you have a belt with lines and dots then the lines will line up with all markings that you have lined up together. The dots should line up at the 270 degree point on the crankshaft (opposite of the lines and the markings).

7. Loop the belt around the tensioner pulley, around the passenger's side cam, under the waterpump, around the driver's side cam, and finally around the idler pulley. Check all alignments.

8. Put the tesioner adjuster in a vise and squeeze it together until you can place a small drill bit or allen wrench through the holes to keep it compressed.

9. This is the tricky part. You will need to install the tensioner adjuster and that will require some moving of the belt to allow enough play to get the adjuster in place. This may move the passenger's side alignment. If so, you will need to try it again. I find that if you move passenger's side alignment mark clockwise by one tooth of the sprocket, then when you go to put the tensioner in place it lines up. You may find other tricks to overcome this challenge.

10. Once you think you have everything lined up. Use a wrench to turn the crankshaft sprocket 2 full turns. Listen closely and feel for any hard resistance as you do this to determine if the pistons are hitting the valves. If you believe they are hitting each other thenrepeat the adjustment procedure. Not doing this can ruin the valves or more.

11. If everything seems OK. remove the drill bit or allen wrench from the tension adjuster. Perform step 10 again for one final check.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

1998 Isuzu rodeo no meter lights and won't start


1998 rodeo
what lights, you wean the cluster warning lights are dead.
or the cluster park , illimunation lights are dead.
are parks working (outside)
are head lights bright? outside)
wont start, does that mean it wont CRANK?
that means the starter is silent or is just a click

nobody can answer (correctly) lacking those facts.


1: check all fuses.
2: head lights work if not battery terms are rusty clean them.?
3: key on.
4: CEL lamp must glow, (check engine light) if not fuses blown or battery is dead. for sure.
4: tune key to start, does starter spin crank shaft fast?
ill stop here. my wild guess is you will not get this far.

198 isuzu rodeo starter clicks but doesn't engage and lights do not dim. alarm chirped unlocking. why wont it start?


Your battery has enough amps and voltage to power up the accessories, but does not have enough amps to engage the starter motor. The click you here at the starter is the solenoid trying to allow the starter motor to turn. Either replace the battery and/or check the battery connections for corroded terminals.

Holden rodeo v6 1998 3.2L 4wd


the click is the solenoid hitting the bendix, try geting someone to turn the key,and as they do,tap the starter with a hammer, or heavy wrench, if it starts, then its the solenoid, and it can be stripped and replaced, if it doesnt start,then its the bendix, and you will need to replace the starter, ....which you can do yourself, .....takes about an hour or so

1999 Isuzu trooper wont start everything works lights, guages but makes no noise when key is turned to start it , could it be neutral safety switch in shifter?


If you hear a click when the ignition is turned but no start its a high possibility that its the starter or the wiring going to and from the starter. Hope this helps! ~Derek~
