First I would see if you are getting a spark out of your spark plugs. Take out the number one spark plug wire out first. Then take out the number one spark plug. Put it in the spark plug wire. Have some help you with the next step. Turn the key like you are gonna start the car and look at the spark plug to see if it's getting a spark if it's not, your distributor needs to be replaced. If it is I would suspect your stater is out.

Sounds like a bad ignition switch, usually in the steering column under the plastic, it should be only around $40. try AutoZone if it doesn't hellp they're good about returns

There is a "body control unit" that runs most of the interior stuff. It is up under the dash on the drivers side. For more info ,sign up for free on the home page look for a tab labeled : shop. click on that. enter the year make and model, and start researching. this is the same info the dealer techs have access to. It has helped me greatly.

There is no main fuse that turns everything off from battery.

First check if dome light is turning on. Eventually remove the aux. battery. If dome light is turning on, then start testing from ignition. Test ignition switch, wiring in steering column

The part that connects power to all the rest is the ignition switch.The power goes from battery to fuse plate.From fuse plate to ignition and ignition control module. From ignition to dash and internal light (those not powered from secondary home battery) and from ignition control module to coils and engine.

The first thing to test is the battery. Jumpstarting is not a good test. If battery does not charge at all, it may be shorted. Try charging battery at home (charger will tell you if battery is charging) or put a different battery in place of the one that you have. Double check the wires connected to battery. If the battery has charge you can read volts, but a better test is done using a multimeter to read Ohms and see if there is continuity (zero Ohms) between battery and contact on the other extreme of battery wire.

If battery is OK, check if there is power at the fuse plate. Power and ground contacts are located at the sides of the fuse plate. If there is power go for the ignition switch. Test switch, then check for shorts or broken contacts in steering column.

Things are slightly different if some of the electrical is working and car is for example not cranking or dash does not turn on. If there is no power whatsoever, then it is either battery, wiring, or ignition switch.

No start or no crank. no radio no radio ,power locks ,headlights or brakes light.

Have you checked the battery? Are you sure everything is connected/? If you can't get it to start because you have no juice but have a new battery, then that's a problem. Or something is draining the hell out of your battery. Check the fuses.

Ingterior lights, clock and radio memory won't work on 1998 isuzu rodeo when key is not on

The radio receives power from the 15A AUDIO FUSE in the dash fuse box. The radio memory receives power from the 10A DOME LIGHT FUSE in the same box. The problems you note suggest the radio may have been misconnected at some point or there has been a fuse failure or there is a broken connection.

Won't start

It ended up being corroded wiring. Apparently the wiring from the steering harness to the fuse box under the hood was corroded & had to be replaced.
