Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo
While i had my check engine light decoded, it turned out to be a EVAPemission malfunction, but now witht he engine light still on, my battery light comes on also with the 4x4 light, i noticed when i put in 4x4 the light used to not come on when i first bought the truck. Now the light is also on with the battery light. I have checked the grounds, made sure the battery was securly connected and working. Brand new battery. Any fixes for the 4x4 light or the battery light? Also where is the switch for the 4x4 located? ( the swith which turns on the light on dash) and where is the Evap emission sensor is?
Isuzu seem to have complicated things by changing engines, firing orders and even direction of rotation! As you can see, they've numbered the cylinders the other way than the 3.2L.
The Firing sequence for the 3.1 (traditional distributor) 6 cylinder is as follows -
If you take the distributor cap off, there should be a "No.1" formed on the inside. Stick a lead on this before you put the cap back on and go from there.
As leads are different lengths, you may have to swap a few to find the best fit.
I think 2 of them will look out of place - but that's the way it's designed. Just make use of clips for holding them neatly.
Thanks for using Fixya.

I am not an expert and I don't have the codes in front of me with the meaning but I can offer some advice and hopefully it will solve your problem. First keep the print out of the codes and take it/them with you. Have someone check the oxygen sensor. It's possible that all of the codes you are getting lead up to the computer (electrical issue). I sure hope this helps. Good luck and let me know how things turn out.

Although I recommend you buy a Haynes service manual for your Dodge, I think you will find the canister attached to the firewall or one of the fender wells.
Most of them look a lot like an overgrown spam can and it will have two connections on it.
