!997 Isuzu Rodeo Warning Lights

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?

    I already have replaced the gas cap a few months ago when the engine light first came on, it seemed to fix the problem. Could there be a problem with the sensor? What would you suggest is the casue of the battery light and the 4x4 light just coming on? Wiring problem maybe?

On the 3.2L distriburorless ignition, the firing order is a straight 1-2-3-4-5-6.

Cylinder numbering .


Hope this works for you

SOURCE: 1992 Isuzu Rodeo Distributor wires 3.1L engine

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.

SOURCE: 2000 Honda (Isuzu Rodeo) Check Engine Light ? 4 Codes, Misfire/Throttle/EVAP ?

Hi Jack,

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.

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.

I have 2000 Isuzu rodeo when turning on head lights the left turn stops working and dash lights start blinking off and on

seems to me (id use my meter to find truth) a short in the HL.
head lights. and possible wrong size fuse in that circuit too.

find a good ASE shop. they will make short (no pun) work of this.
or buy a DMM and ask how to do this.
or inspect all HL wires for shorts.
it also seems to me the park lamps side is shorted.
but i cant see dash and the effect.
are you saying the warning lights in cluster or blinking
or the cluster back lights flash.
if back lights , that is PARK (via dimmer) in the dash.
so if the backlights dim that means the park feed is shorted.
but, like I said, I never guess. I use a meter.

Have the ABS pump ECM checked (it is separate from the main ECM), try to catch it early. I bought a transmission last year. This is typical 98-02 Rodeo behavior.

I was driving and lost power. All the warning lights went on, but the headlights and radio turned off. Engine ran for another 5 minutes.

Sounds like your alternator quit working or you may have broke a belt,the engine would stay running until you did'nt have enough power left to run the ignition system.
