    Turns out it was the alternator. As always, parts for the rodeo were quite expensive. Rats! But up and running again.

Just a few easy things to check! if your battery is more then 3 yrs old,its a good idea to replace it, even if this is not the cure, but it sounds to me it is a good possibility,had the same problem with my car! see you don't want to jump start it through the battery in your car! the way to buy pass a bad battery is to connect the positive cable from the good battery to the positive post on the car being jumped, connect the negative cable to the frame of the car being jumped,NOT TO THE BATTERY.also, when u get it running take it right to a place that can check your alternator to make sure its o.k. their are some auto part stores that will do that for free and u could get the battery from them if needed.good luck to u,hope we helped!

98 Isuzu rodeo turned car off while in drive gear now won't restart

shutting off while in drive should not hurt anything-do you have dash lights when you turn the key on-will the engine turn over when you turn the key to start position-is it firing at all-let me know and I will try to help you-Denny
