Mpodeszek u asked me to clarify the problem. I'm not sure where I was supposed to reply because I'm new to this. I have an appt. tomorrow with an automotive electrical shop because I figured it was the wiring. Just thought it was something simple I could do myself. I'm not to familiar with wiring. The shop charges 90 bucks an hour so you can c my delay. thanks for responding.

Re: 2000 isuzu rodeo no tail lights
There is a separate fuse for the parking lamps and the instrument lamps. Have you checked these fuses? Also there are many fuses in a box under the hood of the car. Check to see that there is not signs of water or corrosion in that box. Pull and reseat the fuse that supplies power to lighting in the power distribution fuse block under the hood. The autoparts stores can supply you with the location of this unit and some information on which fuses control what circuits. Check the fuses before you go to the shop.

possibally a short and the most common area to cop a hard life is if it has a trailer plug check the condition of the wires and that they are secured properly . if ever thing is ok there check the rear tail light bulbs for defects as well. but your lookin for a short in the system so if you have altered any thing in the electrical system a quick check over that as well. rear earthing to tail lights should be checked as well
My 97 Rodeo had the same problem. No Tail lights, no. Dash lights. There is also an annoying buzzer that goes with the set telling you the lights are on, there is no key in the ignition and your door is open. (you don't notice it when it's gone but you sure notice it when it's back) The Fuse (taillight Illum) was good, The Light relay under the hood was good and all bulbs were good. What fixed this problem was replacing the tail light relay which is located in a panel just to the left of the brake pedal also called the kick panel.Inside there are 3 relays. I replaced the one in the middle and got everything to work. If you need to identify the relay you can put your hand over it and then turn the lights on and off. The correct relay should click. Mine was the middle one. Hope this helps someone because it stumped me for months.
hi cjryan 9876 when you look on the outside of the lens there are 2 philips head screws & if open your tail gate there are another 2 philips head screws in there as well one of which is located through the locking tab for the tailgate once you undo these the tail light should fall out & then to get the tail light out of the socket give it a quarter turn anti clock wise
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.
i had the same problem with my wifes rodeo what you have to do is go into the housing for the bearing there is a washer that has 3 screws you need to take out. after you take it out there is a peice that has 5 holes put something in the holes to unscrew it i used needle nose pliers. once you get that piece out you can remove the rotor you may have to jiggle it a little but the rotor will come right off
