SOURCE: turn the ignition key and nothing happens. turn it

when it won't start, use a test light on the solenoid wire (the small gauge wire) in the start position, you should have voltage. Also check your shift linkage to make sure the shift cable isn't keeping it from going into park position. try it in neutral position as well... that's a clue to a trans selector switch

SOURCE: Engine will not crank. Battery is good Starter is

Be sure this car doesn't have a starter relay, you can can purchase a cd repair manual on ebay motors that has a electrical component locate in the software, this is a valuable tool to have, great deal for the $20.00. Hopefully this is not an ignition switch they are a pain to do you will need a steering wheel puller amongst other tools not commonly found in the laymans tool chest such as metric torx wrenches etc. check the replace the starter relay first if warranted then do the ignition switch be sure to check all fuses in the fuse block located in engine compartment if equipped.

SOURCE: When I turn the ignition key I get nothing from

i would not rule out the starter-your best bet to eliminate the starter is to have someone bang on the starter as you turn the key to start it-if it starts great get the starter replaced-it is locking up-if it starts smoking or you smell something burning
that too is a bad starter-replace it
if neither of these work then have someone check the ignition(as long as its not the battery-just cause it has power doesnt mean the battery is not bad-it may not have enough power to start the vehicle)

Tip

Trouble-shooting your Isuzu starter..


Basic operation of a starter:
Your engine's starter motor is an electrical motor that is used to rotate the engine in order to get it to fire up. This motor draws a large amont of current from the battery (in the order of 70 Amps and up). In order to supply power to the starter a solenoid is used, it acts as a switch between the battery and the starter motor. This solenoid also engages the starter gear with the engine's flywheel and disengages it once the engine is started. Because the circuit for the solenoid also draws a heavy current a further relay is needed to control it.
The diagram below shows the electrical layout of the starting system.
  • i : Battery
  • ii : Starter relay(located in the relay box in the engine compartment)
  • iii : Starter solenoid
  • iv : Starter incorporating solenoid and motor.
  • v : Engine
  • vi : Battery earth cable
  • vii : Engine earth cable
  • viii : Ignition fuse
  • ix : Starter fuse
  • x : Solenoid to starter supply cable
  • xi : Ignition switch
  • xii : Starter motor
When the ignition(xi) is turned it supplies power from the battery through fuse (viii) to the starter relay(ii).
The starter relay activates and supplies power to the starter solenoid(iii) via fuse (ix)
The starter solenoid activates and connects power from the battery to the starter via a short cable(x) between the solenoid and starter motor. This allows the starter motor to turn.

General trouble shooting.
Turn the ignition off.
1/ First you need to check that the fuses are intact.
Keep the ignition off. Place the vehicle in Neutral. Chock the wheels and engage the parking brake.
2/ To prove the starter motor, connect power from the battery positive to the cable (x). This must be done with jumper cables. Touch the jumper cable to the connector on the back of the solenoid where cable (x) connects. Take care not to short circuit the jumper cable to the engine or vehicle body. It can be a tight fit and might not always be possible. If you hear the starter motor spin then it is working along with the engine earth cable. If not, connect the negative lead of the jumper cable between the battery and the starter motor body or any other bare piece of metal on the engine and put the positive lead on cable (x) again. If the starter motor does not spin it needs to come out for repair/replacement. If it spins check both the battery earth cable and engine earth cable and repair where nescasary.
3/ Once the starter motor has been proved move on to the solenoid. Remove the thin wire from the solenoid. Using a small piece of wire, connect battery positive to the connector where you just took off the wire. The solenoid should kick in and the starter motor will turn the engine. If the solenoid does not kick in, remove the starter for repair/replacement of the solenoid. If the solenoid kicks in then replace the starter relay.

If the starting circuit still does not operate the fault will be in the wiring. This needs reasonable expertise and if you dont have a voltmeter handy is not advised.
Bear in mind on automatic transmission vehicles there is an additional switch (Mode switch) wired in between the ignition switch and the starter relay. This switch is on the transmission itself and if faulty will not allow the starter to operate even if steps 1 to 3 were successfull. The same goes for the anti theft/immobiliser system.

The following is specifically for Isuzu Trooper and Rodeo :
  • i : Battery
  • ii : Starter relay(located in the relay fuse box in the engine compartment designated X-17)
  • iii : Starter solenoid
  • iv : Starter incorporating solenoid and motor.
  • v : Engine
  • vi : Battery earth cable
  • vii : Engine earth cable
  • viii : 10A Starter fuse C-1(Fuse box: LH footwell on LHD vehicle, RH dash on RHD vehicle)
  • x : Solenoid to starter supply cable
  • xi : Ignition switch
  • xii : Starter motor
  • xiii : 80A Main fusible link FL-1(Relay fuse box)
  • xiv : 50 A Key SW fusible link FL-2(relay fuse box)
  • xv : Mode switch(A/T only - mounted on the side of the transmission) and for 6 cylinder manual transmission engines this is the clutch start switch mounted on the clutch pedal.
  • xvi : Anti theft system
  • B2 : B2 on ignition sitch
  • ST : ST on ignition switch

The csd relay kicks and cut the current to the heater plugs and pump when i connect the upper temp sensor isuzu 4ja1, 2.5l turbo what could be the problem, pump and injectors are reconditioned?


what car ?
what year.?
what model car.
what country, (engine and fuel system vary by,,, country)
Bakkie means Austrailia, we are USA forum and dont have the car here, nor books on it, what is uses for injection cant guess.

why not post to a "Australia isuzu forum".. and get fast accurate answers. Goggle that and bingo, it hits. in 1sec, flat.

the books are not free. isuzu sells them in your country
if you ask on Aust, forum maybe someone has the book and can scan it.? for you?

seem like it needs major electric work.
why not go to Isuzu and buy the book, and have all that,....

I have a 19914x4 isuzu pick up.when I turn the ignition switch on I get dashlights. But the starter will not turn over and the fuel pump will not kick on, I can cross cylinoid andspray fuel and it run


Likely that your ignition fuse is blown, your ignition relay has failed, or your SOLENOID (there is no such thing as a "cylinoid") has failed.

Turn ignition of bakkie FORD COURIER but bakkie won`t start heard only a clicking sound


Bakkie ?
Anyway, try your headlights on full beam. If they dim to almost off when you try to start then most likely its your battery. If they only give a slight flicker but stay bright its most likely the solenoid on your starter motor thats failed. A push start will get you going so you can drive to a dealer.

Everything has power when i turn the key to the on position but when i turn the key to start the truck, nothing happens. headlights dont dim or anything and everything still has power. all fuses are...


When you crank the engine are you getting a full 12 volts positive at the solenoid switch on the top of the starter?

Have you got a full 12 volts negative to the switch?

Also, check the earthing strap from chassis to engine is good.
