Question about 1999 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

2001 isuzu rodeo has intermittent starting problems

My 2001 Isuzu Rodeo will sometimes not start when I turn the key. All dashboard lights come on but it will not crank. I have to turn the key back and remove it then reinsert it and keep trying. This has happened approximately 10 times in the past 2 months. A couple of those times there was a kind of metallic clank sound when the key was turned prior to it starting. Other times it cranks right up on the first try with no problems! What could this be?

Check battery cables & terminals for tightness & corrosion.also check at starter.check starter bolts & actual starter for looseness.if no problems found your starter may be on its way out.next time it happens hit starter with hammer or heavy object if it starts right up get ready to replace it.good luck

    Consider getting so drunk that you pass out at a comedy club - perhaps you should pursue a really bitchy non-smoker through that same clubs parking lot. This has nothing to do with your car - but it was funny the last time you did it. As for your car, perhaps consider selling it to the OZARK AL Mafia.

Loose or corroded battery cables. Also possibly a bad starter solenoid or starter. Clean and tighten battery terminals. If it still does this, remove the starter and have it tested at any auto parts store.

Hope that helps.......

Good day, I have a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo LS 2WD, manual transmission. A week ago I started having problems starting my truck, seems like the ignition switch was not working, I have to crank it up to four t


Could be your fuel pump failing. Try this; turn ign key to "on", not "start" then off after 5 seconds. Do this several times then try "start". If it starts right up this time, your fuel pump could be going bad, or the fuel pressure is dropping for whatever reason.

Check your Fuel Lines and your Fuel Pump. (I just fixed a problem with my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Fuel Return Line).

Also remember that in Rodeos, as soon as you turn your car key to turn the ignition on (just to make the dashboard lights go on) a certain amount of gasoline gets pumped to your engine in preparation of you turning the key all the way to crank the ignition and start the car. In other words, even before you turn the key all the way to crank the ignition, the Fuel Pump will pump some gasoline through the Fuel Lines to your engine (it will pump the gasoline for about 4 seconds then stop). So when you go to start your Rodeo, remember to turn the key with one continuos motion so that you start the ignition cranking while the gasoline is being actively pumped.

In addition, you should never turn the ignition lights on without turning the key all the way to start the engine. Doing so could cause that bit of gasoline that was pumped to start the engine to just sit there and create problems.

2001 isuzu rodeo doesnt always start. new


Dirty terminals, happens all the time. Did you have the battery tested? Or just know it's OK? Did you check the water? How about the electrolytes? Get the terminals cleaned off with a wire brush, and scrape the insides, make sure they are tight. I have replaced more batteries this week, must be the weather. One was stone dead, 5 volts and still started the car?? Couldn't believe it, good car. The other 2 were dead with 12+ volts but wouldn't start anything, both got new terminals, and both got cleaned up. NO problems. Check it out. Lastly, the solenoid in the starter could be bad if everything else checks out, whack it with a hammer while turning the key, if it jumps, you found it.

Intermittent starting Problem. Changed battery already


possibly the metal contacts in the starter have worn down and need to be replaced, I had that problem with my rodeo 90 model, had to keep clicking on the ignition key until it started, auto electrician said I need a recon starter $300+ dollars but I bought 2 new brushes $5 and put them in and had no more trouble
