The most likely cause of this problem can be traced to the key switch itself. I highly recommend you have the key switch either tested or replaced. It sounds as if the circuit is not getting cut when the key is turned off. I hope this helps and please do not forget to rate me.

I have a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo that continues to make a noise like a small motor running after ignition key is turned off. It runs the battery down and will not start until battery is jumped started. Any idea...

It could be a few things with out having the car here it's hard to say but what I would do it put a isolator switch off the battery so it won't run the battery flat until problem found

Trouble starting when its cold and idles high

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

How do you remove the positive battery cable? 1998 Isuzu Rodeo

The first thing to do is to remove the negative cable before the positive cable to prevent any shock and sparks. Battery cables have a nut and bolt keeping the lead made connector snug to the terminal of the battery. After loosening the nut you will need a pair of channel lock pliers to wiggle the battery cables end attached to the battery This will spread the connector open some to remove

Trying to change a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo v6 2WD starter and I'm looking for step by step instructions. Help?

1. Detach the cable from the negative terminal of the battery.
2. Raise the vehicle and support it securely on jack stands.
3. If you can reach them, disconnect the battery cable and solenoid connector from the starter motor solenoid. On some engines the terminals are difficult to reach while the starter is installed; it's actually easier to unbolt the starter, pull it out to point where you can reach and disconnect the cables.
4. Remove the starter motor bolts and detach the starter from the engine. Having socket swivels and extensions, along with angled wrenches, will make this job easier. Depending upon the year and engine type, the starter may be mounted above the transmission or below the intake manifold. On some models it may be necessary to remove the exhaust system to make room for the starter assembly to pass between the engine and chassis. Make sure the engine and exhaust system are cool before starting. I found that once you get the cables off, you have a better chance to remove the starter motor without removing the exhaust system. If you have to mess with the exhaust system, just loosen enough to allow clearance.
5. Install in the reverse order. If it was necessary to remove the starter to disconnect the cables, remember to maneuver the replacement starter in place, ensuring that you have the necessary access/clearance through the exhaust system, and reconnect the cables prior to bolting the starter in place.
6. Be patient. With the right tools and a little luck this shouldn't take more than an hour once you have the vehicle on jack stands and the engine has cool. It
