Question about Isuzu Trooper
My car has been turning on its own lights, and even when I try to turn the nob to on and off again they will not shut off. It drains my car battery and I have to jump start it all the time. CarX looked at it and said there was nothing wrong. I don't know what to do
If it has automatic lights find the photo cell that tells the controller when it's day light or nite. check it to make sure its able to see the light. If its ok it will be the controller. A service manual will help you fine thier locations which you might find at your local libary. If thier manual lights it the light switch I have had this problem on older trucks before.

Last night I checked the battery and it was still good. I disconnected and then reconn ected both terminals and that brought the power back. When I turned the key the power went out again. I repeated the procedure but did not turn the key. Instead, I took off the knee bolster and tried to wiggle the wires under the dash to see if I could find the source since it seems to be related to the ignition. Nothing cut the power so I started it up and it worked fine except for the check engine light which was flashing that says I have a misfire condition. I drove the car 25 miles to work this morning and will be taking it to the dealer for a better inspection.

You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck
