If you hear a click when the ignition is turned but no start its a high possibility that its the starter or the wiring going to and from the starter. Hope this helps! ~Derek~

Vehicle cluster lights do not come on and starter will not engage when turning the key. Everything else works, just had the wiring harness replaced

Sounds like the key switch. I would check that first.
If everything came on but the engine did not crank I would have said to check the neutral safety switch and the starter.

What's your problem?starter wont turn engine

Could be electrical or mechanical.
Does the crankshaft turn by hand ?
Have you checked for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch ?

How to know if starter is good

Hi John,

It is really hard to say without having the vehicle here to check the starter circuits. There are several things that can cause this including a malfunction in your vehicle immobilizer circuits (Your security system might "think" that the vehicle is being tampered with or stolen).

One thing you might try is to try and eliminate the neutral safety switch by first, making sure that the shifter is all the way in PARK when you try to start it. If you are sure that it is all the way in PARK and it does nothing, try placing the shifer in NEUTRAL and see if it will start. If it does not start in PARK, but starts in NEUTRAL, replace your transmissin range sensor (AKA neutral safety switch).

Also make sure that your battery connections are clean and tight on BOTH ends.

You can also get a helper to work the ignition switch while you check for power on the small BLACK/WHITE wire at the starter solenoid. If there is voltage there, then your problem is the starter. If there is no voltage there, some serious diagnosis needs to happen.

Other than this, I would recommend scanning your computer network to see if it is a aecurity system malfunction.

I have recently purchased a second hand isuzu trooper model 1999 with manual transmission..everything goes on smoothly until one day it suddenly stopped as if it has gone out of fuel and wont start no...

No its not full with diesel fuel this is a common shut off on the isuzu. Plus the valve are always noisy . The crank sensor on those go out easy.This may not be the problem.Go to the back have someone crank it ,or if your hearing is great as you crank it do you hear a hummin noise that will be the fuel pump if you dont then the fuel pump will most likely be your problem.If you hear a humming noise as you turn the key on the fuel pump will not be the problem.Now let check spark. do you have a tach on it (the RPM) if you do crank it if it bounces just a tinytiny bit you have spark and the fuel pump will be the problem. Most common Isuzu trooper failure the ignition module

1999 Izuzu Trooper will not start

Try neutral start switch. Use shop manual to determine its location on an automatic vehicle. If vehicle is a stick its attached to clutch pedal via lever. To test it remove it from its connectors and make a jumper wire and jump the circuit if car starts you found your culprit.

Not Starting

This could be a bad battery, wiring problem, neutral safety switch or ignition switch. Check wire going into neutral saftey switch for voltage while in crank position. If you have voltage replace neutral saftey switch if not replace ignition switch. Thank you and make sure to rate me. Thanks
