I hate that! If you hit the curb had it could be many things. If it died before you may have a blocked gas line or your fuel pump has a fuse out or a computer chip went out on you. Do you have radio, interior lights etc? If you do then it is not your battery. Don't try starting to much without a jumper source or your battery will go dead. If it makes a clicking noise it's most likely your starter. Did you have enough gas? If not sometimes you can prime the fuel injector by pouring a small amount of gas in but bevery careful. My bet is that your fuel pump went out or it's your gasoline line. Either way I would have a mechanic you trust look at it. It may be expensive. If you have high mileage then your fuel pump or injector could have lived out its life. Good luck

My son inlaw said his 94 isuzu rodeo died while driving and when tried to start it, it would only make beeping noises.

Check battery voltage. Sounds like the alternator might've gone bad. Also check oil level to make sure the engine didn't lock. If a strong battery doesn't turn it over, it may need more indepth work.

Get a Beck Arnley alternator. The auto-zone, Napa etc. alternators are a problem for Isuzu's. I worked at a dealership and a lot of them came in for this problem. If you still have the original have it rebuilt. Check yellow pages.
