The operators guide tells tells you, dont do that.
its not AWD, its part time system. like jeeps.
if not on ice or dirt stay out of 4wd. its only for that.
never on dry pavement.
and the dangers to you and transfer case.
im sure your car is not AWD or Full time 4wd.

so this page applies, (posted over 100 times but no one searches)
your car has no center differential, so..... stop expecting one.

so drive to dirt../sand, gravel or grass and shift out steer gently.
or jack up one tire, and shift out.
2 choices to recovery,
post 101..... LOL

It sounds like the encoder motor. That's the black plastic box on the driver's side of the transfer case. But just to make sure, the control module for the encoder motor is located behind the passenger side kick plate (inside the vehicle, passenger side, where your feet would be, outside side). Disconnect it for a few seconds and then reconnect it. If the problem still exists, you will have to repair or change your encoder motor. I grabbed one at a scrap yard for less than $100.00.

Encoder motor located on the transfer case is usually the problem. It is the motor that shifts the transfer case.

SOURCE: My automatic 96 isuzu rodeo no longer engages in

Hahahaha!... Seriously....!?!?! First off don't try to use a scan tool. The 4WD system isn't integrated into the OBD system. You won't get any codes related to 4WD.

Most likely the problem is defective shift solenoids. There are two shift solenoids which control the engagement and disengagement of the 4WD (locking the front axle gear into the the driveshaft input). These solenoids are located on the front axle. They have their own small skid plate. One is blue, and one is gray. One controls engagement, and one controls disengagement. One is a normally closed electrically controlled vacuum solenoid, and one is a normally open electrically controlled vacuum solenoid.

I'm not blindly recommending changing these, but usually one of these are the culprit of the problems you described. I'm even more confident in those being the problem due to your explanation of the the intermittent problems. At any rate test first.

The other components of the 4WD system are the vacuum lines and the actuator which is also located on the front axle and covered by the forementioned small skidplate. Moderate to serious rock-involved off-roading with a stock suspension usually results in this component being damaged.

I have 2002 and I find that you have to come to a complete stop, put it in reverse momentarily, and that should take care of it. Cheaper than going to the dealer and having them really fix it!!!

1997 isuzu rodeo 4x4 problem


Only the "S" model has the manual locking hubs.
Auto locking hubs look like normal center on a whel; only bigger. Manual locking hubs woul have and indent in the middle of hub and a raised ridge to grab with your finger to rotate the hub into the locked position. There should be some writting on the hub edge telling you which way to turn to lock and unlock.
