Question about 2002 Isuzu Rodeo
2002 isuzu rodeo, won't crank, push starts and runs fine. took out starter and had it tested at store, they said it was good. Tried test light under the hood and there was no problem I could find. Someone suggested it could be the clutch pedal ignition lock switch. Is it also called neutral safety switch and other names? Where is this located and is it easy to change?
the clutch switch is located on the clutch pedal support, if you put your hand on the clutch pedal run your hand up and the switch will be at the top. now if you are going to replace this switch I would try to adjust the switch first the amount of time it takes and this would confirm that it's the switch. ensure clutch pedal is fully returned, disconnect the electrical connector from the switch. loosen lock nut and tighten clutch switch by hand until switch is firmly against clutch lever. back the switch out 1/2 turn, the switch plunger should extend .02-.06" (.5-1.5 mm).
hope this helps

Look under the dash at the clutch pedal. Should be a switch or a button hidden under there near the top of the pedal. Pull the connector off and put a large paper clip in it, or a short piece of wire, and try the starter. If it doesn't work then check the starter fuse and relay. Just swap the starter relay out with something that you know works like the AC or Fuel pump and see if it starts. If all else fails then it could be the ignition switch itself.
