Question about 2000 Isuzu Rodeo
When the key is turned, the lights and radio work fine. The car makes no noises or clicking sounds. When I place the vehicle in neutral and let it roll about 1-2 feet and place it into park again, it starts as if nothing ever happened. I'm not sure that replacing the starter is the answer because I believe the starter is only engaged after the key is turned and it isn't moving when the wheels move prior to that. I do feel that it is something that repositions electrical contacts when the wheels move. Do you have any idea what it might be? Thanks for any assistance that may be provided.
It sounds as if your neutral safety start switch may be failing. This switch only allows for the safe start of an engine when the automatic transmission is in either park or neutral. It seems when you move around the gear selector you get it back to a spot where the switch allows the engine to start. Next time this happens while in park, try wiggling around the gear selector or place your foot on the brake (so you don't roll away) and place the transmission in to neutral. If it fires up you know to either adjust or replace the switch for the park position.
I hope this might have helped,
