Question about 1998 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

My 1999 isuzu rodeo wont start.

I have had the alternator and battery replaced twice in my 1999 isuzu rodeo. The problem will start with the MPH gauge and the RPM gauge going haywire, and then the radio turns on and off or just turns off completely. We took off the alternator and had it tested 3 times the other day when it first started this problem, and all 3 times it tested good at Autozone. The problem is it still won't start, we jumped it off 4 times just so I could get it home. The interior lights work fine and it turns over, I can hear the starter clicking trying to turn on. Why is it not starting or what should I test or have replaced?

Check all your connections to your alternator,starter and your battery But you you are hearing the starter "click" but not engage..try tapping on the starter with a hammer if it is easy to get to..this some and sometimes does work..but your starter solenoid can be bad..the starter can be bad..igntion module a number of possibilities..goto your local parts store or public library and purchase a repair manual or check one out at the library

1999 Isuzu Rodeo: the amount of gas in truck does not register on the meter. What could the problem be.


There could be a poor connection or an open circuit between the power control module and the fuel gauge sender, or the fuel gauge sender itself is bad. The sender is mounted to the gas tank and usually can be replaced without dropping the tank.

Dash lights come on..mph gauge went down..radio cut out..loss of power in engine..kills batterie. While running, removed pos. batt. cable and engine died. Altenator problem??


You need to replace the Alternator. The vehicle died because you removed the power supply to all the accessories, if you remove the Negative cable and it dies then you know for sure it is the alternator. that is an old shade tree way to test the alternator.

My 1999 Isuzu Rodeos gas gauge shows empty with gas light on all the time even when full . has worked once in last week but very slow coming up


Try Replacing your gas sending unit or gas pressure sensor unit, both fairly east to replace with minimal expenses. If this does not fix the problem then change the fuel pump. But start with the gas sending unit.

Car died on the freeway and cant get it to start again. Its been a couple of days when I stick the key in it makes a clicking sound and now my lights wont even turn on


You first have to make sure the alternator has not failed. Try to fully charge the battery and see if the truck will start. If it starts, remove the battery cables making sure they don't touch the vehicle. If the truck shuts off, the alternator has failed. If it remains running, turn on the head lights along with other accessories. If it shuts off, the alternator still may be weak and needs replacing. Lastly, have the battery load tested to ensure that it still holds a proper charge.

1997 Isuzu Rodeo 2wheel drive. Repalced


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.
