Check the battery and cables going to the starter. Weak arc? Possible that the relay needs to be rechecked now. The inertia switch may also be a possibility. Has the car been in a recent fender bender?

Very possibly the safety switch since relay and solenoid turn out ok. Double check battery cables are metal to metal. You can use voltmeter to test power to relays, fuses, solenoid, and ignition

Lots of power, dash lights up but no ignition power to starter, relay changed, neutral start switch changed, fuses good.


Well, looking at the schematic, there is the IGN A (Fuse 6) in the under-hood fuse block feeding power to both the ignition switch and to the NO contact of the starter relay. Turning the ignition switch to the START position sends this voltage thru the CRANK (Fuse 8) in the instrument panel fuse block and thru the PARK/NEUTRAL position switch, thru the starter relay coil to ground. This should activate the Starter relay and pass voltage to the starter solenoid to ground, activating it. One the starter solenoid activates, batter power is sent to the starter motor, activating it. If, as you say, the fuses are good, the starter relay was replaced and is good, and the Park/Neutral position switch was replaced and is good, then then only items left are the ignition switch itself, the starter solenoid/motor, or the wiring of the circuit.

Can you jumper the solenoid on the starter and make it crank ?
Do you have power to the relay when the key is in the start position ?
Power goes from the key switch thru a crank fuse, then thru the neutral safety switch, then to the starter relay. The relay sends power from a 40amp ignition fuse to the starter solenoid.

My 1997 isuzu rodeo wont start. i checked the battery and it has a good charge so its not that and when i turn the key the dash lights up and everything but i dont even hear a click. when i turn the key...


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good, on both ends, not just at the battery. I looked at info for 4 cylinder engine. You can see the two fuses, not only check the fuses, use a test light and check voltage at fuse circuit. The main fuse is hot all the time. The starter fuse goes hot with key in start position, so you need a helper to turn the key while you check for voltage at the fuse. At the starter motor, two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position and is wired through clutch switch and starter relay. The starter motor grounds through the engine block. If good voltage and ground circuits at the starter motor and no action, have to check starter motor and make sure the engine isn't seized. Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.

Jump start isuzu rodeo


If you have lights the battery is probably ok.
A mechanic would check for battery voltage at the starter with a meter or test light and then trace back to the key switch. You would have a neutral safety switch or clutch switch in the circuit to keep you from cranking the engine in gear.
If it is an automatic and you can crank it in neutral, the safety switch has failed.

Put a new engine in a 1998 isuzu rodeo now it won't start. I thought it was the neutral safety switch because the R was on the dash and it was in park


This could be the problem. If your dash indicator is showing reverse but the transmission is in park it could be the safety switch. I'm not talking about the safety switch in the transmission though. In automatics they put a second switch to kill the starter from engaging. You need to adjust the linkage. If your shifter isn't actually on the column but the indicators are there is a cable that attaches the floor shift to the column and that is adjustable. Put the Floor shifter in Park and turn the column section nearest the dash by hand until you find park. Then adjust the cable length as needed. If all you have is the column shift it is still a cable adjustment. Set the emergency brake, drop the shifter to low 1 and adjust the cable linkage by loosening it on the transmission and manually move it all the way to low 1 then tighten it down then move the shifter to park and repeat teh adjustment process to verify that it is properly aligned. Lock the linkage back down and see if the vehicle will start, if it doesn't move the shifter to neutral and try to start the vehicle if the vehicle starts then check the column shift safety switch at the park position to make sure it is still in place and working. Typically, if the vehicle won't start in Park or Neutral it is more likely to be the Transmission neutral safety switch.

This may actually be a problem with the starter solenoid and not the neutral safety switch. If when you try to start the vehicle and you are only getting a clicking, then I would replace the starter solenoid which is typically found on the passenger side firewall. If not there, then on the starter itself.

Have you checked your Battery? Next with the car in park, check for voltage at the from the battery to ground,. If the battery is good and there is no power make sure that you have a good ground from the batter to the chassie.
