Question about 1998 Isuzu Rodeo
I was in the process of engaging the 4 wheel drive when I had to make a turn and the 4 wheel didn't engage. Now the car won't move. It happened once before, the tow truck driver did something under the truck and it moved into gear, any advicew?

I replaced the malfunctioning “thermal actuator” with the “Warn” Vacuum actuator setup, it’s been working great for about 7 years now, simple install, if I remember correctly, it was about $150.
That’s what engages the front diff into 4wd.

It sounds as if you have a vacuum solenoid problem.
The 4x4/4x2 vacuum solenoids are attached to the upper RH side of the engine compartment, and alternately route vacuum to the vacuum motor which engages/disengages the center axle disconnect collar in the front axle assembly.They are grounded when activated, open circuit when deactivated.I would first of all make sure that you have power to them on the W/LB wire with ignition in run postion.If not then check fuse 23 (10amp) in the interior fuse panel.Disconnect the solenoids and measure their resitance should be between 50-100 ohms.

your problem is probably the front axle solenoid. it is in the center of the truck on the front axle and it is really easy to change. Simply unplug the electrical connector and use a wrench to loosen it. Spin it counter clockwise until it comes out........Manual hubs i believe are not available for this truck but i think there is a aftermarket cable you can buy and install to lock the front diff in.
