Question about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

2001 Rodeo.... Insert ignition key, all dash lights light up, but starter doesn't engage... have to remove and re-insert the key several times and then, usually on the third or forurth try, it has started... so far. This problem just recently started and there is around 75,000 miles on the vehicle.... has been flawless to this point... could the solution be as simple as a new key? I took the car into an auto repair shop, but they had no answers.

Security light has come on while driving the car


Try cleaning the contacts on the key resistor (the metal strips on each side of the black insert in the shank of the key). Use rubbing alcohol. If this doesn't work, put some contact cleaner on the key contact, the insert and remove in the ignition lock several times. Wipe off the key and repeat. (Don't spray contact cleaner into the lock - it may cause problems with the key mechanism.)
If that doesn't solve the problem you may have a problem with the wiring to the key contacts, most likely in the steering column.

When I insert key to start the car it will not turn at all. What is this part called?


The component is a starter. When you insert your key into the ignition and turn it, you switch on the power to the coil and vehicle computers. By turning the key to the start position it will supply power to the starter and solenoid which cranks the engine until you release the key allowing to return to the ignition on position. If the battery is weak the starter solenoid may engage producing a clicking sound, but it will not crank the engine. Another test is to turn on the dome light and try to start the vehicle, if you see the dome light dim when you are trying to start the car the battery is weak or the starter has a short. Starters are temperamental at times and can be intermittent working sometimes and malfunction other times. Your ignition switch, fuse, or relay could also produce symptoms of your vehicle not cranking.

2001 Rodeo Sport has been having a problem when I go to start it. I put the key in and the lights come on but it doesn't turn over, if I reach down and jiggle some wires under the dash or move the shifter...


your plug going into your ignition switch is probably loose, or there is a short in one of the wires. The ignition is likely going to be on the top of the steering column. You will have to remove the plastic around the column and check all of the connections. You may have to replace the switch.

Power is on all the time with or without the key in the ignition. There are no positions (ie...accessories, on, start). When the key is inserted it moves freely in all positions. I removed the steering...

How do I program my key for my 2006 Chevy Impala?


Add Duplicate Key (PK3 or PK3+ key)
1. Insert an existing key into the ignition cylinder.
2. Turn the ignition cylinder to ON (RUN) and back to OFF.
3. Remove the existing key and, within fifteen seconds, insert the new key
and turn it to ON (RUN).
4. The security light will light up for two seconds to indicate success in programming
the key into the vehicle.
Originate New Master Key (PK3 or PK3+ key)

1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position.
The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten minutes.
2. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back to the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
3. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back on the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
4. After the security light has gone off the third time, the key has been programmed
into the vehicle’s computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the
previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the
vehicle’s computer.

Starter will not engage anti theft light is on it is a 2005 cobalt


I found this on a website try this

1. Put the newly cut Master key into the keyway and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. A "security" indicator
light on the dashboard will stay on for 10 minutes.
2. Within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON (RUN)
position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes (Do not remove the key.)
3. Again, within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON
(RUN) position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes. (Do not remove the key.)
4. When the light goes off the third time, the new key is programmed into the computer and will start
the car. Remove the key and then re-insert it into the ignition lock and start the car.
All previously stored codes will be erased. To stop the process at any time, simply remove the key and use
an existing key to start the car.
