This vehicle is seventeen years old ? something is worn out but what and where ? i have no information as to weither its petrol or diesel so i cannot advise but changing a alternator as well as this would never cause your problem as stated without knowing what fuel type your engine is i cannot even think about suggesting a few diagnostics other than to ask at the local garage ,could be anything from a perished vacumn pipe to fuel problem .no idea without more information .sorry

SOURCE: some of the warning lights stay on.

so all the lights that come on when you first turn the key on stay on? maybe your alternator is not working properly? or not connecting to your dash panel correctly? or maybe the engine management system has a fault in it? more likely to be a dodgy connection to your dash board.

That little truck was my first. Be good to it. It'll be good to you.

Check the relay beneath the steering column. Mine went out, too. Try to snag an OEM one, as third-party ones tend to flash too fast.

SOURCE: Alternator keeps going bad - three so far. Battery light flickering off/on now.

Having worked for an Isuzu dealer I have seen this a lot with aftermarket alternators from places like auto-zone, napa etc. For some reason they will do strange things in these vehicles. The fix was to get a Isuzu alternator. We did have good luck with Beck Arnly alternators also. We also had a local rebuilder repair some with good luck too. If all else fails get a used one.

Heater and air wont work

You probably already tried this, but have you disconnected the battery, waited a few minutes, then reconnected? That might clear the memory and reset the brain (pcm).

1990 Amigo with a 2.6 motor that dies while driving

It could be that the fuel injectors are partially clogged up. I would go to any auto parts store and get a bottle of seafoam. Pour it in the gas tank and drive it a few miles. Joe

My brake light stays on

the sensor in the handle is bad... do you have the dash mounted lever or the console (between driver and passenger seat)??

both are easy to fix...if you really feel like fixing it. My light has been on about 40,000 miles lol.
