If the engine is turning over,youre either not getting fuel or not getting spark,my dad's mistubishi had the same symptoms as yours,i found that his distributer is bad but there can still be other bad components, cam and or crank sensor, bad ECM, or no compression due to a bad head

Tow it to a mechanic, from the sound of it it's something wrong with the inside of your engine, which will be a ***** to fix. It's not the battery if it's turning over, You could be out of gas, as dumb as that sounds, some people don't check it. But I guess you would have known after 4 months of this. So right now I'm blathering about an obvious answer while you're reading this thinking to yourself "Who is this idiot and why does he know what I'm thinking?" Now, if you're still reading, I just want you to know that I also have an Isuzu Rodeo and that's what I would do. Get a mechanic to hook up a machine to it and check the entire engine out, then from there struggle to not get screwed over by any mechanic that thinks it's a good idea to over charge.

Hope it helps. . .

It could be a few things with out having the car here it's hard to say but what I would do it put a isolator switch off the battery so it won't run the battery flat until problem found

Isuzu rodeo wont start makes a clickin noise when trying to start

It either the battery is too weak to turn it over, or the starter is bad. More than likely its just a weak battery. The lights may seem fine but they don't need as much power as the starter.

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.

2001 isuzu rodeo doesnt always start. new

Dirty terminals, happens all the time. Did you have the battery tested? Or just know it's OK? Did you check the water? How about the electrolytes? Get the terminals cleaned off with a wire brush, and scrape the insides, make sure they are tight. I have replaced more batteries this week, must be the weather. One was stone dead, 5 volts and still started the car?? Couldn't believe it, good car. The other 2 were dead with 12+ volts but wouldn't start anything, both got new terminals, and both got cleaned up. NO problems. Check it out. Lastly, the solenoid in the starter could be bad if everything else checks out, whack it with a hammer while turning the key, if it jumps, you found it.

1999 Isuzu trooper wont start everything works lights, guages but makes no noise when key is turned to start it , could it be neutral safety switch in shifter?

If you hear a click when the ignition is turned but no start its a high possibility that its the starter or the wiring going to and from the starter. Hope this helps! ~Derek~
