Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

1996 Isuzu Rodeo ran yesterday, will not start this morning. I turn the key and get a "click" from under the dash on the lower right side, that is all (I assume this is a relay or something). Thinking it might be the battery, I tried jumping it with the same result. The battery is nearly new, and had good power when I out a meter on it (12.8V). For reference, this model apparently came with the factory installed alarm system. Any ideas?

If you are sure that your battery connection to the starter motor itself is good, then it's the solenoid on top of the starter motor. To replace it, you have to take out the starter motor and take it apart - not an entirely easy task. Alternatively, you can get a reconditioned starter motor which is a lot easier.

The relay should be located inside the vehicle on the drivers side, under the dash right above the kick panel. below is a picture of what it will look like but yours may be a different color but the shape should be the same. I hope this helps and good luck.

Where is the starter located?

All starters are usually on the same side of the engine as the battery under the exhaust manifold and the positive battery cable usually goes right to it.
