if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille which should give you access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lever aside to release the hood
Hope this helps

I don't know the correct test proceedure to idenify the problem before you
purchase a switch In more cases than not the problem with the turn lights on the rodeo's comes down to a bad turn switch. Before spending $150.00 fo the part, I would check fuses which you did, check the flasher,
check the bulbs, it would more than likley not be that all of the bulbs are
inoperative but stranger things have happened. I fou are hady with a 12 volt light tester you may be able to check to make sure that you have power going to the switch, this would be easy if you can removed the stearing wheel and the plastic shroud around the collum as the wires and contacts are on the left side.
To be honest, Ididn't run any test as i was sure that the switch was bad from viewing the posts on the forum and several of them had the same issues.
I just bought a 92 too around three weeks ago and the left turn signal made noise sometimes as it would make a regular blinker noise, but most of the time it would buzz when you turned the left turn signal on. The light on the dash would not work as well. There are several post on the fourm about bad switches and they seem to be a problem for this vehicle.
I tired to find a used one but could not. I purchased one on line from the Partswarehouse and installed it yesterday and everything works as it should.
There is one phillips head screw on the back side of the horn pad to remove and the horn pad should slide off, unhook the horn ground wire
Remove the steering wheel retaining locknut. I was able to bump the back side of the steering wheel with the palm of my hand around 4 times firmly and the steering wheel popped off. In some cases you may have to rent a wheel puller from Advanced Auto or Autozone if you run into difficulty.
Remove the plastic cover from the column , there are around 6 phillips head screws on the under side and the casing has two clips one each side the should snap out with a little pressure.
Remove the two screws form the Turn switch and unhook the harness plug and then reverse the proceedure to install the new switch.
This took me approximately 30 minutes to replace from start to finish,

Unfortunately if the soleniod is on the starter, and it is clicking, then the circuilts to the starter are probably fine, and it leaves the starter itself as the main suspect.
One thing you can do is to turn the engine over a little by hand, under the hope that maybe the starter bendix gear is jamming on the flywheel. With different positioning it may unjamb.
The next would be to check battery voltage. If you have a meter, it should be about 12.5 volts before starting, and about 10 during. It is does not drop then it is the soleniod itself. It if drops below 9 volts, it is likely the battery. If you don't have a meter, you can just turn on the lights to get some idea, because the lights should dim while trying to start, but not go out completely.
If you decide it is the soleniod and want to try fixing it yourself, it is not hard to take the starter off and remove the soleniod. Bascially the solenoid is a large electro-magnet, that thows a steel rod, pushing the main starter contact switch, and throwing out the starter gear. The contacts can be burnt or oily and need cleaning. Or the shaft can be adjustale, reaching gear limts before making switch contact. The solenoid shaft usually has loop on its end, that goes over a lever that throws the gear out.
