Question about 1999 Isuzu Amigo
Ignition switch is bad.
Posted on May 26, 2017
When I have such a problem with my Toyota pickup, I install a button in dash to crank the motor over. Hot wire from the switch on to the button, then from the button to the starter activating wire. My Toy doesn't do this every time, but when it won't crank I just reach down and flip the spring center switch, same as a button, and she cranks and fires up. This is easier than replacing a bunch of stuff that may not be bad or is impossible to get to.

you're having the same problem i had with my 99 isuzu rodeo 2 wd 3.2 i paid a muffler guy over $600 to replace those catalytic converters, if you're good at welding you could do the welding yourself after buying the catalytics, basiclly i seen them just cut them off and welded them back on

Could be one of two things.
1. Your starter motor is no good.
2. If you turn on your lights and try to start the car and they dim to almost black, then you need to check the battery connections.

SOURCE: fuel pump relay
The fuel pump relay is located in the relay box under the hood. This box is located near the battery. The fuel pump relay's location is marked on the lid to this relay box. If your lid is missing, it is the relay just outboard of the pink 30 amp Maxi Fuse.

Do a compression test on all the cylinders and see if the rocker arms are adjusted to the right. If the compression is bad then there will be no power at all and if the Rocker arms need adjustments you could be losing some power there too.
You can try cleaning out the engine from the inside out. I have done this many times when I buy a use car. I run Marvel Mystery Oil with the engine oil for about 4 months and keep an eye on the oil level. Marvel is a thinner oil and clean out the inside by removing the carbon collected and oil sludge inside the engine.
You may end up having to replace the oil pressure sensor, it seams to always be the first to go bad and may get some oil leaks. But once the engine is cleaned up you'll have a better understanding on the condition on the engine and be surprised on how well it runs after.
Just keep an eye on the oil level and change the oil and filter to free up the engine, then use the recommended oil and add Lucas oil and or Restor to help the loose of compression.
The loud tapping tells me that your not getting the oil to the top of the engine and that may be a bad oil pump but it may also be a plugged oil pump screen and the Marvel Mystery oil will clean up the oil screen.
Good luck and hope this helps, Keep me posted on your Rodeo.
