Question about 2003 Isuzu Rodeo Sport
Did the check engine light come on and are all the flild levels like their supposed to be? oil, coolant, trans fluild? Has the car had any recent service? You describe that the trans only operates in Low gear. does the car back up Ok? Does the battery have the normal amout of cranking power? If the altenator quit the systems would go into limp in but the check engine light should have come on. Do you have a scanner? If you don't show up at most major auto parts stores and they'll hook a code reader to the computer and see what the systems are complaining about. the neutral saftey switch is on the side of the transmission and it's connected to the shaft that shifts the gears if it's not reporting what gear is selected to the transmission controller then it will only use low gaer. The neural switch is affected by trans fluild leaking into it so if it appears to have some trans fluild on it ( even a little bit the switch may have failed) The auto parts store may be able to see what the codes are. if an EGR code or overheating code is in the system and you may be able ( with the scanner or code reader) to clear the codes and it'll work normally. if the codes return then they need to be addressed and the problem corrected, Overheating the switch and speedsenser problems ( Is the ABS light on?) willl make the trans not shift and fluild problems Leaks and burnt up are also possible. The fuses all have to be good you wouldn't think that the cigar lighter fuse has to be good for it to shift gears correctly but it does.
