TOD light blinking means the TOD is sending a fault code. have the dealer check it out.

You can switch from 2WD to TOD-HI, at any speed below 50 MPH.

If you want to switch to TOD-LOW, you have to stop the car, put the transmission in Neutral, then turn the dial to TOD-LOW. When you switch out of LOW, do the same.

Why is my 4L light flashing?

using 4wd on dry pavement. 2003 Rodeo !
part time is for dirt or ice roads only.
so are you using 4L on pavement, yes, then dont if car is part time.
post your vin or tell what 4wd system you have.
do you have TOD option?, Torque on demand.
so do post what wheels (tires) are touching, in 4L.
if in 4L. now.
we cant guess road surfaces...
if attempting PT on dry roads, stop doing so.
or you will windup the driveline and damage it.

i cant find the options list on Rodeos. seems 2wd or part time.
here is how TOD works, and is totally different that PART TIME.

i think this is not an option for Rodeo. but specs are weak... IMO
see the 4 wheels here, this TOD,

04 Isuzu rodeo 4x4 light blinking does not engage in 4x4 high or low.

or optional TOD, ?
if using part time 4wd?
that simple systems needs , ice on road or offroad
so DO tell what tires are touching>?
the car is no AWD.
the rules for using it is in the operators guide,
read that?
if on dry pavement (no ice) the transmission will not like
using 4wd, there is no center differential and will bind up.
test it on dirt or ice, first. work now>?

using PT, system one tire must bie on a slippery surface, or it will wind up. or lockup or fail to shift,just like read jeeps do , with PT 4wd. (owned 6)

Tod light on

If the light blinks and then goes out while starting the vehicle, you are fine. It is a self-check for diagnostics. If the light turns on and stays on, even when not moving, then you have a system fault and need to take it to a dealership (that is, if you could find one to fix it...) If the light goes on and then goes off while driving, and you are in a low-traction environment (like heavy rain, or snow, for example) then you are fine. The computer is just telling you it is doing its Torque-On-Demand thing. As a helpful hint, might be a good idea to read your owner's manual.

Dashboard red lights

Your ABS Computer is likely failing. They have problems with the solder joints on the circuit board, causing a code to be set and the lights to come on. Very common on this vehicle!

My 01 Trooper had problems with the TOD starting last winter. When the switch on the dash is engaged the TOD indicator flashes continually at 4hz but the check lite does not come on. I have vacuum at the...

We have a 1998 Trooper that had the same problem. The fix was an electronic switch for the 4WD - a vacuum sensor - on the front axle that just plugs in. You can see it - if you look under the car from the front, it's mounted in the middle of the front axle. It cost $175 from the dealer. We had somebody install it for $50. Don't know where you live, but they are exposed and can corrode. That's what happened to ours. Good luck - hope it's the same problem. This was an easy fix, and we were pleased.
