    DDE light indicates a problem with the fuel injection system. Have the car scanned for fault codes, as these may indicate the specific problem.

Start with the safety interlock. If you have an automatic transmission, put your foot on the brake and shift thru the gears while holding the key to start. If the engine cranks, adjust or replace the safety interlock switch.
If you have a standard transmission, remove the cable from the switch above the clutch pedal and connect the terminals in the connector with a paper clip, then push in clutch and try to start. If that works, replace the switch.

If the problem is not the interlock, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

It's a electrical problem as when you turn the key nothing happens so first thing is get a multimeter and check the starter motor has power when you go to start the engine , check both terminals to and from the battery good luck colin

It may start the engine fine, meaning it has a good ground, BUT, the ground from battery to the body is NOT. Make sure that connection is good and clean.

Check the wire harness to the starter solenoid, the wires could have a break in it or the solenoid could also be bad. The heat of the engine could be causing the solenoid to fail till it cools down. Try that first, good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

96 Isuzu Rodeo electrical problems (Car wont start)


It has to be an electrical connection as you say. The Anti Lock Brake system light is probably just a deprograming of the computer. Due to the electrical problem. Have you check for current at the starter ? Have sombody turn the key as if starting it. Then with a test light check for current at the starter connections. This will give you an idea whre to look for an open circuit or short.
