Loose or corroded battery cables. Also possibly a bad starter solenoid or starter. Clean and tighten battery terminals. If it still does this, remove the starter and have it tested at any auto parts store.

Hope that helps.......

My 2001 isuzu rodeo has been failing to start. Anti theft arms w door opened


Need more detail to figure out what you are talking about. Failing to start? Does engine turn over but will not run or engine does not turn over? What do you mean by, "now it's the anti-theft"? Thumping noise from rear of what?

Isuzu rodeo brakes will not stop vehicle


check brake pads for thickness and discs for condition (both sides). Have it taken to an accredited brake shop for a full evalution of why the system has failed.

I have a 97 isuzu rodeo, starter just clicks, had this problem before and i adjusted the neutral switch and it started, now it doesn't start even after adjustment. how can i know if the neutral switch...


This may actually be a problem with the starter solenoid and not the neutral safety switch. If when you try to start the vehicle and you are only getting a clicking, then I would replace the starter solenoid which is typically found on the passenger side firewall. If not there, then on the starter itself.

2001 isuzu rodeo doesnt always start. new


Dirty terminals, happens all the time. Did you have the battery tested? Or just know it's OK? Did you check the water? How about the electrolytes? Get the terminals cleaned off with a wire brush, and scrape the insides, make sure they are tight. I have replaced more batteries this week, must be the weather. One was stone dead, 5 volts and still started the car?? Couldn't believe it, good car. The other 2 were dead with 12+ volts but wouldn't start anything, both got new terminals, and both got cleaned up. NO problems. Check it out. Lastly, the solenoid in the starter could be bad if everything else checks out, whack it with a hammer while turning the key, if it jumps, you found it.

Wont start starter just makes a click when you turn key also the rodeo shifter moves without putting on brake


possibly shift interlock system needs adjustment or replaced .this is a connection between transmission and ignition key lock cylinder . which is why youre able to shift w/o applying brakes and wont start. try to start n neutral.

Hi, I have a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo. Runs great, but lately, one time out of 10 it wont start. I can hear the relay, but it doesn't even try and turn over. Then i Put it in neutral, or rock the truck and it...


If shifting into neutral works you may have a damaged parking safety switch. Some vehicles have one for neutral and one for park.

Be sure to check your battery and starting system too. A weak battery or worn starter solenoid are also likely causes.

Good luck and be careful!

1999 Isuzu trooper wont start everything works lights, guages but makes no noise when key is turned to start it , could it be neutral safety switch in shifter?


If you hear a click when the ignition is turned but no start its a high possibility that its the starter or the wiring going to and from the starter. Hope this helps! ~Derek~
