Question about 1996 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

Click, Click, before it starts

I have a 1996 2wd isuzu rodeo. For the past week it would drag or hang before it started. While deployed wife said that she had the battery filled on the last oil change and when I checked the fluid was low again, so I went and replaced the battery. After replacing the battery the same thing; it would drag or hang as it would start. I then thought it was the starter. So I went to Auto Zone and replaced the starter. As soon as I connected the battery, after replacing the starter I tried to start it then there was a "Click". All the lights were good and the battery was strong. I tuned the key again three times and again "Click, click, click, then it started. I turned off the truck and tried it again and the same click, click, then it would start. I am sure that the clicking sound is the starter getting the power from the battery to turn over, but I dont know why the click, click, start is happening? Thanks for your help.

Sounds like starter relay or solenoid.

Could be your fuel pump failing. Try this; turn ign key to "on", not "start" then off after 5 seconds. Do this several times then try "start". If it starts right up this time, your fuel pump could be going bad, or the fuel pressure is dropping for whatever reason.

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.

Electrical problem?


if you have an automatic transmission, check to see that the lock up torque converter is not stuck in the lock up mode at idle.
