holy moly, r guacamole
a near record breaking wall of text!
2001 trooper, no engine stated, why?
automatic trans or stick shifted, main box,.>??
ASB needs service, scanned, i'd bet $100 you cant.
ABS needs good brakes, too.
NO ABS works right ,say if pad is gone or sliders jammed
car needs a full brake inspection,not doing a 10 page wall of text there, not ever on brakes (sure sensor wires damaged, so look first)?
never ask how much to fix it,
you never even to country;/state or if in Canada.
ask your REPAIR shop, prices vary by parts costs
and labor rates, WORLD WIDE< or even STATE WIDE.
TOD is a complex system
if you bought the service manual
you'd see its Unique to Isuzu, and most shops will not understand it.
(both rare and Unique)
why own a car from a bugged out ISUZU,,
they dont sell cars here now. none. gone.
id buy the SM
book, and keep in the car so your mechanic
and read it...
bad mounts, find real shop this time, ASE
Goggle find "ASE SHOP BY ZIP"
WIN (usa )
NO THE CAR IS NOT DIY FRIENDLY! sorry.
IT'S NO TOYOTA COROLLA, 40MILLION SOLD!
We are blind here and deaf.
we cant drive your car, ever. and see all that
all cars are complex machines and need HANds on
diagnoses, and tests driven.'
find a real shop,that can do all that, and not look at you
and say,undriven, that normal.! (if true they sux)
Id' sell it and buy real jeep, not a(1/2 Mitsubishi /jeep POS)
then shops can see it and fix it. they know it.
this car you have is NOT common and TOD is not known in shops, they look at it and go../... oMG.
no lie ,TOD was good back when.
a smart design and system.
but this is 2017, most shops never seen one ever.
unless you can find some old guy(gay hair)
my guess one of 9 SENSORS/switches ARE BAD,OR THE SHIFT MOTOR ON TOD IS BAD.
AND BAD MOUNTS.
LETS DO THE SUMMATION:
BAD BRAKES, ABS UPSET, OR BOTH.
What that costs can exceed value of car in that condition.
or could be all easy fixes
only diagnosis finds truth and costs are based only on
your Realities.)(as in what really was bad)
Why not fix brakes first
leaking fuel 1st 1st
brakes 2nd, get the brakes fixed
Id sell it but if love is in the car(why) then find
a real ASE SHOP AND BREAK OUT THAT VISA CARD
Me grandpappy said!
never put a $100 saddle on a $5 horse.
rings true ,even today.
