Question about 1996 Isuzu Trooper

1 Answer

Ignition Key Stuck

My ignition key is stuck in my 1996 Isuzu Trooper. I can start the car and it goes all the way to the off position. It is just one small click from the lock position to free the key. Some folks are saying it is a Shifter Interlock Solenoid problem and some other folks are saying it is in the shifter. Do you have any ideas where the problem could be?

    I cannot get the key to come out of the ignition switch. The radio would not come on a day or so ago, and now I wonder if the problem is related.

We had the same problem, with the same diagnosis. It turned out to be that the shifter was not fully forward in the park position!

The mechanics we called said it was the Shifter Interlock Solenoid as well (but an honest mech. actually solved the prob. - by pushing the shifter all the way forward - and didn't charge a dime).

Anti theft shorted out.

You should look for the alarm fuse and relay and replace them.
Is it the factory alarm or what brand?

1995 isuzu trooper how to disarm security system with out key fob

put the key in the ignition and turn to the "On" position. Once one of the doors is opened you have about 30 seconds (you should hear a "tick-tock" sound as it counts down) to put the key in the ignition and turn it to on. If you open the rear gate, the alarm will immediately sound (this is by design). You can buy new fob's online for $40-60 each, google how to reset them.

I can't start my truck. The key is in the lock

The problem is most likely in the key ignition itself. There is a rod that goes from the key ignition down the column to a set of switches (depending on the make, model, and year) that could jam or your switch assembly could simply be broken. The most simple thing could be that your key and key ignition is so worn that the teeth on the key simply wont align the tumblers anymore. Hope this helps.

1996 isuzu trooper steering wheel won't unlock

Firstly, if your steering wheel will rotate about an inch, while in the locked position, do the following:

1) swing the wheel as far as it goes, then hold it tightly in position (it may want to return back to position, butdon't let it go!)

2) insert key into ignition, and turn key to "ON", not start.

3) see if steering wheel will now release...

Please advise if this works...

If no, then need to go to next step...

Await your response....

1988 Isuzu trooper steering column locked... n key's missing :(

sort of a solution. if you can get the ignition to turn to the off position there is a pin under it you can push and pull the whole thing out and start it with a screwdriver. or you can take out one screw from behind the ignition on the little black thing and you can start it with anything. i'm not sure if that will unlock the steering column though. hope this helps
