I thought I had battery issues...Rodeo would start up fine...next
time...click and engine would not turnover...Had the parts place do a
check(hard charge on the battery) battery is fine...Did the turn the lights
on then the wipers...no dimming of the lights...What I was wondering... a
year ago my clutch switch went south(standard transmission Rodeo)they were
out of switches...so a auto repair guy bypassed the switch with a "jump
wire"...Said jumper appears to be still secure and intact...so... do I have
a clutch switch jumper,or s ignition switch issue? or just what? Help! I
need this Rodeo to get to the cabin in bad weather...
If you're hearing a clicking as you hit the ignition but no engine turning
over sounds...my guess would be a starter going out. I just had that
happen with my Dodge Caravan. Very intermittent...then it did it last week
while I was at the repair shop paying for work done on our Trooper - they
came out and diagnosed it (after a having it a week and not getting it to
act up) as a failing starter.
That's what I fear...I have a Chilton and a Haynes book but neither show
where the starter is...I put the Rodeo up on jacks and I still can't find
it...(I was going to clean the connects and hope I could get it((Rodeo))
down to some repair place ...I do a lot of my own repairs but I've not done
a starter...I've heard the newer Rodeo's starters are a *itch to change
