I pulled into work this morning and I can't turn my truck completely
off. I can kill the engine but I can't turn the key any farther back in
the switch, so I can't kill the interior power. I guess I'm going to
unhook the battery for a temporary solution, but is this something I can
repair myself? I'm thinking that it's probably beyond my capabilities
(and I've never been able to find one of those books like a Haynes
manual for my truck), but there isn't a Isuzu dealer for at least 60
This problem most likely is the result of the position of the gear shifter
being just slightly out of position. Try moving the gear shifter from drive
to park a few times.
Before you try this, look at the drive position gauge on the dash, and see
if it looks just a bit off. I bet it does.
Actually I've tried restarting the truck and driving around and then
putting it back into park. I've also tried adjusting the tilt on the
steering wheel, turning it off in neutral, turning the steering wheel as
I turn the key, and last but not least... kicking the steering column...
but nothing works.
Thanks for the tip... but unfortunately:
The Repair Guide for your 1998 ISUZU TRUCK RODEO 2WD 6 Cylinders 03165 W
3.2L MFI DOHC is not available at this time. We're adding more repair
guides every week, so check back soon
I seriously don't think anyone has made a repair manual for the 1998+
line of Rodeo's, at least if they have I can't find it.
I purchased a repair cd rom on Ebay that covers my 99 rodeo for
around $20. It is not as good as a Haynes but is better than
nothing. It has wiring diagrams, troubleshootering steps, etc.
It even had programming directions for the keyless remote that I
also purchased on Ebay. Can you believe I purchased the remote
That's a steal at $11, I'll have to check out Ebay! I actually emailed
Haynes and they said that the didn't feel that enough of the 98 and
above Isuzu's had been sold to merit a book. I don't know who does
their research, but I'm thinking that they must have graduated at the
bottom of their class.
