I'm not so sure about the "diesel" as the reason for the switch difference,
although one can never tell. The trooper was sold as several other vehicles,
including in the USA, an Acura and maybe some others. I believe, besides the
"nameplate", that the other areas tampered with in selling it (and other
cross labeled vehicles) under a different label are the interior upholstery
and other cosmetics and the interior lighting - probably including the
controls for that lighting. I find one of my frustrations is with the lack
of electrical outlets in the vehicle. My wife's GM vehicle has two outlets
on the dash and another in the rear, all of which are unswitched. My trooper
has a single switched outlet in the dash. When I contacted Isuzu about the
poor electricals, they were obtuse about it. But I finally figured out from
the person taking the call that since my trooper had 3 years of free
roadside service, they didn't want a bunch of calls for rundown batteries.
