#11712 of 11966 Door Power Locks
Mar 24, 2008 (4:55 am)
i have a 2000 isuzu trooper and all of a sudden from out of nowhere, my power locks on the doors wont lock. They will all unlock both from the remote and the inside door unlock switches, however they wont lock either way. I manually have to lock the doors. Any help / suggestions?
Also does anyone know a place to get the speed sensors (auto 4wd TOD) for the trooper other than from the dealer?

Thanks for the advice. I eased into, everything fine with the timing belt. Decided to pull motor and found a spun rod bearing on #1 cylinder. Now if i can found out how to remove timing belt with out losing the timing settings, i will remove the crank and have it turned and install new bearings and put this thing back on the road.

The passenger power seat stopped working where the driver seat works fine. Any ideas if it has its' own fuse or what could be the problem?

Check the connection under the seat where the electrics plug in.

Offhand, I don't know the size, but I would guess either 1/4" or 5/16". Just measure it at the exposed steel line.....if you don't have calipers or a micrometer, you should be able to eyeball the size with a tape measure from the bottom. HTH

Hi, it would help to know how many miles and what type of transmission is in your vehicle. The symptoms you describe could be attributed to poor gasoline, failing timing belt/pusher and possibly a bad steering pump or alternator, so any information like service to trans, parts replaced, etc; will help generate interest in helping diagnose the problem.

I was laughing hard reading your post especially the "dragging" part
I think that, realistically, only H2s, Monteros, and older Kia Sorentos can edge the Trooper (though very slightly) in how much gas they use.

I have a 2000 Trooper LS. My gas mileage averages from a low of 16.5 to as high as 18.5. Not bad for a large, heavy box. The numbers have run about the same over 130,000 miles. Mine is 2wd and it seems that 4wd or TOD versions might get about 1 MPG less on average.
Have you had the brakes checked? If you have a bad caliper that is dragging, that could really hurt the mileage. Have spark plugs ever been changed? They are good for 100K miles max. Also probably need to check that they are the correct ones. Reports of changing to non-specified plugs can cause problems. You might also try some fuel system cleaner, either have it done or run several batches of injector cleaner through.
Is your Trooper displaying a CEL? If so, code from that might point to a problem.
