Isuzu Trooper, SUV
#8998 of 11964 Consumer Reports cleared??
Dec 22, 2003 (2:42 pm)
Doesn't sound like they were "cleared" to me, they just didn't have to pay damages. Sorta like OJ, being found "not guilty" is NOT the same as being "innocent":
"April 10, 2000 -- Verdict on Consumer Reports: false, but not damaging. After a two-month trial, a federal jury found Thursday that the magazine had made numerous false statements in its October 1996 cover story assailing the 1995-96 Isuzu Trooper sport utility vehicle as dangerously prone to roll over, but declined to award the Japanese carmaker any cash damages. The jury found that CR's "testing" had put the vehicle through unnatural steering maneuvers which, contrary to the magazine's claims, were not the same as those to which competitors' vehicles had been subjected. Jury foreman Don Sylvia said the trial had left many jurors feeling that the magazine had behaved arrogantly, and that eight of ten jurors wanted to award Isuzu as much as $25 million, but didn't because "we couldn't find clear and convincing evidence that Consumers Union intentionally set out to trash the Trooper". The jury found eight statements false but in only one of the eight did it determine CR to be knowingly or recklessly in error, which was when it said: "Isuzu ... should never have allowed these vehicles on the road." However, it ruled that statement not to have damaged the company, despite a sharp drop in Trooper sales from which the vehicle later recovered."

First for future reference for the rest of us where was the pack? How much do you have to move out of the way? How long did it take?
As to you current problem, I have not chased this problem myself. With that out of the way I did find this on the web http://www.nichols.nu/tip022.htm It discusses several potential fixes (e.g. bad fan, another sensor, connections) other than the resistor pack. Granted this is not Isuzu specific but it might help you nonetheless.
#9001 of 11964 Yup what SDC2 said

CR was NOT cleared, Isuzu just didn't win any $ or anything
#9002 of 11964 ostaz - blower
Dec 22, 2003 (6:47 pm)
On pretty much any vehicle, high speed on the blower fan is straight 12V. All other speeds are reduced voltage via the resistors.
Wish I could tell you why it reverted back to high after replacing the resistors, but I don't really know. Is your voltage regulator working properly?
#9003 of 11964 Remote re-program

Who's got those instructions on how to re-program the remote door opener for late model Troopers? I need to re-program due to case coming apart.
#9005 of 11964 Park Distance Control
Dec 24, 2003 (9:20 am)
I decided to install PDC system on my Trooper with a plastic tire cover ( previous had a soft one). Just wanted to be sure that the nice cover wouldn't be broken if the truck was being parked. So the PDC Coligen DX-4700 ( I've never heard this name before) with four implanted in the rear bumper sensors works fine. Four-colored small monitor is located on a dashboard. The red light means the truck is going close to something. Very primitive and cheap.
#9006 of 11964 Thanks paisan...

I did find the instructions on your website. What a handy support reference for Trooper users!!
#9007 of 11964 Fan speed on HI only....
Dec 24, 2003 (4:42 pm)
sounds like your fan is drawing too much current. It may be about to fail, but its pulling so much current that its shorting out the resistor pack when you 1st changed it out. It may be internal to the motor winding, or something else in the circuit. Maybe a low resistance to ground on that line??
