Well there is a module mounted on the side of the transmission (looks more like a black box) with a wire harness attached . This mod. tells the trans. what to do,but the grease inside brakes down and so the contacts are not able to make a solid connection .Sorry that I am not able to recall the name of the mod. but it is on the right side(driver) of trans.You will need to remove and take a part to clean and reinstall new grease and this will fix the jerky take offs and the indicator lights.

I have a 99 rodeo and this was a problem, but for a quick fix is to reset the computer by taking the positive cable off for a minute then put it back and this will reset and drive normal.

I'm, of course, new here and I hate for my first post to be asking for help. But I really do need it, and will be very appreciateve for any suggestions/help. Sorry for the long post, but if I'm asking for help, I try to be as detailed as possible.
Anyways, I have a 2001 Rodeo S 4x2 5 speed. Short of a couple alternators, an AC compressor and that DA%! gas gauge/sender, haven't had much trouble. Until now.
Today as I was getting off the interstate I was gear braking (my front pads are just about gone and Im trying to save the rotors until I get time this week to change them) and suddenly the clutch pedal dropped to the floor. it wasn't a gentle, floating drop either, it felt like something snapped and down it went.
I pulled to the shoulder off the exit and took a look and there was nothing leaking, nor was the master cylinder low on fluid. The pedal, itself isn't broken either. Everything seemed normal, except for the clutch being stuck at the engaged position. Once I limped to my destination right around the corner (a 5-speed with no clutch, stuck engaged is quite an interesting drive. Thank God I knew about the old "rev till it pops in gear" trick), I did some further checking.
I need to advise that I had a similar clutch problem about a year ago, but the fluid was leaking out of the slave cylinder boot slowly. I "fixed" it by zip tying the boot to seal it back on the metal part, added fluid, bled it and all has been fine. Until now. That being said, I would totally jackslap someone who drives this way for a year, without a true fix, but honestly, it's been perfect and I forgot about it.
Once I was under the transmission, I could see where fluid has been leaking out over the past year, but it doesn't seem to be leaking much, as the Master Cylinder is full. Anyways, I bled it, hoping some air somehow got in the system, but of course this did nothing. I can see the slave cylinder moving when the clutch is pressed, but it doesn't look like it's moving very far.
My question is, do you think it's the slave cylinder? I'm hoping it is, and not a clutch or pressure plate, as that would almost be prohibitively expensive. I don't even mind if it's the master cylinder as that's only like $60. I'm thinking it is the slave cylinder, seeing as I had trouble with it previously.
Any input would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!
#124 of 168 A/T tranny nightmare
Jan 11, 2011 (3:10 pm)
Ok I am new here and I have been reading the post's on the tranny problems and I have LOT'S to add. I have a 97 Rodeo 2wd. I liked it at first but now i am completely frustrated. I was losing 3rd gear and took it to a transmission repair shop that just made my problem worse. They were going to look at it and call me with what it was doing. Needless to say they took apart tranny (w/out permission) and then kept parts and put the un-assembled tranny in the back. Anyway.. I bought another tranny and put it in. Well then it would only go into first gear if i manually shifted it there. If I am in "D" it starts off in 3rd as a fail safe. So like most i assumed it was a electrical prob and replaced the shift sensor, well that didn't fix it. Then the shift silinoid. That didn't fix the problem either. I dont get it I am going to look at the other shift sensor that looks like a black box to check the grease when i get home but really need suggestions. I can manually shift it but not in Drive plz help.

I have a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4 and today for the first time a saw a gren light come on that shows all 4 wheels, the front ones directed to one side. As I have no owners manual, I have no idea what this means. Can anyone educate me in this mysterious light for me? (which is probably a common sense one for most of you). I just never saw one. Thanks.

#129 of 168 What could this problem be???
Feb 16, 2011 (7:31 am)
I have a 2002 Rodeo with 81,000 miles and an automatic transmission. Just recently I have had problems with the thumb switch on the gear shift. Today I couldn't hardly push it in to get the car out of park. I had to fidget with it by trying to push it about 50 times while wiggling the gear shift back and forth to get it to work. Any suggestions/answers? Thanks for any help. (I know it is not the sensor that is connected to the brakes because the brake lights still come on when I engage the brake to try to get it out of park.)
