Chris (I'm assuming),
Thanks a million for this post. I've been looking at this ABS issue on my 1999 Rodeo 4x4 for a while, and have been waiting to find a post that enabled me to fix it myself. Sure enough, I went about the rear differential, found the ABS sensor, cleared the contact points.........wasn't getting a good charge. Per your post, I followed the electric up to a junction point just in front of the rear driver side tire...I looked close...and there it was...a 3-wire set...(orange, brown, and white)...and the white cable was broken off. Did a similar pig-tail splicing game....and sure enough...ABS light turned off after 100 ft of sub 10 mph driving...
Anyways, wanted to explicitly say thank you for sharing your knowledge. This has helped me fix one of my more major annoyances with my Rodeo with only 92k miles on it...now if I could only fix the damn gas gauge!! =)

I have a 96' Rodeo LS and did the ABS sensor and that didn't change a thing, going to do the jumper to the DTC to read the codes. At the same time I'll do the cable check to see if the connector is broken.
The three wire set, does it matter if you have a 2wd or 4wd vehicle?
I want to get this fixed, its annoying.
#19 of 26 Isuzu Rodeo, 2004, speedometer and cruise not working
Dec 24, 2009 (5:04 pm)
My speedometer went haywire and now stopped or intermittently works, cruise switch does not work and check engine light came on. Been searching net for places to purchase the transmission mounted Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS); however, I can find no where to purchase, either new or used. My vehicle is 2004 Isuzu Rodeo, 3.5 liter V6, Automatic, 2 wheel drive. Any help on how to repair or where to purchase would be greatly appreciated.

I will be chasing some wires before i replace the ABS sensor... Thanks. As far as your fuel gauge goes... i had the same problem and i replaced the liquid level sensor ( i think it was like $20.00) on the fuel pump and it fixed it right up... It does involve dropping the tank and removing the fuel pump but the juice is worth the squeeze. Good luck

Is your gas gauge going from Full to Empty with 3/4 of tank left? I replaced my fuel sending unit thanks to this site: Replacing the Fuel Sending Unit on a 2nd Gen Isuzu Rodeo(honda passport). Its a great step by step tutorial more or less with great pictures to help you out. I bought a new unit off ebay for about 20 bucks as well. Its not that difficult:
- just be sure to use up as much gas as you can so the gas tank isn't so heavy when you ease it off, you can siphon the rest out yourself before putting it back on and fill-er-up when your done.
-tank is only held by 4 bolts, easily accessable with a raised vehicle from the rear(take off spare tire if its mounted under the vehicle), hardest part i found was initially wiggling the hoses off the tank. other then that just put a jack w/some plywood(or something to brace it) under the tank when taking off the 4 bolts, ease it down, unplug fuel pump(and hoses going to fuel pump), replace unit and put it back on, reconnect hoses(only 3 of them if i remember correctly, refer to the link above).
annoying gas gauge fixed (totally worth 20bucks and some spare time).
