#26 of 78 96 Rodeo reverse light on in 1st and 2nd but not on in reverse.
Apr 17, 2008 (8:51 pm)
I have a 96 Isuzu rodeo with manual transition. About a week ago I noticed that my reverse light was coming on when I was in 1st and 2nd but would not come on when I was in reverse. I donít know when it started happening, I think it may have started after I got my clutch replaced 4 months ago but hadnít noticed it because one of my reverse lights had been out anyway. Can someone tell me if this is the switch or if it could be something the mechanic did or something else? If it is infect the switch, where would it be located?

#28 of 78 Rr. Anti-lock light on
May 16, 2007 (1:00 pm)
I have a '92 Rodeo with 171K on the clock and last week the Rr. Anti-lock light came on. The red brake light is also on even with the E-brake disengaged. There is a low whine coming from the rear end that increases with speed and a rapping sound, similar to the noise a U-joint would make. I have visually inspected everything and before I tear into it, I'd like some advice as to what it might be and weather, given its age, it's worth doing. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I have a '97 rodeo with a similar issue. One day I heard a very bad squealing whenever I applied the brakes. Then it went away. Now about 3 weeks later I have the parking brake and RABS lights coming on at the same time. I've been looking around and one possibility is the rear bearrings assembly. I would also check out your rear brake shoes to make sure they're in good order.
Edit: There are two sensors to check as well, to make sure of clean contacts or possible replacement. One is the rear speed sensor. The other is the rear ABS sensor location on top of the rear differential. Make sure the contacts are clean and find out the resistance values that should be read and you can find out if they are any good by using a plain multi-meter. Another option is to go to a repair shop to get the codes diagnosed but that would cost a little more money.

I just went through this with my son's Rodeo. The cause of your Rear ABS light and the Brake light on at the same time is the Vehicle Speed/ABS sensor located in the differential of the rear end, if you have the two wheel drive. It sounds like the sensor has broken and is hitting the pick-up in the differential. This could be a major problem if not corrected quickly as it may get into the gears and cause further damage. Depending on which electrical system you have there is a way to find the diagnostic code for this, I highly recommend buying a good book. A code "9" for high resistance or code "10" for low resistance should come up for the rear ABS sensor.
The sensor is not hard to change, but is hard to find the new part. It will also cost you approximately $90.00, depending on who you know in the parts market. One bolt holds it in, it may be hard to pull out as it may have a vacuum on it, but it will come out. Once you have it out, if it's not visibly damaged, you can test it with a volt-ohm meter. It should read between 900-2000 ohms resistance on the meter. Anything other than that and it is bad. Once you replace it, crank the vehicle up and shut it down the code should clear. I hope this helps, David.

I have a 97' Isuzu Rodeo 2WD with the 3.2 V6 engine. Recently the speedometer quit working and the abs light came on. The common consensus was to replace the vss sensor on the rear differential. I have installed a new sensor and this did not correct the problem. The hand held diagnostic gives a code for low voltage from the sensor. I would appreciate any suggestions on what to try next. Thanks!

I have the same problem and i took it to a dealer. They told me it would cost $2000 for them to do it. Do i need special equipment to change it or something?

There was a recall for the anti-lock braking system early on. Maybe you can get this addressed under the recall notice.
