ok... due to bad design... its your turn signal switch on the colum... if you pull the steering wheel off, and push down on the contacts the signals should work... there is a stupid plastic pin inside the handle that rocks the contacts into place depending on what direction you choose...How do I know this? I have a 92 rodeo with a 3.1 with the same problem... I try to rig it to make it work and it only works for a week or so... then it dies... POS... just bad design.. I think its like 100 from NAPA...

I have a 1994 Rodeo and had the same problem with the turn signal not working and making a buzzing noise. Based on some research, I found out it was a turn signal switch but I wasn't willing to spend $200 (I've already spent far too much on this car already). Instead I figured I would get some electrical contact/cleaner spray and shoot it on the switch. I knew the switch was located somewhere in the steering wheel column but I didn't want to remove the steering wheel so I squirted in the opening by the turn signal. It took a few times but it worked. The spray should be at most electrical parts stores. I picked mine up at Radio Shack for $10.
Hope that helps.

I have checked all 4 ambers and they all work when I turn my lights on. However, my turn signals nor the hazards work. Has anyone else experienced this? I've checked fuses and relays and they are fine. I actually even replaced them.

So there have been several issues with my 2000 4WD Isuzu Rodeo over the past couple days. I noticed it on Friday when I was driving home from work. The battery and break light were both on when I started to drive out of the parking garage. Before I was halfway home they both went out. The same thing happened on Sunday...but the lights went out before I was on the highway. Today I noticed the same light problem but they dimmed and started to flicker rather then go out completely. Also, there seemed to be something up with the transmission. It worked fine in reverse, but as soon as i put it in drive it was hesitant. When I was started to go from a stop at a light, it started to go okay and then it felt like someone put the brakes on briefly, and then it released. I got home and parked it in the driveway. My roommate had to move it to go to the gym, and he mentioned the same thing about drive not feeling right. I went outside about 30 min ago to move it back into the driveway because we are suppose to get another big snow storm tonight....and as i was pulling up the street to turn around all the emergency indicator lights came on, the speedometer and tachometer didn't move and the odometer went blank. I put on the flashers and all the lights on the dashboard started to blink with the flashers. It sounded like it was running real rough as I pulled into the driveway. I turned it off, but then realized I should look under the hood with it running and tried to start it...it wouldn't turn over.
The first thing I tried was to check the battery. With the car off, it has 11.8 V across the negative and positive terminals. I then checked all the fuses and they all seemed okay. I can't tell about the relays. I am thinking may be some sort of electrical problem causing all the light and the transmission issues. Now that it wont start I don't know what to do. Any/all suggestions would be appreciated
#54 of 78 1993 isuzu rodeo

Hi guys, first time poster. I have a 93 rodeo. It was obviously 4wheel drive at one point in its life. It lacks a front differential, but it still has the 4wd shift nob inside and when i shift into 4hi or 4 low It feels like its trying to engage. How can I tell if its just gonna take a new front end or if I would have to completely replace the entire transmission to make it 4 wheel drive once again. Sorry if this is an obvious question I am not a car guy but I'm trying to become one.

Probably a bad battery and/or alternator. Many auto parts stores will test both for free. I would jump start it and take to to a place that will test the battery and alt.
