I had a jeep Cherokee with a missing drive shaft. Turned out that the previous owner had bent it and took it off. A new drive shaft was all it needed.
Check the CV-Joint boots for cracks and install a drive shaft. You can probably get one from a salvage yard pretty cheap. It will either work or not.
#57 of 78 2002 Isuzu Rodeo - Engine Cranks But Won't Start
Jul 15, 2009 (6:24 am)
SUV has been virtually problem free for 125K miles (7 years). It has had all regular maintenance performed, esp. timing belt replacement, recent tune up, etc.
After a lot of water was dumped on hood of car, (don't ask, but engine was cold), the engine would crank but not start. (key would stay in crank mode unless turned back). I believe that this is normal, key should go back after ignition. Not?
Fuel Pump is ok. Local mechanic is looking at computer run ignition system but after two days still has no idea what is wrong.
Any ideas? Remember this Rodeo has been better than great until now.

#60 of 78 Help with changing bulb

hello everyone, I am trying to get to the brake light bulb on the driver side. i have heard there are 4 screws to get the cover off. I can find the two on the outside but am having trouble finding the others.
My question is how do i access the bulb.
on a side note. the brake light works when the headlights are off and doesn;'t when the headlights are on.

#63 of 78 Up-shift indicator light PROBLEMS
Oct 10, 2010 (11:18 pm)
A while ago I had to get the clutch replaced in my 1993 Rodeo (V6-3.2L). After the work was done I noticed that the up-shift light stayed on when I was in 5th gear (not right). After years of driving this vehicle I was accustumed to the light and somethimes relied on it to remind me to up-shift to 5th gear (hard to explain). So now I was always thinking that I needed to up-shift. I took it back several times to have this corrected, but they were never able to get it right. They said they had called other garages and even the dealership, but were unable to make it work like it was supposed to. finally they offered me a discount on the original work, which I had not payed for yet and completely disabled the light. I was sort of satisfied. Later I discovered that, along with the indicator light, they had disabled the cruise-control. I would really like to find out how to fix both of these issues. I really don't want to take it back to those guys and I am sure they don't want to see me, so I hope this is something that I can repair myself. I am pretty good with this sort of thing, but I know nothing about cruise-control or the other.
#65 of 78 2002 Isuzu Rodeo - Parking lights stay on when alarm is set
Aug 04, 2010 (3:11 pm)
I have a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo and recently the parking lights started staying on when the alarm was set. This happened last week. Now the parking lots are just staying on whether I set the alarm or not...however it still seems to be associated with the alarm. I believe there is some relay that flashes the lights when you lock the doors or set the alarm but I am not 100% sure that is true or where to even look to try and find that relay. Can anyone offer some help?
