Dead one minute, then fine the next '98 Rodeo

Gene Ewing

Asked by Jul 21, 2016 at 12:38 PM about the 1998 Isuzu Rodeo 4 Dr S SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Starts and drives just fine one minute then upon returning to vehicle it acts as though the battery has been disconnected. No lights no nothing. Let it just sit for a bit and back to normal again. Cables seem clean and fine. Fuses and relays switched around and no change. ECM ???? Starter Relay???? Help.

I was mistaken, it is the 6 cylinder not 4.


You should run a voltage drop test on the cables, I believe that you will find that they are bad internally.

OK I'll do that next. Thanks.
