    Your problem is the heater motor resistor, It has blown. Find your heater motor. Next to the motor there is what looks like a rectangular panel with a plug in it. Unplug it and take out the two screws holding it in. Pull the resistor out it should have a bunch of coils on it. Get a resistor from the auto store I think about 30 bucks and reverse removal.

SOURCE: how to check transmission fluid on 2001 isuzu rodeo

There is no dipstick on your auto trans. Checking it is a real PITA The trans pan has 2 plugs in it. The one on the very bottom is the drain. The one in the corner, up higher in a recess is the check/fill plug. To check, the engine must be warm and running, tranny in P. Remove the plug and fluid should dribble out. If it doesn't it's low, fill until it dribbles out, while engine is running. Obviously the truck must be on a lift or up on jackstands.

SOURCE: replacing the power steering pump on a 1998 isuzu rodeo

Remove low pressure and high pressure hoses (this one could be hard to break loose). You might want to have an oil pan handy, to capture the oil. Disconnect electrical sensor. Remove the bolt that holds belt tension adjustment plate. And finally remove the bolt that holds the pump in place. It is bolted from the back and located at the right lower corner of the pump if you are facing the front of the car. Remove the pump assy. I could not remove belt pulley at home, no matter how hard I tried. Ended up taking it to an automotive shop and they removed it in no time, using one of those "pneumatic impact guns". Assemble new pump. Fill the reservoir with PS oil. Make sure both of the front wheels are off the ground, start the engine and slowly spin the steering wheel back and forth for about 5 minutes or untill screeching sound stops and the liquid in the reservoir stops foaming. That will bleed any air that is in the system. Don't go all the way to the end of stroke. Good luck.

SOURCE: Cruise control & check trammission light comes on my 2001 Rodeo

I had that problem too and the issue was a loose wire connecting the engine control modude to the crankshaft sensor switch. The engine control module does not sense where the crankshaft position is when the wire moves, and that causes things to go snaky, such as the transmission and cruise lights coming on. This issue took a good mechanic in Syracuse one and a half weeks to find. Total cost was $425.00,$395.00 for labour, and $.99 for the new wire. Good luck!

SOURCE: 2002 rodeo isuzu for car

This vehicle has what is called fly by wire with an electronic throttle body. This vehicle particularly has had problems with poor grounds at the intake manifold and broken wires by the connector at the throttle body. The best solution would be to have an expert properly diagnose the problem with his special equipment.

SOURCE: my right windshield wiper on my 1998 isuzu rodeo

Yes, there is linkage that connects the two wipers. A nylon ball and socket joint connects the two, it wears out and can pop apart. By removing the black plastic grate at the edge of the hood the linkage can be accessed and popped back together. This may last for quite a while if high speed and snow slop is avoided. New parts can come from dealer or junk yard.

Rear wiper arm was broke off at car wash and now i cant find a replacement one anywhere. any ideas?

That rear wiper arm is a hard to get parts from any replacement store, the only one can supply it is the dealer themselves. ( it happens to me too ).
If you have no access to the dealer, you could make them, by buying a normal wiper arm, cut it off for the size you wanted, heat up to the point where you need to bend it, and find any wiper blade with a clip-on-installation.
Hope that helps you out!

My right windshield wiper on my 1998 isuzu rodeo is not working, however, the driver's side is working? also, do both wipers share the same motor?

Yes, there is linkage that connects the two wipers. A nylon ball and socket joint connects the two, it wears out and can pop apart. By removing the black plastic grate at the edge of the hood the linkage can be accessed and popped back together. This may last for quite a while if high speed and snow slop is avoided.
