Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo
I would check the cable connections depends how the lights were wired into the circuit there may have been either a live or a neutral connected straight into the battery which came off on disconnecting the battery terminals or one of the cables may have been disconnected on removing the battery for replacement I hope this helps

Easy fix. Usually the blower motor resistor gets messed up. (Page 3-8 Haynes manual 47017). The dash light could be a few things. All my bulbs went bad. Little bit of a hassle but no problem with the book.

The alternator is located on the passenger side of the motor at the bottom. There is a bracket attached to the motor and the alternator. You need not take the bracket off to remove the alternator. Two bolts hold the alternator to the bracket. One bolt is on the front top of the alternator and one bolt is located on the bottom front of the alternator. The bottom front bolt is attached to the tension adjustment for the alternator. Loosen the tension screw then remove the bolt going through the tension adjustment. After you loosen the top, front bolt, the alternator should be loose enough to move side to side. Remove the top, front bolt. Now you must disconnect the alternator from the power supply. Behind the alternator is a screw with a wire attached via nut. Remove this wire. Nextly there is a series of wires with a plug on the end. It is plugged into the side of the alternator. Uplug this item. You can also access both of these from the passenger side front tire well. Something to consider is that remanufactured alternators in Rodeo's as well as the Honda Passport (which has the same engine as the Rodeo) do not work and the problem(s) associated with a bad alternator,ie; not charging, no fan blower, battery light and brake light on, still exsist after replacing alternator with reman. Use a factory original alternator if possible. It will cost a little more than a reman but will most likely save you a lot of time and headache!
Hope this helps you out!!

I had the same problem as you. Thought it was starter or battery,,,it was neither. I kid you not, I figure this out for myself and problem solved. I did not have the tailgate window locked and it took at least 30 attempts to start. When I locked the tailgate opener located on the far left of dashboard, never a problem,,,, I pulled out the operator's manual/remote control/vehicle security system manual and to my surprise it confirmed. Here is the exact quote from manual "While armed, the system is triggered when a door or the tailgate window is opened. When triggered, the vehicle's horn sounds, and the exterior and interior lights flash. PERHAPS, MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE VEHICLE'S STARTER IS DISABLED AT THE SAME TIME, PREVENTING ENGINE START!!!" Please let me know if this solves your problem or you already went there..

Remove belt, fan, fan shroud and fan bracket. Remove timing covers, timing belt and water pump. Replace timing belt and the hydraulic tensioner with new ones. I suggest you get a mechanic to do this as you can easly get it out of time. Not an easy job.
