Isuzu 1999 Rodeo troubles....

Hi Folks,

My 17 year old son just purchased a 99 Rodeo and we are having a few problems, could sure use some help please. *smiles*

First problem: The dome light is staying on. When he switches it to the off position it will no longer come on when you open the doors. This is not a good thing at night when entering your car. Any ideas how we can get the dome light to work like it should? What do you think is causing this?

Second problem: The key remote is not working and when you do click on the lock button to unlock or lock you get a honking sound, not a panic button sound, just a strange sound. lol

Any help with this would certainly be appreciated. :)

The key remote probably needs new batteries and/or cleaned contacts.
A door switch is worn or sticking.
Both of there are normal service items, particularly the battery..The owner should have two remotes, without a back-up there can be much grief...

Hi Earthworm, thank you... *smiles*

Actually we do have both remotes and they are both doing the same thing so I kind of ruled out a battery. Ya wouldn't think they would both need it. They were working just fine and then this problem started overnight.

How can we check the door switch?

Thank you again for replying. ;)

I guess that you should be needing to really check things out here. In that way, you would be able to find what is the trouble of that vehicle. If not, try to read some bulletins and news about this one.
