isuzu rodeo crankshaft sensor problem i think
i have a 1996 isuzu rodeo 2.6l that runs for 30 minutes and then turns off like clock work to get it to run again i have to disconnect the battery so the computer will reset itself the trouble code it throws up is the crankshaft sensor have replaced it several times they dont go bad and still does the same thing i can not figure out what the problem is dont really know where to start please help if you have any ideas of what it might be anything would be helpful at this point thank you feel free to email me at savanah1123@yahoo.com

RE: isuzu rodeo crankshaft sensor problem i think
When you get a code that doesn't always mean that the part is defective. If your gas gauge is on "E" you don't replace the gauge several times, you put gas in the tank. The message points you toward a solution. The gauge "could" be bad, but most times it isn't. The same goes for codes. You need to research what happens to set the particular code. From there, you have to track down the problem. What was the code that you got? Knowing the exact code can sometimes narrow down the search. Without knowing the code the best thing that I can suggest is looking at the wiring harness to see if it is rubbed through or has corrosion at a connector.

Hope that helps.

the code that it gives is the crankshaft positioning sensor i have one of those book for it and in the book it says if the sensor goes out the computer will reset itself and the vehicle will keep running it says that it isnt essencial to have the sensor operating for the vehicle to run so i dont understand why it is cutting off i assume that there is a posibility that there is a sencondary problem and if so i have no idea what it is or how i can find out what it is so now im just suck i really need this truck to run its the only way i have to go anywhere im just frustrated

RE: isuzu rodeo crankshaft sensor problem i think
The code that I need should be a "P" followed by some numbers like "P0335" or "P0340." There are many codes that fall under the category of "crankshaft sensor." I need to know which code it is.

Your book is probably correct that the car will run without the sensor. I will go back to the gas gauge example. A gas gauge isn't an essential item and the car will run without it. If the gauge is on "E" and you change the gauge, the car will still not run if the gas tank is empty. I am guessing, in the same way; that there is nothing wrong with your crank sensor so there is no reason for the computer to reset. You likely have something that IS essential that the code is trying to point you to. Like when the gas gauge says "E" it is trying to tell you to put gas in the tank. Get us that code and any others that may be there and we might be able to help you out. Even if there is a code that you don't think is relevant, we need it here if it was in the computer! Read the codes, record ALL of the codes, post ALL of the codes here, & have the computer memory cleared.
