Replace tail light on a 2001 Isuzu RodeoThere are 3 screws you need to loosen on a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo. There are two located along the side of the tail light inside the little black things that look like air vents. The other one is located between the bumper the tail light you may need a longer Phillips head screwdriver, preferably magnetic, for that screw. Once you remove all of the screws, slide the tail light straight back. It should pop back out of place. Try not to shake it out of place as to not harm the setting rods. If one or both of the plastic rods do break I don't believe will harm the vehicle or affect the operation of the tail light. Remove the corresponding bulb by turning the bracket counter clockwise and pulling the bulb out. The correct bulb number for a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo is the ever popular 1157.

There are 4 screws to remove 2 in the side that are difficult to see 2 in the bottom that are very difficult to see behind the plate

There were only 3 screws to remove on my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo. The 2 on the side of the tail light and 1 on the bottom just above the rear bumper. After removing all 3 screws you have to pull the entire tail light straight out towards you. This may take some force because there's a plastic pin located at the top of the tail light to help hold it in place. Once you have the entire light out, turn the bracket counter clockwise as stated above. Gently push in the old bulb and turn it to unlock it from the socket then just put the new bulb in. Make sure that all lighting wires are tucked into the back of the light and then line up the plastic pins when you are snapping it back onto the vehicle. Put the 3 screws back in and you are good to go. :)

The check engine light for the 2001 Isuzu Rodeo often comes on because of a sensor that is damaged or malfunctioning. The most common sensor is an oxygen sensor and when reset, this often allows the light to be reset.
