First, if it is something like a loose gas cap, just tighten it and it will reset itself in the next 100 miles or so. If it is something else, like a leaky gas cap it will never reset. But to reset the OnBoardDiagnostic (OBD)Computer... Go to eBay and search "obdII" and buy one, they run about $50.00 including shipping. There are two types, ISO forand some Japanese, and the other one for all the others like and GM. There are several that are both, that is the kind you want. Be sure to the eBay seller and ask if it is used with your year and model. (1996 was a changeover year for OBDII technology, so this advice may not apply to everybody--but the dealer service guy can tell you over the phone--ask him if it is OBDII compliant.) When you get it, you just plug it in and let it cycle 4 or 5 times and it resets everything. You then have to drive your car for 50 to 100 miles for the onboard computer to test everything, and in the meantime your car will fail smog checks because it has no history in the computer and the smog test procedure demands a history even if there is no pollution. Cut and Paste http://search.ebay.com/OBDII for a list of them for sale on eBay. Most units come with a list of generic fault codes so you can tell what the problem is, this could be very helpful.

A code 37 on an Isuzu Rodeo means to check the transmission. This could mean that a short is occurring between the Transmission Control Module and the Electronic Computer Unit. Check all wires going from the transmission to the computer. If no short is found, a tube might be placed over the wires to prevent them from accidentally coding for no reason other than magnetic interference.
Check the ignition coil for power. Check the crank position sensor, and make sure that the engine is turning over ( timing belt not broken.) Check to make sure that fuel is getting to the engine as well.
Lots of problems could cause the light to come on. First off, check your fluid levels; second, take it to a mechanic.
The engine is running hot for some reason. Check thermostat, radiator and coolant level.

yes the system is sealed, which means there isn't a dip srick on the side of the motor so you can check the level of the transmission fuild like you would check your engine oil , also owner of 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Sport V6 Automatic.

On the 2002 Rodeo the transmission is sealed and is non servicable by the owner. You cannot even check the fluid level so I advise taking it to an Isuzu repair shop.
it is low coolant temperature, could be the thermostat could be the sensor for coolant temperature.
Where to find partsIsuzu dealerships carry all parts for these vehicles, if not available check Honda dealers ( passports are the same) and most auto parts retailers either have parts in stock or can get them.
First, reset the computer by disconnecting the negative battery cable for a couple of minutes then reconnect. If the CHECK ENGINE light still comes on, check the gas cap and make sure it is tight. Due to emission rules (OBDII), the computer checks to make sure the gas cap seals the gas tank. You might have to replace the gas cap.
Check the Rodeo choke to make sure that is closes when its cold. A bad choke will give you starting problems in the cold.
