To reset the engine light you need an OBDII Reader. $39 From Harbor Freight. They have retail stores in many areas or use the following: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=94168 It plugs into the OBDII socket. On my 01 Rodeo, it is under the dash next to the driver side door. Select 'Erase' on the Reader menu and you are done. Alternatively, you can disconnect the battery. This should wipe the OBD memory. Unfortunately, it will also reset the clock, the radio presets, and anything else in RAM in the car. Still, cheaper than going out and buying an OBD reader. ******************************* A cheaper alternative would be to go to an auto parts store, Checker Auto or Autozone in my area, and they have a check engine reader that they will let you use for free. They may require a deposit such as your drivers license or a credit card as security while you check the error code or erase that code.

How do I reset the CPU in a 1999 Izuzu trooper. After the battery went completely dead at will not start due to the cpu. (Battery now charged
I have a 1994 Isuzu Trooper and it has issues upshifting at lower speeds. How do I check the fluid level in the transmission when there is no dipstick?
If the check engine light is on...might be a dirty EGR valve.
check your tranny fluid first
How to check trans fluid on a 1997 Isuzu Trooper

Someone can find an Isuzu Trooper for sale by checking their local Yellow Pages and locating an Isuzu dealership near them. Also, you can check your local newspaper's classified section for any listing of new or used Isuzu Troopers for sale.
check the engine temperature sensor. the trans won't go into overdrive until the engine is warm.
If your Isuzu Trooper anti-theft light is not going out and your vehicle won't start, put the key in the driver's side door and lock it. Unlock it and check to see if the alarm is disabled.
check the ground to the engine block
If like my 2000, it is on the left valve cover. it is too cold to go out and double check.
check your motor oil level it might just need some, if not then you have a bad oil sensor that is working only on high but not in low, ... could also be a loose or missing gas cap.
There is a problem with the emissions system. Make sure you gas cap is tight. If that is not the problem, I suggest you seek out professional help. It takes a progfessional to diagnois the problem.
Could be as simple as a dirty, plugged up fuel filter or as bad as a damaged catalytic converter. If there is a check engine light illuminated, start with having the codes scanned.
Try removing one of the battery cables for about thirty seconds. That usually does the trick on any vehicle. If the issue still persists though, the check engine light will come on again. Try disconecting the negative battery cable.
A flashing check engine light means that you have a problem with your engine that may cause harm to the catalytic converter.
It could be a number of things. If it's drivable I would take it to AutoZone and they can do a check and tell you what the problem is. It's also free so it wouldn't hurt.
disconnect the battery
Loose wheel, bent wheel, Belt broke in tire,BAD wheel bearing. Check and repair as needed.
