I have a 2004 Isuzu Rodeo, having problems with the "anti-theft and Immobilizer system".Only when cranking do I have a problem. It will crank for about 2 to 3 seconds & then quits. It won't start back until you take the key out of the ignition & wait for about 10 or 15 seconds. Reinsert the key , It always cranks but you don't know whether it's going to start or not. This happens 1 to 4 times. Tried both keys , the same. It does have a keyless entry. The (car-key) picture on the instrument panel does light up & flashes when it's not going to crank. Don't where to go. Dealer is about 40 miles. Can you help? thanks, Tim

Sometimes the immobilizer control unit needs to be reprogrammed, if that doesn't fix the problem, either the control unit is faulty or the antenna/ring on the switch may be defective. Reprogramming takes care of these issues 70% of the time.
O.K. I can accept this, sounds like I will still have to take it to a dealer. If any different let me know. thanks again.. Tim
You can have a locksmith come out and they can program the immobilizer system,
Not all locksmiths have this capability,but a lot do, so you may need to do some calling
