WILL NOT RUN WITH BELTS ON BUT WILL RUN WITHOUT.

1995 Isuzu Rodeo • 125,000 miles

My 1995 isuzu rodeo will run without the belts on but when I put them on it will not? All of the pully's are free I replaced the timing belt and timing is right on

It has the 24 valve v-6 dual over head cam engine.

Have you checked for trouble codes?
The crankshaft position sensor is at lower right side of engine and if installing the belt causes it to fail to start, there is a possibility the sensor or its wiring is being affected by the belt. Inspect closely and ensure the sensor or wire is not too close to the belt. Try wiggling the wires if necessary and check for abrasion damages.

Check for sparks while cranking. If no sparks are available, it means the crankshaft position sensor is not working correctly.
