WON'T START.

2000 Isuzu Trooper • 11,900 miles

Daughter ran errands in the a.M. All was fine went home and then later the trooper would not start. There is a check engine light and a reduced power light. The car had a check engine light before this but was related to EGR valve. EGR was replaced and engine light went out but came back on. Now a reduced power light is on and the car will not start. Check battery it's ok. Hear a clicking by the starter but also read that it could be wiring harness. Can't pull codes because don't have equip and can't get it anywhere without being towed. Any suggestions on what to check.

So you have a crank no start?Or a no crank no start?A reduced performance light can disable a restart depending on the issue. Your best bet is to get a code reader and see what codes you have. You have two choices get it towed to a shop and have them fix it. Or buy tools and try to fix it yourself. Getting the exact code numbers is your first step. You can do the basics check for spark actual fuel pressure and check injector pluse but if the computer is shutting it down or bad sensor your not going to know. Thats why I would see what codes it has first its best to have a scan tool that reads live engine data for diagnose. On amazon they have them for 50 something dollars.
