2001 Isuzu Rodeo Question 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 82000 miles
The alarm/security system appears out of sync. Note: the engine was replaced (new engine block) about 12K miles ago.
Symptoms - 1. When the truck is shut off and the key is removed and the drivers door is opened, the warning buzzer goes off as if the key is still in the ignition. 2. Then, when the drivers door is closed, the chirp occurs and after about 10 seconds the doors lock - all this without doing a thing. 3. About 5% of the time the ignition will not unlock when the key is inserted. After many 'locks/unlocks' the key will turn. 4. Twice in last 25 times, the truck shuts itself off while driving downe the road and when trying to restart, the alarm goes off.
