OK, Here's the update on the electrical issue. First let me mention that the starter was also involved. At the time I wrote the first post I had just replaced the starter and hadn't fully comprehended the fact that it was all related until the car wouldn't start again two days later. It was not the starter. It turns out that my guess in the last post was exactly correct. The Ground (P10) was loose and is known to cause all manner of electrical chaos including computer glitches (fuel cutoff while driving), instrumentation glitches and starter failure. There was a recall on very early VIN's (I bought my truck within weeks of the '98 hitting the showroom floor and my VIN was too late to be included in the recall) and the factory "fixed" the problem, which apparently means that it takes much longer to show up now than it did before. This problem is also detailed in a TSB (sorry, don't know which one) which was released last august (2000) and covers all Amigos 1998-2000 (and I would guess this problem will continue into more model years) and may also affect ground P6. If you experience these problems (the first indication is that of a failed starter, which I have been told virtually NEVER actually happens to an Isuzu) Ask your mechanic to check these two grounds FIRST before doing anything else. You'd be surprised at the difference in the repair bill between tightening a bolt and spending 10-12 hours tracking a problem because the service staff doesn't ever actully read the TSB's Isuzu sends them.
