2007 Isuzu i290 Pickup Problems

PCM Reflash For False Trouble Codes

This vehicle is known to set false trouble codes, which causes the Check Engine Light to illuminate. To resolve the problem, the powertrain control module PCM needs to be re-flashed. This repair will be covered for a time under the vehicle's emission warranty.

Coolant leak from crossover pipe
Engine coolant leaks from the crossover pipe are common and can be mistaken for an intake manifold leak. Our technicians suggest replacing engine coolant (Dexcool) more often than the manufacturer recommends.
Transfer case noise due to excessive play
4WD Models
Noise from the transfer case could indicate excessive play in the transfer case. Dealers will replace or repair the unit under warranty if the vehicle is under 36,000 miles.

2007 Isuzu i290 Pickup Recalls

GM Recalls 2004–2011 Vehicles Due to Inaccessible Top Tether Anchor for Child Safety Seat

General Motors is recalling certain 2004–2011 Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Isuzu regular and extended cab models without a rear seat and equipped with a 60/40 front bench split seat for failing to comply with federal safety standards on child restraint anchorage systems. The top tether anchor for the front center seat is not accessible and the manual provides no instruction on its use. In order to correct the problem, dealers will cut a hole in the back panel trim cover to allow access to the top tether anchor and will provide supplemental instructions on the use of the top tether.

GM Recalls 2004–2009 Vehicles Due to Defective Brake Lamp Switch

General Motors is recalling various 2004–2009 models in twelve Southern and Southwestern states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands due to contamination in the brake lamp switch, which may cause the brake lamps to fail or stay on continuously. This could lead to a crash since other drivers may not be aware of the operator's intentions. Dealers will inspect and replace the necessary components free of charge. For more information, call Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-866-996-9463, or Isuzu at 1-800-255-6727.

2007 Isuzu i290 Pickup Reviews

nothing fancy but solid good truck, great mileage for the era. Not as good as a ranger but WAY better than that piece of crap tacoma I used to own. Toyota targets people who know absolutely nothing about cars and then throws around the word reliable....NOT
Having owned 100's of cars and trucks in my lifetime... this Isuzu I-290, a Chevy Colorado knock-off, is the BIGGEST PIECE OF CRAP I've ever owned!
My Isuzu I290's ABS brake light will come on occasionally and make a grinding noise but then it will go away what can be the problem. Other than this it's been a wondeful truck.
