Have a warning light on Transmission Control System Malfunction on Isuzu Dmax 2012, when accelerating sometime sticks in low gear, took it to Isuzu dealer, said it was reprogrammed, but fault has reappeared, any clues to what the malfunction may be. Johnno
I have 2011 dmax and it is making a horrible squeeke that appears to be coming from under drivers seat, I have removed seat retentioned all bolts lubed up rails & lubed any moving party & refitted. The noise still there, I’ve been all over car can’t find it anywhere!! Anybody had this problem previously & can pass on suggestions please...... Paul
You have not said whether it is a Cab Chassis / Space Cab or Dual Cab. I have had no issues with squeaking from the seats in my Space Cab however, whilst the noise appears to be coming from under the drivers seat, it may be something loose on the centre console (assuming of course you have bucket seats), from the rear passenger seat on the drivers side or even a door trim item where plastic is rubbing on plastic.
I had this problem when I first got mine (2011). It required me to put a couple of 10 cent piece sized washers between the front left securing bolt to the floor on the transmission side (next to the tunnel), and re-tighten it. It worked and have had no noise since. Regards, Drohy.
2014 Dmax without canopy. The seal has deteriorated around the rear high mount stop light (the one above the back window) and now let's in water. With the recent rains (March 2018), I have had to check for goldfish each morning lately. Any ideas where to buy a replacement seal besides the local dealership? Ajm
Having trouble trying to purchase top and bottom radiator hose for 2013 LS 4X4 Dmax I ordered some on internet and ended up with Mackay CH5214 top and 5215 bot these hoses are too short looks like they fit Holden Colorado not a 2013 Isuzu D-Max can you tell me what the part number is for both hoses.
I am thinking of getting out of my cruiser and trying a d max for towing our caravan,
average around 16 lts to 100 ks touring ,can someone tell how this would compare to ad max?
our van is around 1500 ks
Can't comment personally about a van but inlaws have a one around that weight and only use around 13L/100 I think.
Fully loaded for work I'm at 2.7T and use 9.5/100 regularily. When I tow a trailer for work occasionally (800-1000kgs) goes up to around 12/100.
We have just finished a trip around Australia in our 2012 Dmax towing a 2.5 ton van average fuel for the trip was 16.5 overall.

I have a 2017 Dmax which is being serviced every 10,000km but have notice the oil level is down half way between services. Dealer says check it after you have been parked for 10 minutes. Anyone else having this issue?
hi, check oil 5000 and than every 1000 until 10000 ,to find out when it start using oil ,if it user oil between 5000 and 10000 change the oil brand
I have a 2017 SX dual cab and want to fit a bulbar. My question is has anyone fitted a bar without upgrading front springs/shocks and if so which bar? Does the OEM Isuzu bar require an upgrade?
The genuine bar is alloy and pretty light but also not winch compatible and shouldn't require any suspension upgrade , if you are looking at a winch in the future look at the ARB Sahara bar , it's winch compatible and steel construction but might need a heavy spring upgrade .
Thanks for the info
I have a 4x2 manual dmax 2014 but it has no cabin air filter the hatch is sealed upon taking a video of inside I can see the motor to spin. Is this normal for this model?
my 2013 dmax lsu was parked as i walked heard some funny clicking noise and when i started it my traction control light stayed on turned tcs off end it showed that turned it back on and after 10 secs light showed again is it a sensor or is it more complicated just out of warranty as well can anyone help?
Join the Isuzu Dmax/MU-X owners group on Facebook , I'm sure it's been covered before , could be as simple as a bad battery .
I have a 2014 D-Max. This morning I did the main 120APM FUSE so I replaced it and now the radio won’t work any ideas what might be wrong?
First step check the radio fuse as well.
But also, why did the other fuse blow???
Do yourself a favour and join the Isuzu Dmax,MU-X owners group Australia on Facebook and take advantage of the knowledge base , I hav'nt come across your problem , often one fuse covers many applications so check them all .
