Hate to be the bearer of bad news friend but 99.9% of the time, reverse is the first gear to go out in a transmission.

SOURCE: 2003 buick rendezvous power outlets

 Fuse #14 is for REAR auxillary power  outlet (in cargo area).  This is located in the INSIDE fuse box to the left of and under the glovebox (to the left of the front passenger's feet).
Fuse #32 is for FRONT Power Outlets/cigarette lighter//Lights, OnStar®  Fuse 32 is under the hood in the ENGINE AREA fuse box located in the compartment  just above the battery.DOUBLE CHECK YOUR MANUAL to make sure that your fuses are the same.  I have a 2003 Rendezvous. Your newer model may be different.  The diagrams for each fuse box can be found inside the lids of the compartments.

SOURCE: how do I change the rotors on a 2003 buick rendezvous?

You will find two bolts on the back side of the caliper that go into two small rubber boots. Likely the bolt heads on yours are torks head and need appropriate socket to remove. You need to retract pads in order to easily remove caliper from rotor. Retract further with a large "c" clamp before re-installing pads. Lube slides that attachment bolts go through (I use white grease for this) before re-installing them. Be careful to not cross thread bolts when putting them back in.
Good luck, and don't forget to rate this answer!!!

SOURCE: 1996 saturn sl1 transmission slips in 3 and 4 gears.

The fluid and speed sensor did not really do anything to solve your slipping problem. If it slipped before it could be that there are chips/breaks in the teeth on the gears or it could be that the clutch is not connecting when it gets into higher gears. May need a new tranny or clutch.

SOURCE: 2003 buick rendezvous has serious transmission

Here is a bulletin I located about what seems to be the issue you are describing. As far as DIY goes it really depends on how comfortable you are to disassemble parts of your transmission.

Some dealership technicians may have difficulty diagnosing DTC P0756, 2-3 Shift Valve Performance on 4L60-E, 4L65-E or 4L70-E automatic transmissions. As detailed in the Service Manual, when the PCM detects a 4-3-3-4 shift pattern, DTC P0756 will set. Some customers may also describe a condition of a second, third or fourth gear start that may have the same causes but has not set this DTC yet. Below are some tips when diagnosing this DTC:
• This is a performance code. This means that a mechanical malfunction exists. • This code is not set by electrical issues such as a damaged wiring harness or poor electrical connections. Electrical problems would cause a DTC P0758, P0787 or P0788 to set. • The most likely cause is chips/debris plugging the filtered AFL oil at orifice #29 on the top of the spacer plate (48). This is a very small hole and is easily plugged by a small amount of debris. It is important to remove the spacer plate and inspect orifice #29 and the immediate area for the presence of chips/debris. Also, the transmission case passage directly above this orifice and the valve body passage directly below should be inspected and cleaned of any chips/debris. For 2003 and newer vehicles the spacer plate should be replaced. The service replacement spacer plate is a bonded style with gaskets and solenoid filter screens bonded to the spacer plate. These screens can help to prevent plugging of orifice #29 caused by small debris or chips. • This code could be set if the 2-3 shift valve (368) were stuck or hung-up in its bore. Inspect the 2-3 shift valve (368) and the 2-3 shuttle valve (369) for free movement or damage and clean the valves, the bore and the valve body passages. • This code could be set by a 2-3 shift solenoid (367b) if it were cracked, broken or leaking. Refer to Shift Solenoid Leak Test in the appropriate Service Manual for the leak test procedure. Based on parts return findings, a damaged or leaking shift solenoid is the least likely cause of this condition. Simply replacing a shift solenoid will not correct this condition unless the solenoid has been found to be cracked, broken or leaking.

2003 Buick Rendezvous FWD 3.4l engine tranny wont shift out of 1st gear.

Check engine light on? If so, you need to scan the transmission control module for any codes that may be causing this problem. You may have a defective solenoid etc. inside the tranny. You can also try disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it to see if it may correct the problem

Could a bad Neutral Safety Switch cause my transmission to not stay i gear

I doubt it.
The only thing the neutral safety switch does is prevent you from cranking the engine in gear, and switches on the backup lights when you are in reverse.

Have 2003 Buick Rendezvous cx, has 175,000 kilometers, the transmission seems to have a slip when you go from reverse to drive, but only once in awhile, what could this be.

Have you ever had the transmission fluid changed? If not, it COULD be the problem. Don't take it to one of those Fluid Flush places. They don't change the filter and just pump out some of the old fluid. Go to a place that drops the pan and changes the filter.
I also use SEAFOAM transmission conditioner shortly BEFORE I change the fluid. O'Reilly's sells it.
Good Luck.

Going from Park or reverse to Drive occasionally

The trans probablely wasn't the problem.
Sounds more like solenoids or shift linkage issues
