Blower fan not working at all 2004 Buick rendezvous

Which system ?
HVAC Systems - Manual HVAC Systems - Automatic
If automatic it's probably the blower motor control processor .
Blower Motor Control Processor The blower motor control processor is an interface between the HVAC control module and the blower motor. The blower motor speed control, Blower motor speed signal, battery positive voltage and ground circuits enable the control processor to operate. The HVAC control module sends the commanded blower motor speed to the control processor through a 0 to 12-volt linear ramped blower motor speed control circuit. As the blower motor speed control voltage increases, the blower motor speed increases. The control processor sends the actual blower speed to the control module through a 0 to 12-volt blower motor speed signal circuit. The processor supplies 12volts to the blower motor through the blower motor voltage supply circuit. The control processor uses the blower motor ground as a low side control to adjust the blower motor speed.

My 2004 buick rainer is stuck in park but dash board says its in drive how can i fix this

Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control System
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid

The automatic transmission shift lock control switch
Can you or can you not take it out of park ?
Shift Lever Does Not Move with Brake Pedal Depressed
yes or no ?
PRND321 Display
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the selected gear position as determined by the engine control module (ECM). The IPC receives a serial data message from the ECM indicating the gear position. The PRND321 display blanks if:
The ECM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.

The IPC detects a loss of serial data communications with the ECM.

You have a transmission range sensor or PCM problem , Need a professional grade scan tool to diagnose the problem , well that would be the easiest way to test .You should have all modules test for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ! That would point you in the right direction ! I would suggest you google class 2 serial data communication network !

I have a 1999 buick Lasebra the heat or fan is not working what could it be

Well it could be any one of a few things ! There are two blower motor relays , two fuse's an the blower motor resistor, but wouldn't think that is the problem unless you have high speed blower operation ! But then again don't know if we are even talking about the same fan ? heater fan not cooling fan ?

99 buick lesabra blowing no heater

Assuming that you have the proper amount of coolent added, check where your heater hoses connect to the engine block for rust and corrossion, this is a common area to clog up, preventing coolent flow from circulating through your heater core. If ok, check for a thermostat that is stuck open.

2003 Yukon Denali has Service ride Control Warning..wat to do?

Hi Jose:
The first place to start is to have Ride Control Module scanned for trouble codes, this requires a high end scan tool. Most common problem is the air compressor in the rear or a height sensor. Here is how the system works.

Automatic Level Control Description and Operation
The RTD system is bi-state real time damping system. The Suspension Control module controls the suspension damper solenoids and suspension position sensors, along with parts of the automatic level control (ALC) system and electronic variable orifice (EVO) power steering system.

The Automatic Level Control system consists of the following:
• Suspension Control Module
• Compressor/Leveling Module
- Air Pressure Sensor
- Exhaust Solenoid
• Compressor Motor Relay

The objective of the Automatic Level Control System is to provide constant ride height at all load conditions. The Suspension Control module monitors body-to-wheel height, and vehicle speed.

The Suspension Control module will use the rear body-to-wheel displacements and vehicle speed inputs to keep the rear trim height of the vehicle at its desired level.

The electronic suspension control (ESC) system is bi-state real time damping system. The ESC module controls the suspension damper solenoids and suspension position sensors, along with parts of the automatic level control (ALC) system, if 1500 series.

The ESC system consists of the following:
• The ESC module
• The compressor/leveling module, if 1500 series
- The air pressure sensor, if 1500 series
- The exhaust solenoid, if 1500 series
• The compressor motor relay, if 1500 series
• The steering handwheel speed/position sensor
• The suspension damper solenoids
• The suspension position sensors

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

The rear portion of our 2004 Buick Rainier will sink when we cut the engine off. When we crank it up it rises. Its like there is some sort of hydraulic shock or something. We have about 55K miles on it....

You have an automatic ride leveler system that appears to have appreciable leakage in the rear lift cylinders or connecting lines. The pump for this system will wear out trying to replace the leakage--get it checked out. Hope this helps!

2004 buick Rainier windshield washer pump stays on

yes this is an electrical problem. it is either the relay is stuck or the switch is stuck on the inside , since the motor is working.
it will need to be checked out to see which one is causing it to continue to run.
hope this information is worth a fixya and if you need any other asistance , just ask!

Electronic level control

I had this happen with my 2004 Buick Lesabre at 38,000 miles. The dealer fixed it for $68: it was a linkage bar in the rear that enabled the system to detect how high the rear was, that had become detached.
I have also read from another owner, that his sensor module for this system had become broken at around 80,000 miles, and that that wasn't too expensive either.
