Question about Buick Rendezvous
Car won't start! Goes crazy when i turn key. Lights flashing, can't lock/unlock doors, service light on, says "traction control off", "abs off". Hoping it's an easy fix... :/ THANK YOU.
I would start by making sure all of your connections at the battery are clean and tight. A loose or corroded connection can wreak havoc with your starting system. After you have verified that all connections are good, make sure your battery is in good condition. If everything else checks out good you might be looking at having your ignition switch changed.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick response! Heres a follow-up: My car wouldnt turn on, so I jumpstarted the battery and it worked. Several minutes later, I dsconnected the wires, turned it off, and tried to turn it back on but no luck. Tried jump starting it again but it wouldn't work the second time. The horn went off for a second, the lights flashed, and the air went on for a second. It was acting crazy. I thought it was the alarm so I used my fob to lock/unlock the doors (this feature luckily now worked after the little recharge). When I tried jump starting, it still acted crazy. I locked it and left it for a few hours, but still no luck turning it on. Any thoughts on why it jumpstarted once and won't jumpstart again? I know I messed up and should have driven it to give it more time to recharge... :("

Car won't start? Try this:
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck bendix gear.

no it does not; this is a massive short in the electrical system and, requires the services of an auto electrician like myself.
take the car in to an ASE certified auto electrical shop and, stop spending money on temporary fixes
the technicians can read the schematics and, fix your car right

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

There are wheel speed senors that tell the computer about wheel slippage. One or both are malfunctioning or the wiring is chaffed.

There is a abs wheel sensor that is on the hubs on these vehicals that should be changed if the light that you are getting comes and goes this happens when the signal from the sensor to the abs system has been interupted you can take it to autozone and have them clear the code for you till you can get this repaired these sensors can cost around 150 to replace ok
