Question about 2008 Buick Enclave

Open Question

I have an '08 Buick Enclave with a P0496 code.

Car runs fine. I cleared the code and it came back. How do I troubleshoot where the problem is in the purge system?

SOURCE: Buick Enclave Rear Seats

Yes? The thing about the Enclave/Acadia/Outlook triplets is that they are all great, but that second row is very uncomfortable. My friend was going to get the Enclave (amazing interior), but went with the Mazda CX-9 instead.

SOURCE: Key stuck in buick enclave in acc position.

if acc is the one before the starter then no as you have to turn the key in order to start sorry! but if it is lighting the dash up with battery and engine lights then u can short the rear of the ignition barrel by taking off the cowling {around ignition} then there should be wires soldered to the back of what we call the black [or white] box. once youve charged the battery you can cross the back wires using a screw driver, when you hear it turn over you can determine which is the live feed and cross with starter wire. failing this the best i can advise is removing cowling and taking black{or white} box off the back of the ignition barrel end and then you will be able to drive it until you get a new ignition barrel hope that helps

My 08 bucik enclave cxl when you try to start it just speeds . Then after 3 or 4 time it starts what could be the problem


Do you mean that on the first few attempts the starter runs but doesn't engage the engine to turn it over? If so, you have a bad bendix in the starter or there is something preventing the bendix from moving fully into the flywheel engage position.

P2179 is on in my 2008 Buick enclave and 3.6 and stabilitrack light is on also.


This code refers to a lean condition on cylinder bank 2. The stabilitrac will disable on most vehicles if the check engine light comes on. You may have a vacuum leak from one of the hoses causing this code. Clearing the codes should put stabilitrac back in service.

What is a p0496 error on a 2006 buick lacrosse cxs


The P0496 DTC code is a generic code which applies to all vehicle makes. A quick search on the 'net shows that this code seems to be more common with GM (Chevy, Pontiac, etc.) vehicles. In Acura, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, and Mazda vehicles, this code is described "EVAP system high purge flow" which is the same thing.
try use maxiscan us703 to clear the fault code.
