Hello, This defect means your torque converter is switched on and not disengaging.
This can be a toggle type switch or the torque converter Lock-up is stuck.

I service mostly Ford family Brands and not GM, everyone has their own way to do stuff. I can tell you that the Torque converter is deeply embedded between the engine and trans and it would make sense to have the controls for it accessible from outside. Your PCM (Powertrain Control Module) may be at fault, save for any toggle relays inbetween the PCM and the Torque Converter. Sometimes shift points and other information can be "Flashed" or reprogrammed with a Dealer computer. This is a different device than just a scanner that reads your Trouble Codes.

At least you can ask about repairing this problem and pricing info and pick your best spot. I looked under the NHTSA Website for you and there was no mention of repeated problems like yours for your specific vehicle.

You can ask at a good Autoparts store if there is a "Torque Converter Lock-Up" switch for your trans and proceed from there. A GM Expert at this site may be able to help you more than I can, but you can try my info and see what happens.

I have a 2004 Buick Rendezvous 3.6 I have to shift it manually but cruise control still works


Shifting manual over rides the shift solenoids. Have the codes read. I would recommend that both shift solenoids, the epc solenoid and the boost valve be replaced. $800+ at a garage. That's only if the transmission doesn't slip in any gear.

2003 Buick rendezvous hatch won,t open


Spray the lock cylinder with WD40, work the key in and out several times, then before you try to turn it put the key in the cylinder and rap the head of the key with the handle of a screwdriver a few times, then try to turn your key.

2004 buick rendezvous sometimes won't start. clicks but won't turn over. replaced starter, battery, and ignition switch. what now??


We just went through this with our 2003 Rendevous. Clicking like crazy but wouldn't start. Replaced the starter but still doing the same thing. Our next step was going to be replace the battery (which tested well) and the ignition assembly. Out of frustration, I hit the top of the hood and the headlights came on!! Further investigaton proved that the problem was a corroded ground wire on the battery. Hope this helps

It started with the loss of my cruise control. I had no problems with shifting out of park. Came home put the car in to reverse and shut it down. 30 minutes later, started the car, I can move the lever...


Sounds like the cable from the shift lever to the transmission has broken or come loose. You may have to get it towed in to a dealer to have it fixed.
