Engine quits unannounced and vehicle security light comes on. if at road speed, car restarts itself; if at low speed, I have to put the tranny in neutral and restart it. Seems tied to te ignition syatem but the dealer can't find the problem.

Iam thinking aloud here but maybe the problem lies with the key or the transponder reader behind the cowling on the ignition lock ,maybe a loose wire in a multiplug connection

Do yourself a favor & get it scanned at transmission shop, or dealer & fixed as needed,(within reason) . Delaying it could cost lots of money. A rebuilt is about $1500-$2000.

SOURCE: When driving the olds Intrigue and the engine will

It's when the security light starts flashing that the infamous "chip" in the key becomes a nightmare to many.
Gradually the car begins not cranking anymore or if it cranks it would start and die in a second. Randomly it will
do this more and more often until it won't start anymore. VATS, PASSkey and Passlock immobilizer systems are
killing cars all over North America, they have a short lifespan and are certainly more effective against owners
than thieves. Here is how you save your car
1st trick, (if not starting) turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like
that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. I did this
in my regal for more than a year. If its shutting down while running, im sorry i have no quick fix... If anything
on this page helps you, please remember to comment or give me a thumbs up on the myfixya sight so i can have a
better rating to help more people on this. Thanks

Cheap fix: Bypass the chip in your key. Temporary, but effective. Until the TDM (theft deterrent module) in the
dash poops out, then you're kinda screwed. I was told that these types of key security systems have a 7-10 year
life span. Sucks for us. This link explains the "Key Issue" pretty well.
----- http://vats.likeabigdog.com/


Never worry again fix: Bypass the whole VATS/Passlock/passkey I or passkey II system entirely. Literally take it
out, and throw it away. I just did this in my Regal. Took about an hour. Took longer to find the thing than it did
to fix the problem. They sell a unit for 200 bucks to totally bypass this system FOREVER. life time-money back and
all that. Finally did this in my car. Well worth the 200 if you've looked into getting this replaced... Anywhere
from 600-1000 bucks. If you do buy this, please purchase it thru this link. The cost is the same, but i get credit
for the sale and im trying to earn my money back, as you will be able to do if you buy fron NewRockies and join the
free affiliate program. Thanks
----- http://newrockies.ca?ap_id=judd0081 need it
----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey system out of your car all together. Good info
on both sites.

It works for:
Any GM or Isuzu Vehicle with VATS or PASSKey or PASSLock security systems.
If your car has the chip in the key or in the lock cylinder, then you can save it with this Full Bypass.

20069 buick rainier shutoff off while driving


That could be a tough one to diagnose even with the proper diagnostic tools . Your best would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop to have it checked ! You don't want listen to people on here saying it's this or that and just replacing parts that don't fix it . With all the electronics on your vehicle this problem could be a lot of thing's . And with out testing and knowing for sure I wouldn't even say it's one thing or another .

2005 buick rainier abs light stays on. Just put new brakes and rotors. How do i het this off.


If the ABS light is on it means the ABS system has detected a fault.
If the light comes on when you start the car and stays on than it has detected a problem during its self check. This is typically a wiring or connector issue.

If the light come on when you start the vehicle and then goes out but comes back on when you start moving than there is likely a problem with a speed sensor.

The best route is to start with a scan tool to see what codes are present and/or to see what wheel speed sensor is not working.

It also wont hurt to check you r work to see if you disconnected a speed sensor or broke a wire while servicing the brakes.

04 buick rainier, charge light goes off during high rpms


have the alternator bench tested for problem in regulator or rectifier. check and adjust the drive belt. Charge light should go off at at idle and remain off during whole of engine operation
if they come on at idle it means that the alternator is not producing a charge current and needs attention.

I have a 2006 Buick Rainier. When driving at lower speed and accelerating or turning the rear end seems to lock up and there is a grinding noise and jerking sensation. What can this be? We put it on


I finally received the answer to this problem with my '06 Rainier CXL. The front gear pack (in mine) needs to be replaced. Vehicle is driving AWD, all the time. Expensive repair- $1600. Mine has 93+K miles, the engine is in awesome condition. To repair or not to repair... that is my struggle.

What is wrong w/04 buick raininer awd dont work, service light does not come on ?


There are 2 types of AWD full time and part time.In AWD there is difference in speed from front to rear These system are not selectable and do not have low range. There is also on demand AWD.This is a 30% to front and 70% to rear. To truly diagnosis your concern is with a comparision vehicle.

Awd light stays on low fuel lght even w/full tank of gas..


we have dumped over $5000 into mine in the past 1.5 yrs and the "service engine soon" light has never gone off for more than 3 days. fuel gauge reads either full or empty w/no rhyme or reason. this causes the "low fuel" light to randomly come on. i hear strange noises that SOUND like some sort of brake issue, but 2 mechanics have checked them and said they were fine. this causes the "awd disable" and "anti-lock" lights to randomly come on. one day i was driving down the road and glanced at the dash to be mesmerized by what looked like disco lights because the dash was flashing: *SECURITY * *LOW FUEL* *AWD DISABLE* *SECURITY*
My entire family has been driving GM vehicles exclusively (mostly Buicks and Chevys) for over 60yrs. I was raised by war veterans and union members and I believe very strongly in buying American. I am a union member myself, and am disgusted daily by all the foreign cars on the roads. But I am so disturbed by the number of problems I've had with this ONE vehicle in less than 2 years (and the fact that so many of us have had so many problems that remain to be solved or even acknowledged), I am seriously considering never buying GM again. I will have to swallow my gm pride and buy a jeep or a dodge and pray that they haven't ALL failed us.
