Hi Al, I'm glad to help!

Al, sense I'm not there to actually do diagnostics on your problem, I'll just tell you what I have found most of the time with your dyeing issue. Being in the automotive field for over 40 years I have mostly found a cold start dyeing issue to be the "IDLE AIR CONTROL MOTOR" because what it does is idles the engine up during cold starts and also when there is a load applied to the engine like when the A/C compressor turns on. This is where I would start. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Al.

SOURCE: 2004 Buick Rendezvous AWD Light Stays On

Our 2002 did the same thing. Easy cheap fix! Pull the wheel off and check the wiring that goes to the wheel sensor. You will find after removing a few inches of wrap, a broken wire or two. This could be on either wheel, so check both. Fix the wires back up and you are good to go. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Gas gauge problems with 2004 Buick Rendezvous

No, there is not a fuse for this. Unfortunately, you have a bad sending unit. In order to replace the sending unit you have to drop the gas tank. Sooo............drive it more to get rid of all of that gas and it will be easier to put back up.
please remember to rate this solution.

SOURCE: 2004 Buick Rendezvous, speedometer fluctuations

Turns out this is a common problem for the Rendezvous.
I took it to a mechanic and after he tested to see if all the speed sensors were working with his handheld computer reader, (because there is no speedometer cable anymore) He reset the needle by turning the key about 25 times as far as possible without starting the vehicle. The speedometer needle came back a bit each key turn till it reached zero. It's been working fine since.

REMOVAL:

The removal and installation of the thermostat... tunde007_2.jpg

INSTALLATION:
  • Install the thermostat.
  • Install the thermostat housing and gasket.


NOTE: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  • Install the thermostat housing bolts and tighten them to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  • Install the radiator hose to the thermostat housing.
  • Install the crossover exhaust pipe.
  • Install the air cleaner and duct assembly.
  • Fill the cooling system.


Hope it helps

How do I take the door panel off of a 2006 Buick Rendezvous (drivers front door) panel? My door locks and latch keep freezing in the winter time and I want to remove the panel to lube it with grease.


Putting grease on pivot points will make things worse in the winter since grease gets stiff when it gets cold. Shoot some dry graphite in the lock cylinder from the outside.

2004 buick rendezvous loses power after jump starting, while engine idlies battery power dies. Unable to restart again unless I jump start. Also, battery light comes on. Battery was replaced 5/28/13.


Sounds like the alternator. A jump can start you but if the alternator is bad your battery will not charge and just die after you use the power you got from the jump.

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
