Question about 2004 Buick Rendezvous
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.

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!

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.

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.

Hi there, below are the removal/installation instructions for your thermostat.
Removing the housing bolt..
The removal and installation of the thermostat...
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.
Hope it helps
