A common thing to fial on these- assumning the grid is ok, and wires are still attched to grid, is the rear def / antenna module. It is behind rt. rear quarter trim panel. The modules burn up, and also melt the connector. the module and connector would need to be replaced.

SOURCE: 2003 Olds Silhoutte Air Shocks and Compressor - not working

The load leveling shock will not work if there is an issue with the compressor. If you buy the sir shock's, your going to have to address the compressor issue to even have the air shocks level the Silhouette. Once you have the compressor issue addressed, the shocks it's self is simple enough to replace that you can do it with common tools to save you some money. My wife has a Montana and we had the same problem, since we do not tow and really never hold that much weight. We replaced the rear shocks with Monroe Reflex Shocks, Found the van to be much more sturdy then the air shocks ever were and the good thing about them is there were lift time replacement at Parts Source. Regardless on which shocks your going to use, it's a good rule to replace both sides at the same time. The only difference in to reinstalling the air shocks is you need to reattach the air lines to the shocks and that's simple as removing the shocks it self. The shocks are only held on by two bolts,  one on top and one on bottom and should only take about 20 min each side to do since you have to jack the car up and remove the wheel for room, but you can remove the shocks it self without removing the wheel, it's your preference. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have.

SOURCE: 2001 oldsmobile intrigue secondary air injection

get yourself a wiring diagram to see what powers up the relay, it is a fuse, have you checked the fuses? also these pumps short out and that is why it is not working and blown out the circuit, replace it before you do anthing, also remember that the pump is powered up by the PCM only during cold start, so 99% of the time it has no power to it.

2002 Buick rendezvous 3.4liter has an auxiliary air pump located in the rear. Push the on button it clicks but nothing. Also the air ride Dont seem to work. Is there a fuse or something I could try.

Well if the pump doesn't work then the air ride won't either as it is what pressurizes the system. I suggest you pull the air pump and test it to see if it runs.

2002 Buick rendezvous air pump fuse good relay switched with known working one no power to air pump could a bad ignition switch cause the problem ? The key never gets removed.

If you are referring to the suspension air pump, it is automatic and will only operate if necessary to re-level the vehicle. If the vehicle is not leveling properly, check the level sensor at the rear axle for proper operation.

My air conditioner compressor in my 2002 buick rendezvous stopped working.

Take to a shop that has the proper gauges and ability to vacuum the system properly. Do not simply try and add Freon as it only causes an air gap and false readings. In addition, some cars require a resetting of values on the cars computer brain in order to function properly.

2002 Buick Rendezvous no heat and over heated after warming it up for over 30 minutes.

Have a pressure test done on your cooling system, you sound like you could have a leak in your system or your system just needs to have the air bled from it. Check your coolant level also, with air in the system and not enough coolant it will blow cold and cause overheating.

I have a 2002 buick rendezvous and the air compressor has locked up and broke the serpentine belt. Is it possible to re-route the belt to bypass the air compressor or buy a smaller belt? Any other options...

If you have the ac turned off the clutch on the front of the compressor should disengage. Then the ac pulley will spin freely and you can drive until you save up for a new compressor. You may want to save up they are about 3 to 400 bucks plus installation which is about 300.

Where is the A/C high pressure switch located for a 2002 Buick Rendezvous? I followed the low and high pressure lines from the compressor to the firewall and no switch. Thanks, DM

The AC refrigerant pressure sensor is located under the air cleaner housing. It can be serviced by putting the vehicle on a lift and removing the air baffle. Then it can be reached from underneath.
