Question about 2002 Buick Rendezvous

3 Answers

In my buick rendezvous when I start to turn the key it looks like the battery is working but when I try to start it everything turns off and it stops working. Remote, key nothing works.

I bought this battery in December so it shouldn't be a problem. Its been running fine, great infact for the past months but just today it started this. Radio starts, lights all that but when I try to start it seems to die. PLEASE HELP.

Check battery cables to see if one of them have come loose if it has tighten it then have someone give you a boost or hook a battery charger to it for a little while and then see if it starts

    Use voltmeter to see the amount of voltage in battery, usually a new one has 12.6 volts, if to much less than that it needs a charge, the battery could be low of water and if it has the removable caps to put some into it, be careful around battery acid, it's dangerous, if it is low use distiled water or straight rain water. Might just need to clean terminals if corrosion is on them

If the car starts and runs while the ignition is on only, you could have a bad ignition switch. I had a plymouth do that on me once.

My buick has stopped turning on just recently. When I turn the key everything goes silent but the engine light stays on. I cant tell if its the battery or something else.


If it will start by jump starting, then the problem is either the battery or the alternator, or both. If the car has proper voltage (or the battery light is not lit) while the engine is running, and if the battery is more than three years old, I'd suspect the battery is the problem. If the voltage reads less than 12 volts or the battery light is lit while running, the alternator is not producing enough power to keep the battery charged. This may mean that the alternator only needs replaced or the alternator and battery may need replaced.

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.

I have a 2004 buick rendezvous and my steering wheel is locked up and my key wont turn. my battery was dead so got a new battery and still cant get my key to turn, its all locked up


Make sure it's in park. Hold the wheel snug against the stop, first one way, then the other, to take pressure off the wheel/key lock while trying to turn the key.

If you hear a click sound near the motor and your battery is good, you may want to have your starter checked out.

Where is the starter located on my 2002 buick rendezvous?


a single click usually means the starter. multiple rapid clicks while the key is in start position usually means battery...if battery bad, could be due to alternator, but you likely would have noticed a battery light on the dash while driving before.
