Turn the ignition to ON without starting the engine. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three time in five seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON’ indicator flashes two times, the system is resetting. Turn the key to OFF, then start the vehicle. If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator comes on and stays on for five seconds, repeat the procedure.

To the left of the steering wheel there should be two buttons. One says mode the other says set. Press the mode button until the display in the dash says % of oil life remaining. Hold the set button until the display flashes back to 100% then push the mode button until you get to what you wnt displayed on your dash.

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: my brake lights stay on after turing off my 2004

The brake light switch is located under the dash - if you'll look at the brake pedal and follow it up until you see a plastic cylinder with an electrical connection - that should be the brake light switch - they are often difficult to remove (they are in a bad place and hard to get to - sometimes they are threaded as well - sometimes use a clip to hold them in) They have a push-button that contacts the pedal arm - When the brakes are off, the switch is "electrically open" and has no internal connection (no brake lights) when you push the brakes Switch is now "electrically closed", the switch button releases and the switch makes a connection internally to activate the lights - yours has either lost it's mounting and no longer contacts the pedal arm, keeping brake lights on - or has an internal short - keeping them on even when the switch is activated .....This often means that your brake lights do not work correctly (or rather stay lit at all times while you are driving) thus, a definite safety hazard - remove the wiring pigtail, remove and replace the switch and plug the wiring back in - have someone check that they are now working correctly - or use a mirror - (sometimes, on some vehicles there is a rubber plug that fits into the brake lever where it contacts the switch - this plug can fall out or break apart and cause the same problem, so when you get up under the dash to look for it, ensure the parts are there, and I usually activate the pedal with my hand and visually check the mechanicals to ensure proper operation and part presence....) The switch can also be mounted directly to the arm and moves with the pedal - or mounted on the car and is depressed by the pedal - I've seen it done several different ways so use your common sense and you'll be just fine...

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.

Crawl under the car and look in between the radiator and the engine on the drivers side where the engine bolts to the transmission. It will be just to the drivers side of the oil filter.

The oil system reminder needs to be reset so the computer knows you had the oil changed. The procedure is in the owners manual but can be tough to find so you might have to do a little searching for it. Many of the GM vehicles can be reset by turning the ignition key to "run" [but don't crank or start the engine] and then fully depressing and releasing the accellerator pedal smothly three times within 5 seconds. Turn the key off, wait about 10 seconds and restart the engine to see if the reset was successful. Check your manual first as not all GM's can be reset this way and yours may be different.
