Question about 2005 Buick Rendezvous

1 Answer

The tail lights will not go out periodically. Has happened twice in the past 3 weeks. Called Onstar, they said other Rendezvous owners have reported the same problem. Only solution is to let the battery run down, then get a jump to start the car. Sounds like a product defect to me. Do you think this can be fixed?

There is no volume for the radio, Onstar and phone do not work in car? Radio panel lights up-Display showed that Onstar called but no sound.

Hello Lillian,

This sounds like a software issue. If the vehicle build list included the Blue Tooth option these systems are quite complex so you may not be able to sort it out by looking over the guides.

I have included a link to the owners manual for the 2011 Impala if your original one is not available.

If the fault is software related and you purchased new from a dealer your best option is to request an estimate for repair.

Last but not least....and this does not always work...a system reset could be attempted by disconnecting the battery (-) for a short period (10 Minutes)and then re connecting it.

A previous post also referred to the amplifier as the culprit.

My Buick Rendezvous is straight up dead. When we change the battery the light turns on then dies after 20 minutes. When we try to jump it, it wines then immediately shuts down.

I tried to follow the directions in the owners manual. It didn't work. So I called GM. I was told I would have to go to Onstar. Onstar said they could change my bluetooth from Spanish to English, but I would have to subscribe to Onstar.

Fuse panel

Fuse 32 under the hood. Should be a yellow 20A fuse in the middle-left area. This fuse also runs your OnStar and OBD2 systems.

From 2003-Buick-Rendezvous-Owners-Manual , this is Fuse 32 under the hood in the fuse box, the same fuse that controls the lighters is the same one that powers the OBDII system, and Onstar as well.

I hope that info helps someone else (remember comment and rated this).

Car won't is only 1 1/2 years old

When you say "won't start" do you mean the starter engages and the engine won't catch or do you mean silence when you turn the key like a completely dead battery? I had a recurring problem with silence and it turned out to be a battery cable going bad intermittently. Replaced both cables and never happened again.
