    What do you mean by with a brass punch? Knock the ring off?

Disconnect negative battery cable, unplug wiring harness to fuel tank, disconnect filler tube, disconnect return lines, place jack with a board on it between jack and tank, remove support straps, remove the 4 mounting bolts, lower and then remove tank and pull back. Then with a BRASS and ONLY BRASS PUNCH and a hammer, knock the ring on top of tank loose counter-clockwise, then pull out sending unit and pump carefully and disconnect the two carefully.

    On the top of the tank is a metal ring, under the ring inside the tank is the sending unit and the fuel pump. You need to use a brass punch to knock the ring loose. Brass punch is used so there is no spark

I just replaced the fuel pump in my 2002 buick rendezvous. Now, the car starts, but the fuel gauge doesn't work. When I turn the car on, the needle goes to full and stays there, then low fuel alarm...

Oh my, there is no reset. You would need to remove the pump module and check the gauge sender part, maybe the float arm got jostled or bent when installing.
Sorry to tell you this, it will have to be redone. This time when you pull the unit out of the tank, take a moment to connect the battery, connect the electrical connector to the pump module, turn the key to on, then check that raising and lowering the float arm makes the gauge read right.
It's either this way, or let it be and figure your gas left in tank by number of miles driven.

I have a problem with my fuel gage when i start the car the engine service soon coming out and then the low fuel light coming also! what should i do?

General Motors has a terrible reputation for fuel gauge senders going bad in any or all of their vehicles. your fuel tank has to come out and a new sender needs to be installed. the part from the dealer will cost between 100 and 150 dollars, and the labor will probably cost you 2 to 3 hundred dollars.

My 2004 buick rendezvous fuel gauge reads full all the time. once in a great while it will go to 1/2 a tank

Your Fuel sender unit is defective , Bad news is it's in the Fuel tank and it's also part of the fuel pump module assembly which may cost a lot of $$ to fix.

Fuel pump no power

Check the fuse in the under hood fuse block. If it is good then swap the relay with another of the same number from the fuse box. Good Luck
