Sometimes the alarm gets tripped when the battery has been disconnected as the system thinks someone is trying to steal the vehicle when it loses power. Usually if you reconnect the battery [and the alarm sounds] then lock and unlock the drivers door with the key or the remote on the key fob it will reset the alarm and everything will work again. I've had to try a couple of times to get these systems to reset so you may have to do the same. There may also be a procedure listed in your owners manual for this situation so I'd take a look there too. Good luck, hope this helps out!

When I had a similar problem, the culprit turned out to be a loose battery cable. Is the negative cable tightly secured to the battery post, with nothing between the metal clasp and the lead terminal?

On a 2004 Buick rendezvous there is a little red light that keeps blinking expect when the car is running. I'm pretty sure its draining my battery. Any suggestions?

That little red light is your anti-theft system and it does not drain enough power to drain your battery unless your car is sitting for a year. I would check for a draw. Unhook your negative battery cable and hook a test light between the cable and the negative terminal. If the light lights up brightly, then you have something draining the battery at a significant rate. I start by unhooking the main cable off of the alternator, this is a prime place to start for a battery drain. If unhooking the alternator does not dim the test light then move on to the power distribution center and pull fuses and relays one at a time until the light dims, this will at least narrow down the circuit that needs attention.

Car won't start unless jumped off. Can the fuseable link on the postive cable prevent the car from starting?

Difficult to say. If you are connecting the jumper cables to the battery posts, the only thing you are doing is boosting the voltage in the battery.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery and the starter to check the cables.
