The most common cause for this problem that I see is a failed rear "Differential oil flow valve". You would need someone to hook up to the vehicle with a scan tool and retrieve the service code to know for sure but the valve is usually the culprit in most cases. There may be a code that says something like "rear axle over temp condition" and this relates to the valve problem. There are other things that can cause the AWD light to come on so it's always good to check first before replacing parts as the valve is fairly expensive. Good luck, hope this helps!

AWD Disabled light is on in my 2002 Buick rendezvous


The problem is the AWD rear flow valve. Put drain pan under rear differential, unhook connector, unscrew flow valve bolt and pull it out. Reverse order to install. You will need to refill with 4 pints of versatrak fluid (unscrew fill plug) because when you remove the flow valve, all the versatrak fluid comes out. You can only get versatrak fluid at any GM dealership. Do not reuse old nasty versatrak fluid because that is why it got plugged up in the first place.

Awd disable light comes on as soon as I hit a bump on my 2002 Buick Rendavous


I had the same problem in my 02 Rendezvous. I took it to the dealer and the cleaned the sensors on the two front wheels. They told me that if you get a flat or new tires, the sensors can get dirty or damaged and most people are not aware that they are there. The dealer also told me that only the 02's have this issue.

AWD Light stays on


3rd dealer stated that the problem was in the differential pump valve, when the temperture sensor was giving a false reading and disconnecting the rear wheel drive. Replaced with GM Part 88896067, and it solved the problem. Mechanic stated that if it is ONLY the AWD light, then this is usually the problem. If the ABS Disable light also goes on, then it is the harness on the wheel sensor.

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!
