The check engine light is on because the engine management system has detected a fault, you need to pull the code(s) and follow that they indicate...
Battery would have little to do with the light on condition, but removal of the battery may erase codes... Find the error and attend to that.

2003 Buick Rendezvous turning over, sometimes starts and sometimes won't, brand new battery?

How long since a tune-up? Check for applicable trouble codes. Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free.
Have to test when problem is ongoing, if it cranks good, but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
With intermittent issues, you have to test when problem is ongoing.

I think you're over your head here. Take it to a professional mechanic and let her sort it out. Sounds like your alternator isn't putting out the correct voltage.

Engine don't start and have a clicking sound

you should check and see the batttery smart visor indicator (if applicable - see owners manual)
this may be that the battery has been drained and does not have enough power to rotate the starter. lights, dashboard, instruments light up ok as the voltage is there but the power (amperage) is low. please refer to owners manual on how to recharge your battery. bare in mind that removing the baterry from the care will reset systems (audio, alarm) and you wil need to recode them by using the codes provided with the car.
