Question about 2002 Buick Rendezvous
We have a starting problem where sometimes it does not start and a technician has ruled out the starter.
My gas guage went from Empty to Full on its own and I never knew how much gas was in my vehicle. I was driving the other day and it stalled. Pulled into a parking lot let it sit a bit and it started right back up and I was able to drive again. Went to nearest gas station to put gas in. I put in $10 and I drove 3.4 miles and well it died on me again. I pushed the vehicle into my garage. I called around to see what could be wrong and I was told numerous things. I finally went under the vehicle where there is this clearish/white box under the Driverside area and I noticed it was corroded and dirty. I went in the house got a spray bottle with HOT WATER and sprayed it. I noticed that I had 3 prongs broke off. So I went to a local dealership for GM/Buick and I got the pins I needed to fix the problem and I went home fixed the broken pins and well now my vehicle works great and the vehicle runs great and gas guage problem was fixed as well. So for all of you that think you might have a fuel problem, fuel pump problem or gas guage problem check into the wire harness box under your vehicle and you will be able to fix it for Pennies instead of paying the $750 or more for something you cna fix at home. I love my Rendezvous and I would buy another one again.

couple things to look at
dead cell in battery
battery positive negative cables loosened up or bad wires
if you have one of the security keys with microchip
the security feature could be worn out which means replace key cylinder and they will give you new key along with it
ignition relay bad had this happen to me when vehicle was cold the moisture built up in relay and froze the relay component connections i still had to manual start vehicle with manual starter
ok my words might need little reconstruction
but you have a bad efi for the spark plug control
sometimes my mind works sometimes its stops dead in tracks
the efi= where the spark plug cables connect to the box all attached
bad coil relay
