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
ignition coil
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

tahoeman
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

What causes a 2002 buick rendezvous to not start


Check the connections and have the battery tested. The other components (starter & alternator) can also be tested.

02 Buick Rendezvous won't start


Does it crank but won't start or is it a crank no start? Does the starter solenoid click or no click is heard? You need to state in detail what sort of testing has been done and the results along with detailed symptoms in order to help you better.

My 2004 buick rendezvous won't start sometimes. If it's in neutral and rolling it will or if the starter is jumped. I have replaced the starter already. What could it be?


Sounds like the neutral safety switch has gone bad. These are on almost every kind of vehicle now. The switch prevents the car from starting unless the automatic transmission is in park or neutral. For a manual transmission, the clutch pedal has to be depressed. On a motorcycle, the clutch handle has to be depressed. You can pick up the switch at any parts store near you and replace it yourself if you are mechanically inclined. If not, I'm sure a tech or dealership will be glad to help you with the problem.

Good luck!

2004 buick rendezvous sometimes won't start. clicks but won't turn over. replaced starter, battery, and ignition switch. what now??


We just went through this with our 2003 Rendevous. Clicking like crazy but wouldn't start. Replaced the starter but still doing the same thing. Our next step was going to be replace the battery (which tested well) and the ignition assembly. Out of frustration, I hit the top of the hood and the headlights came on!! Further investigaton proved that the problem was a corroded ground wire on the battery. Hope this helps

My 2002 Buick Rendezvous starts sometimes but other times after starting perfectly it just grinds , but after an hour or so it starts ....someti


The starter has a Bendix that pops in when you start to spin the starter--it or the contacts that engage it could be bad. Had this issue with a few vehicles---starts fine and next time click or will grind and the Bendix is not engaged.

The starter if removed can be examined and or tested---My last one on a 4 runner with it out was able to see burnt contacts and decided not to replace just them but got a rebuilt starter and problem was cured.

May be a good idea for a mechanic to look into this.

Turn the ignition key car want say anything. the key turn but car want start. 2002 buick rendezvous.


If you hear a click sound near the motor and your battery is good, you may want to have your starter checked out.

Where is the starter located on my 2002 buick rendezvous?


a single click usually means the starter. multiple rapid clicks while the key is in start position usually means battery...if battery bad, could be due to alternator, but you likely would have noticed a battery light on the dash while driving before.
