Question about 2003 Buick Rendezvous

1 Answer

2005 Buick Rendezvous interior lights won't turn off after key is turned in the ignition. They only turn off a few minutes after the engine is turned off. They do turn off (eventually) if only the door is opened but the key is not turned in the key switch.

I know more about systems design than I do about your exact car.It seems that when your ignition is turned on,it may energize or de-energize a relay to turn off the interior lights and turn on daytime running lights if you have them.Is it a 2003?A less likely possibility would be within the ignition.I had a Buick many years ago and had problems with the ignition and it was common for Buick.I do not know if they have improved.The only thing is,I am not sure if the relay would be solo,like a starter relay,or on a circuit board.Hopefully it is a solo design because it would be VERY inexpensive compared to replacing a board.Call a Buick dealer,or perhaps if you have a regular mechanic,and they will know how it is activated.For a regular mechanic,I always recommend a AAA approved shop.They are the most honest and just as good as a dealer.If you do not approve this because of my answer,I am fine with that.However,please message me anyways. gmccarthy86 hotmail Good luck,Greg In subject please put fix ya so I know it isn't junk.It will be good.

2003 Buick rendezvous hatch won,t open


Spray the lock cylinder with WD40, work the key in and out several times, then before you try to turn it put the key in the cylinder and rap the head of the key with the handle of a screwdriver a few times, then try to turn your key.

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

Dash lights wont go off drains battery


It sounds like the instrument panel module may be frozen or locked up. Disconnect the battery negative cable for 5 minutes. Reconnect the cable, start the engine and turn back off, see if the lights go out.
If lights are still on, you may have an ignition switch problem.
Good luck.

2004 Buick Rendezvous For a couple of weeks the


The oil system reminder needs to be reset so the computer knows you had the oil changed. The procedure is in the owners manual but can be tough to find so you might have to do a little searching for it. Many of the GM vehicles can be reset by turning the ignition key to "run" [but don't crank or start the engine] and then fully depressing and releasing the accellerator pedal smothly three times within 5 seconds. Turn the key off, wait about 10 seconds and restart the engine to see if the reset was successful. Check your manual first as not all GM's can be reset this way and yours may be different.
