Question about 2003 Buick Rendezvous

2 Answers

I have a 2003 Buick Rendevous. My service vehicle soon light is on. I just bought it and the guy that sold it to me said that he didn't find anything wrong and this light didn't affect the engine in anyway. What does this SERVICE VEHICLE SOON light cover?

Your vehicle has two lights..one is a service engine soon and the other is a service vehicle soon,if the S.V.S light is on..its most likely an abs problem and it needs to be scanned or your alternator might not be charging and the system voltage is a little too low for some things to operate correctly,either way the car needs to be scanned and/or have the charging system checked,hope this helps

He was right in the fact that is is not the same as a Check engine light. The service vehicle soon covers many many items some of which are communications between computers,communications between the body control module and the instrument panel.While it may not affect engine performance its also not something to forget about. These take a trained technician to diagnosis properly and once diagnosed then you could decide if its something you need to address right away or if its of minor concern Good Luck

My 2003 buick century custom has dashboard lights on--how to reset Service Vehicle Soon, Trak light off, Abs light?


You need to have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes to see what the problem is ,then diagnosed , then fixed ! Then the light's will go off ! This means taking it to a qualified repair shop .
SERVICE VEHICLE SOON
The IPC illuminates the SERVICE VEHICLE SOON message in the DIC when the powertrain control module (PCM) detects certain malfunctions that are not related to the emissions system. The IPC receives a class 2 message requesting illumination from the PCM.

Ask a local mechanic to look at it for you,its similar to a vauxhall vectra for the electrics as a common engineered vehicle sold in different countries by one manufacturer often uses universal parts but its the auto box where i get lost here as in europe only old women and invalids buy a auto option where you have to pay a lot more money for the auto version compared to a manual or stick change to our cousins over the big pond

Probably pointing to one or more of your wheel speed sensors having problems. Have the ABS codes scanned on the vehicle. This should help give direction on where to look next. Also, check tire pressure, as uneven pressure can cause this condition.
