Question about 2004 Buick Rendezvous
I had this same problem, I took the touchpad off by removing the two #15 torx screws from the outside of the car under the lift handle. Removed the wire clip which was very short. The touch pad comes apart. It is held together with six phillips screws. Its a pretty simple switch. I cleaned the copper contacts with copper a vinegar and salt solution. Heated the solution in the microwave and then soaked the contact plate. I also found corrosion on the terminal. Did a little soldering to fix it, put it all back together and it works fine. Hope this helps. :)

It's the liftgate touchpad. The contacts inside the switch have failed. You can replace the touchpad, or take it to the dealer to have it replaced.

If the remote works but the handle switch doesn't It is probably the handle switch. I got an OEM switch for $30+shipping. A bit tricky to replace. I used a T-15 torx bit that was 1/4 inch square drive. You also need a 1/4 universal joint and a driver of some type. I found the screwdriver style easiest. Basically you have to remove the two screws that hold it in, but a straight Torx driver won't do it. The path to the screw is not a straight one. The electrical plug is also on a short lead so don't let it fall back in the hole. Took about a half hour or so. If you aren't mechanical or patient have your mechanic do it.

there is a rod that runs from the handle down to the latch that can sometimes come loose how ever this is a pain because you have to take all the panels loose to get to it but is a easy fix once you get to it.Its just a little plastic clip that slips back into place.Hope this has been helpful to you !
