Hello and welcome to FixYa!


If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.


If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's service life and replacement will be necessary.


You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Buzzing noise


Could be a relay or just about anything. You'll have to figure out if it is coming from under the dash or from the engine compartment and try to pinpoint the noise to proceed.

Sounds like a charging system issue. Just because the alternator itself tested fine doesn't mean it's getting power to the car and battery. Charge the battery and start the car (with everything connected normally, including alternator). While car is idling, disconnect the battery (negative post wI'll do). If car dies, there's a problem with the alternator wiring/harness. Once the vehicle is running, the alternator should provide plenty of power. Check voltage at battery (from alternator) and should be around 14V. Check alternator fuse.
Could be the voltage regulator in the alternator going out, which would need a new alternator.

2002 Buick Rondevoux 3.4 V6. Makes a noise from the engine like a buzzing sound. Sounds seems to come from power steering pump. I had it changed twice and still have the sound. Car is quit for twenty...


The GM 3.4 v6 engine is known to have Intake manifold gasket failure problems. IMHO, I do not believe this is fuel pressure release valve problem, since you would have fuel leaking. If it is more of a whistle rather than buzzing, i would suspect manifold gasket.

Wont start


Hi
Had a similar problem with my x type 2.5 petrol, only had the car 1 day went to start it nothing happend all the lights came up on the dash but the engine wouldn't start and the immobiliser light stayed on. Spoke to Jaguar they had no idea and I couldn't get it to them. After disconnecting the battery trying to reset the immobiliser phoned and auto locksmith they came out and discovered the end of the key with the blade had lost it's coding and the immobiliser was not disarming, they reprogrammed the key and the car started no problem. As far as i know there is no way past the immobiliser. Hope this helps.
