Question about Buick Enclave

2 Answers

I left the key in the ACC position of the 2009 Buick Enclave for 3 hours. When I came back to the car, the rear tail lights were on, the key was stuck, everything electrical was dead and the Malfunction indicator light was on and there was a soft clincking sound coming fromunder the hood.

Most likely, you just have a dead battery. Once your battery reaches a critically low point, the electronics simply go nuts... lights won't turn off, etc. until it's absolutely dead. Just try putting a battery charger on the it or use a safe jump starting technique- you should be fine.

Good luck.

How do i change the rear turn signal bulb on a 2009 buick enclave?

Read the owner manual. Note that 2008 & 2009 manuals have incorrect information. Locate 2010 Enclave on internet. It has correct description and bulb number. Bulb is a 7443, NOT a 3157.

My key is stuck on acc. Car is off, no power and cannot move the gear shift or remove the key. What should I do?

check the fuses at the front passenger foot well, the middle one on the top that's halfway pulled is for the solenoid that releases the key. its also for the rear right turn signal so you should check the wiring there too.

Key stuck in buick enclave in acc position. Battery dead. Can you jump a car with key in this position

if acc is the one before the starter then no as you have to turn the key in order to start sorry! but if it is lighting the dash up with battery and engine lights then u can short the rear of the ignition barrel by taking off the cowling {around ignition} then there should be wires soldered to the back of what we call the black [or white] box. once youve charged the battery you can cross the back wires using a screw driver, when you hear it turn over you can determine which is the live feed and cross with starter wire. failing this the best i can advise is removing cowling and taking black{or white} box off the back of the ignition barrel end and then you will be able to drive it until you get a new ignition barrel hope that helps
