Question about 2006 Buick Rendezvous
If the liftgate opens with the key remote but not manually it is the liftgate switch that has gone bad. its under the outside liftgate handle. try to open the liftgate with your hand and you can feel the switch on the inside of the handle. the switch is held on by 2 star shaped screws. the switch should cost about 20 bucks. this happened to me also and was an easy fix. i got my part from an internet parts store but you might be able to get one from your local auto parts store also. hope this helps.

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.
