Question about 2002 Buick Rendezvous

2 Answers

Car wont start. Error on all dashboard systems. lights/doors work.

Drove car 10 feet, stopped for 3 min and went back to start it. Sounded like the starter was trying to engage but then quickly no sound from the starter. Got a jump but it would not start at all. The dashboard said it was out of fuel (no way as it had about 1/2 a tank), odometer gave reading but for Park/Neutral/Drive it said "error". Security light, oil, all flashing.
Doors locked with the remote so there was juice for that.

When we disconnected his battery from mine, we checked to see if there was any juice in our battery and it indicated dead (no spark with the cables). Totally lost here.

    I have the same problem. Car wont start, lights/doors work, but locks, radio, nothing else will. I unplugged the battery cables, and my car started right up. Found out it was the BCM in my car.

You need to take the car to the dealer, because you need to recalibrate the electric throttle body with a TECH 2 Scanner, because the system went into a Limp mode.

Charging system, Replace the alernator it shorting out. In order for a alternator to work the rotor create a magnetic flux this flux is what gives the battery it charge. In order to creat this flux which is a A/C current it needs to be a D/C current there in place is a wheatstone bridge or a half wave rectifier. now why the light show? light bulds do not know the difference from A/C to D/C .power is power to it. replace alternator.

You need to reset the theft system. To do this, try to start it. It should start and die. Then after it dies and the theft light is flashing, leave the key on for 10 minutes. After 10 min, the theft light should go out. After the theft light goes out, turn off the key. Count to 5, then restart it. Then it should work.

Welcome to the world of BMW's. return the car to the seller. you got a bad one. You got an electrical short draining the battery. Bring a blank check and sign it over to the dealer. They're going to have to run through the entire electrical system to find the short. That work alone is worth more than the a used up 2001 325i.

If you have not found the problem yet, check the transmission interlock. Sounds like the shifter interlock switch may not be engaging to allow the starter to activate!
