20 Most Recent 2002 Buick Rendezvous Questions & Answers


It means the engine computer lost the theft pass code from your ignition key. This could be caused by a bad chip in the key, or a problem with the ignition tumbler or steering column wiring (many times older high mileage vehicles the wiring breaks in the steering column causing the signal to be lost intermittently). If this happens while your Buick is running, it is warning you it MAY not restart if you turn it off because a loss of theft deterrent code was detected. If this happened when the key is turned on, but engine not started, the engine will not start as the engine computer thinks the car is being stolen.

No torque sequence on rocker arm bolts. 11 ft lbs plus 30 degrees.
A torque wrench rated for inch lbs should be a finer adjustment.

What type of diagnostic check did you receive? Did you only have codes read? If the vehicle was partly disassembled then maybe a plug connection was not put on completely, a vacuum line was left off or a clamp was left loose on the duct that connects the air filter to the throttle body. You will need to look it over or bring it make. Please let me know if there is anything else. Good Luck.

Sorry but the mechanical part of the ignition switch is not part of the vehicles security system. Either something has been placed inside the key cylinder, you are using the wrong key or for some reason the lock cylinder lock pins have fallen inside the key cylinder. Please take a closer look at the cylinder. See if something is inside and can be picked out. Any questions. Please write back. Good Luck.

If after checking the brake fluid level and brake reservoir and its sensor, as well as the parking brake, then the problem could very possible be a broken wheel sensor wire. That was my problem in my Buick rendezvous, and my great mechanic fixed it.

The wire is LT GRN.

The security light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM. (Theft Deterrent Module) The TDM is what tells your computer that the correct key is being used and that it is "OK" to allow the vehicle to start and run. These 3 parts must be in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending important signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, (normally due to a failing/broken part) the car goes into antitheft mode. The car misinterperates this and thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is NOT getting that signal from YOUR specific key. There is where the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. So basically, if that light is on, your system has some sort of failing part. This can start as an intermittent "no start", to your vehicle not running for days at a time, to the vehicle NEVER starting again. The problem is electrical and computer based, so don't count on an easy reset button, or the problem fixing itself. The hard part is isolating which part is the problem. You can spend a thousand dollars through a mechanic very easily. I have had great luck with bypassing the entire system. This way the problem will never return. It actually CAN'T ever return because it is eliminated. This can also be done yourself at a much cheaper cost. Read through this link very carefully. You'll find alot of information and pictures, along with ways to help you fix this.

Given the amount of electronic's ( computers ) on your vehicle ,it could be a lot of thing's . Hooking up a factory or professional grade scan tool that can communicate with all the control modules on the vehicle should be the first step in the diagnostic problem . Checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes , communication between module errors etc.....
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that has the proper diagnostic equipment to check it out .
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Driver door lock switch
• Front passenger door lock switch
• Door lock actuators in each of the doors
• Door lock system fuse into the BCM (BCM D 25A fuse)

BCM Functions
The body control module (BCM) is capable of accomplishing multiple body control functions. Components directly connected to the BCM are controlled by the BCM outputs. The BCM can control its outputs based on input information it obtains from sensors and switches that are directly connected to the BCM, or by receiving information from other vehicle systems connected to the class 2 serial data link. The BCM evaluates this information and controls certain body systems by commanding an output on or off.
The BCM is also capable of commanding other vehicle systems to control functions that are not directly wired to and/or controlled by the BCM. The BCM accomplishes this task by sending specific messages on the class 2 serial data link. The vehicle system capable of performing such function will respond to the BCM message.
The BCM controls/monitors the following functions:
• Audible warnings
• Indicators control
• Interior lighting
• Exterior lighting
• Power/automatic door locks
• Keyless entry
• Content theft deterrent
• Personalization
• Serial Power Modes
• Electrical Power Management

Oh my, there is no reset. You would need to remove the pump module and check the gauge sender part, maybe the float arm got jostled or bent when installing.
Sorry to tell you this, it will have to be redone. This time when you pull the unit out of the tank, take a moment to connect the battery, connect the electrical connector to the pump module, turn the key to on, then check that raising and lowering the float arm makes the gauge read right.
It's either this way, or let it be and figure your gas left in tank by number of miles driven.
