I bought a used 2003 rendezvous excellent condition ,noticed after a couple weeks guage would go to hot side if the a/c is not on i believe my heat censors are bad which kick on the cooling fans ,i have to drive with a/c on in slow traffic to keep fans running also worried about lifters make a little noise when turn car on, going to get serviced soon. Otherwise i love my buick.

That used to happen to me. Try removing the battery leads and giving them a good cleaning as well as a bit of a sanding - maybe not a great connection there. I did that and problem solved.

Grinding, thought was power steering unit..Buick service department said it was rear differential...said they would have to remove cover and add new fluid at a cost of $37.00 per quart...total repair was $239.00..Anyone else had this kind of problem..Thanks

Mar 10, 2006 (5:45 pm)
We have just discovered that our 2003 Rendevous has a leaky head gasket. The car has 42,000 mi and was just 36 mths old last month. As suggested to us by a former sales person from the dealership, we are going to insist that this be fixed, with little or no cost to us. We have purchased several autos from this dealership and we are considered preferred customers. My question is, has anyone dealt with this problem, with their dealership and if they have, have they gotten any satisfaction. We are really toying with the idea of trading this vehicle now and not even getting into this hassle. We are afraid if this problem is fixed, we will encounter more in the future. After reading the posts on this site, we also have had some of the other problems, including issues with the brakes. Thanks for any info.

I had posted the same problem earlier. My fix was cleaning and re-tightening the battery connections. You need to really tighten the connectors.

Saw your post and I have to say...I am having similar issues...when my RDV turns over, the security light comes on and my radio locks, windows lock. Automatic lights do not come one either (seat warmers do work). I have also experienced the "blinking headlight syndrome" as well. I see a number of people discussing a BCM module...perhaps that is our problem?

I am having similar problems with my RDV as posted here by a number of members...my radio and windows are locking when I turn the vehicle on...blinking headlights...I am growing concerned the car is just going to stop running while driving. I took it to my local dealership (initially purchased the vehicle at a dealership over an hour away) and first they replaced the batter. When I brought it back the second time, they said that they had no idea what was wrong with it? I took a chance, thinking perhaps it was the transponder in the key, and ordered a new key and had it programmed. That didn't work either. Now, I have seen a few of you talking about a BCM module. What exactly is this and how much does it cost to get replaced?

I had a similar problem, it turned out it was my polarized sun glasses. I purchased a new pair they were polarized, it reduced the brightnes by 50 %, I didn't have the problem when the glasses were off or if I had a non polarized pair on.

First of all, that should be a warranty issue and you should not have paid for it, assuming you're still under warranty.
Secondly, read my message #1306. If you ever hear any kind of odd noise coming from there again, immediately stop driving and get it towed to the dealer.
