#2 of 312 Heated and Memory Seats
Nov 12, 2006 (5:05 pm)
I have a 2004 Buick Rainier. The heated seats and memory seats functions have quite working. Do you know where the fuse is located in the fuse box under the driver back seat? I have located the fuse box but don't know which fuse to pull to see if it is bad. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have a 2004 Ranier CXL with passenger lumbar seat. Recently when depressing the control for the lumbar adjustment, we get a clicking sound and no movement (inflation) in the lumbar pad. The GM dealer is stating that the entire assembly ($500) needs to be replaced. Has anyone experienced a similar problem?
#4 of 312 2004 Suspension Sag
May 10, 2007 (9:22 am)
When my 2004 Rainier sits with the key off the right rear of the vehicle has a noticeable sag. Measurements show that the right rear sits 3/4" lower than the left rear. However I have seen the same thing on some other Rainiers while traveling out on the highway. The dealer claims that there is nothing wrong, but I don't buy it. When he turns the key on the air shocks inflate which improves the sag, but it does not eliminate it. But shouldn't the vehicle sit level when everything is off? The vehicle has been like this since it was purchased new.

I HAVE A 2004 BUICK RANIER AND I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY AC. WHEN I TURN IT ON I GET AIR FROM ALL VENTS EXCEPT THE ONES IN THE FRONT. WOULD I HAVE TO REMOVE THE ENTIRE DASH ASSEMBLY TO SEE WHERE THE BLOCKAGE IS OR IS THERE ANOTHER WAY?

#8 of 312 2004 Buick Rainier Sensor Problems
Sep 26, 2007 (9:56 am)
HELP! My Rainier is wonderful when I first start her up in the morning. When I leave for lunch, the outside temperature reading says it is 50 degrees (when it's actually around 90) and the air conditioning only blows semi-strong. Not until I get on the highway when I'm leaving work and going around 50 MPH do I hear and feel a strong gush of air, it gets downright cold AND the outside temperature gauge creeps up to the correct temperature!! Have had the sensor and actuator replaced three times!! Dealership is dumbfounded by this as am I!!! Anyone else have this problem???

My 2006 does the same thing as did my 2003 Trailblazer. In reading the owners manual it's working as designed. If it sits for less than 4 hours and the temperature increases by less than 20 degrees you have to run it at a steady speed for a few miles/minutes for it to recognize that the increase in temperature at the sensor is real and not caused by the sun shining on the vehicle.
#10 of 312 brake problems

Has anyone had to replace their brake rotors yet on 2004 Ranier. I have a 2004 Ranier and I'm told the rotors need replaced. Kind of interesting since their were no indicator (sensors, sualing, etc.) and I'm told it's metal to metal already (59K miles). Is there a known problem that anyone is aware of? I heard prior there was rusting problems with the rotors, etc.
