The cost of the control module is between $120 and 180 and it is located on the transfer case which should be under the drivers side and it should only take 20 minutes to replace and install . Hope this helps you.

Yes, it does help a lot and I sure do appreciate it. As you may have seen? I found and posted several recalls...a couple of the recalls are free and others you have to pay 50%. I'm not sure if some or all is still active recalls, but I'm going to call a dealership soon and find out? I will post my finding as well. Do or did you own a Buick Rainier? If so, what problems are you having or had? Thanks again for your help. Much appreciated : )

I think this vehicle should of been recalled long ago.

I agree. These should have been recalled or there should be a class action suit in the works.
Among all of the other issues I have had with my Rainier, my front differential just blew. Luckily, I can replace it myself. I just got a used low mileage one for $400.
In the 11 months I have owned this vehicle, I have invested $5000 in repairs. Added withe 10k I paid for it, this has cost me over $1 per mile to own.
What a piece of junk.

Sorry to hear about ur front differential, I have had this problem now for 4 months and no resolve from gm., I paid $19000 for this vehicle a year ago and am so sorry sorry I bought it I had a Chevy impala 2005 and gave it up cause I had 4 granddaughters so needed bigger vehicle. So upset with myself for getting the rainier.
