#88 of 193 Enclave Battery Dies After 36 hrs of no Driving
Oct 06, 2010 (6:52 pm)
I have a 2009 Buick Enclave that has 26000 miles. About two months ago (24000 miles) the battery started dieing after 36 hours of no driving. Jumped it and took it to dealer -- could not find a problem. Dealer told me not to jump it if it happened again, but haul it in, which occurred about a week later. Could not find problem this time either, but replaced battery. Dealer told me that some of the electronic modules may wake up if the keys are left inside the vehicle (switch not on) and to never leave keys in car (seems silly to me). They also told me that On Star wakes some of the modules for its diagnostic tests and that these electronics may not be going back to sleep -- another strange phenomenon. Problem continues to occur, a total of 7 times within the past 2 months. If the car is not driven at least every other day, the battery dies. Remember, this is a new battery. Dealer is stilled dumbfounded.

They replaced the turn signal in 08, the left blinker is now blinking extremely fast, the day I took it in it behaved, now it happens every time I want to turn left.
Could this have anything to do with the replacement? electrical?

Typically a really fast turn signal is an indication that the bulb is burned out.

If this is not indicating that the bulb is out, I would definitely recommend taking it into your dealer of choice. If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact me directly.

I was ready to go buy a new battery until I read this post.
I have a 2009 that just started doing this.
Does anyone know if this is indeed an electrical problem that needs to be resolved or is it just a 2 year old battery is bad...

I would encourage you to take your vehicle into your local GM dealership to be diagnosed. Please keep us posted on any information.

#96 of 193 Power Seat Movement 2011 Enclave
Sep 28, 2011 (5:53 am)
I have a 2011 Buick Enclave purchased new at local dealer and the seat moves when stopping or starting. Dealer denies any problem, GM won't help. looking for others with similar problem to help find resolution from GM and selling dealer.
I have been back to the selling dealer 4 times, of which 3 they attempted to "fix" this issue, however they maintain that they dont feel the movement. Any other person driving for more than 5 minutes always feel it move. Field service rep reviewed and drove (so I was told) this vehicle and said he doesnt feel it move, but authorized replacment parts in track of seat. No one representing GM has driven after last pick up at dealer, reported it sill moves, they are not interested. GM headquarters has entered the picture, but is soley going on info from dealer and field rep only...
Had independent service center pull seat out, found problem (nylon bushing and hole in seat frame) and notified GM - sent pictures and summary evaluation, who notified dealer...no one is interested is acknowledging this as a problem - at GM or selling dealer.
I took think it is a safety issue. The NHTSA would like to help but dont have enough (or any) complaints YET on this specific issue. Also reported to Illinois Consumer Protection Agency States Attorney's office who is now looking into this complaint. Very frustrating to spend this kind of money, bought American Made only to support our workers (had no problems with my MDX) and have them all say...tough luck!
#97 of 193 Buick Enclave leaking oil
Oct 02, 2011 (9:19 am)
Hello everyone. I have a 2008 Buick Enclave its sad and I am not happy. This vehicle have been giving me problem after problem. I have it appears the same problems listed by others, from new transmission, power stearing noise.. and now the leaking of engine oil. I have taken my vehicle into the dealership again! were a dye has been placed inside to locate the leak. The cost of repairs currently is unknwon, it being GM the cost could be in the thousands.
Question, should I let go and just let the vehicle die leaving it sitting on the street?
Reading each of your past and current posts lets me know I am not the only living this nightmare!!
