Same problem. AWD and anti-lock light came on. Took it to my buddy to replace the sensor and 3 days later the light comes on even more often. Can any harm come from just driving with these lights on.. Brakes work fine and don't need 4WD.

No harm I can think of, you just have to realize you don't have ABS (like the thousands of other vehicles on the road that don't have ABS system)

i did alot of research on other forum sites on this problem. Rendezvous and Azteck forums. Most people had their problem fixed by looking for and finding broken, bent, or pinched wires near the abs sensor. i havent looked at mine yet, but it would make sense. My problem triggers on my first turn, and never happened that fast before a sensor was replaced. I am thinking just by the mechanic moving around the wires while replacing the sensor made the bad wire worse, and that is why it happens more often, as is the case with your car.
#29 of 35 Loud Sound when stepping on gas peddle
Aug 13, 2010 (2:34 pm)
I bought a 03 Buick Rendezvous 2 months ago . From the beginning there was a loud noise when you step on the gas pedal. As soon as you let go of the pedal it stops. It sounds like exaust but I have had it to so many people and no one knows for sure. They say the whole exaust system should be replaced but when I bought it they put a new muffler on it. It also has a sound when the wheel is turned far to either side . They say the power stearing pump is fine. Buick dealership says that the sounds are the way they sound. I can't believe that. I have to turn radio very loud and can still hear it. Can anyone help? Have you had this problem?

I didn't know that you don't have the vehicle anymore. I received your e-mail before I saw that you posted back. So my e-mail will be addressing your old vehicle, sorry about the mix-up.

Mariah, will I hear from you at my email or on this board. I very rarely check this board?
The AWD and Power Lock light was still on when I traded the car in last week.

Mariah, I got a message from Socialmediagm.com re Thread ID: 1-EEEHSD, but could not find it. You said you did not see any recalls on my VIN 3G5DB03E12S530922.
There were no recalls on the AC, I said the Dealer in Grainger, IN fixed it in 2005, he fixed it for $2000. The first of my expensive problems with this GM vehicle that was made in Mexico.
No wonder American's have no jobs, thanks to GM.

I apologize for the concerns you had with your vehicle. Because you have traded in the vehicle there is nothing I can do. I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you,
