#41 of 67 Buick Enclave key stuck in ignition
Apr 30, 2012 (2:31 am)
I have a 2011 Enclave and after coming home from church parked my car in the yard as my husband was doing something in the carport. At about 3am he tried to move the car into the garage with his key. (only had car 3 weeks have never used his key) His key is now stuck in ignition and car is completely dead. From everything I have read here it sounds like the battery is dead for some reason. I did not lock car after getting out this morning. Don't have a clue what could have run the battery down. ANY ANSWERS??????

I had mine in for service 2 weeks ago. It sat idle since then.
When I tried to start it today - dead battery!!!!!!!!!!
They replaced the battery last year and reprogrammed it after I started calling the tow truck to come get it every time the battery went dead.
Now it is happening again.
I like the idea of a mass lawsuit.

Hello! I have a 2010 Enclave and am having and have been having the same problem you stated in your post. I am frustrated since after purchasing a battery for $180 the first time it happened it has been replaced twice! Ridiculous in a car only 2 yrs old with such a big price tag!

Here's what I do and I have not had a dead battery since. First, every time you leave the car LOCK THE DOORS RIGHT AWAY WITH THE REMOTE KEY CHAIN. Do not wait for the interior light to dim. 2nd, Before you shut the engine off let it idle in park for about a minute, especially if you've been in reverse. This assure that the reverse camera and back up sensors have completely shut down. I learned these things from actual people who have figured this out. Not a $22,000 a year service writer who does'nt even know these forums exsist. Anyway, try it. It's free and you've got nothing to lose.

I just had wanted to check in to see if these battery replacements have been performed through one of our dealerships? The factory warranty on your Buick should have covered the factory battery. If you would like for us to check into this further, please contact us via email at socialmediagm.com with more details, including: your name and Edmunds username, phone and address, the last 8 of your VIN and current mileage, and the name of your involved dealership.

I am taking in to dealer tomorrow and hope they find resolve. We bought the replacement because it was 8pm and no dealer open at that hour. I have two toddlers and this is our only family vehicle. Waiting til the next morning and having it towed to a dealer was not an options due to needing vehicle. We purchased battery because after the one in car was checked and we were told it was a dead battery we figured a new battery would fix our problem. Since the second issue I have kept my boys from watching the enterainment system, and am worried everytime we are out that we will be stranded. I pray the problem can be fixed tomorrow since having a $600 a month car payment is enuf without having to pay vehicle repair costs!
