2002 Buick Rendezvous clicking sound when attempting to start. Two years on a 3 year battery, voltage 14.8VDC (engine running) measured across +post on the fuze/relay box and body grounding point. After engine is shutdown measured 10VDC at same location. Pulled battery and measure 12.4VDC on the bench. Have not had cranking amperage tested. I've had this problem before with the car and pulled all of the battery cables to clean and inspect, same with the body ground connections. This time around the car goes about 10 start cycles and then will not turn over. Works fine if I jump the battery but won't start after that unless I put the battery on a charger. I suspect a weak battery but also want to make sure I'm not missing an intermittant ground or something to do with a bad relay in the system.
have the same problem?
