It sounds like the crankshaft angle sensor needs replacement, Here are a couple of guides that will help you solve the problem.

If the dash indicators lights are not showing, have you checked the fuses?

All the fuses are ok. Current is continues.

I think at the time of installing the camshaft. It is not properly adjusted.

Is it possible?

Hello all! I am hoping to get some help with what could possibly
be wrong with my vehicle before I bring it in to get looked at.
I am a female with not much knowledge about vehicles and want to
do my best in gathering as much information as possible so as
not to get "ripped off" by anyone.

My vehicle is a 2002 Buick Rendezvous CXL AWD 3.4 liter V-6. I
believe that is correct.

I parked my car last night, everything was working great. This
morning I put the key in and tried to turn it over and all I
hear is a aloud clicking noise. I checked all my lights and they
are all working including the stereo. I attempted to jump it
with my other vehicle and did that for about an hour and still
the same clicking noise. No changes.

Anyone have any suggestions or advice? I would really appreciate
it! Thanks!

Malina

--- Should I have left it jumped overnight? Is an hour not enough time?

You really only need to leave on for aabout 10 minutes until you get it started, it will charge itself while running. If you jumped it with no results then you can ctry to change the relay in teh underhood electrical center. Replace the starter relay with another relay that is the same, they are marked and there are a couple that you can do that with. If you get the same results, if you have a helper with you try to start it and smackthe sidehousing of the starter with a hammer if you have one. If it starts then you are going to need another starter or at least get to a garage to have them check it. See arrow where to smack it.

Car will not start, get no electric to gauges. When I press on the brake pedal I get electrical buzzes every second. Have to unhook the battery to stop the electrical buzzes. I accidentally left the key in and turned on so I could check the windows and wipers. The car was not running but he key was turned on.

Can you tell aprox where the sound is coming from? Have you checked grounds as well as the main fuses under the hood of the vehicle?

It ended up being my battery. My volt meter was reading incorrectly. I replaced the battery and everything is fine. Thanks for your time
