Engine wont crank

Hi, I am working on Buick rendezvous 2007 engine crank but wont start and check engine or any caution light is not appearing on the dash. Diagnostic tester is also not showing any trouble codes.

Before problem was that I changed the head gasket becasue the head gasket was blown with oil and water mixture took place. But now everything is fixed engine crank perfectly but wont start No check engine light appears.

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 2007 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.

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?

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.

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?

It sounds like the battery is bad, sometimes when you jump them it will not help. Try to change the battery out first.

If no results then you can try to change the relay in the under hood 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 tap the side housing 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.

Does it crank but not start? Or no crank(dead) with key in start position? And why did you replace these parts?

Electrical problem
2003 Buick Rendezvous 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 47,000 miles

I am currently stationed in Italy. I took my truck to have a radio installed. The battery died while they were working on the car. They were able to get the radio to work, but the truck won't start. The ignition will turn and lights will come on, but the truck will not cut on. I believe there is an issue with the anti theft device. The truck has been taken to serveral electrical shops but since they are not use to dealing with american vehicles they cannot pinpoint the issue. I have been unable to locate a wiring diagram as well as find a solution for my problem. I am now deployed to Afghanistan and my wife and kids are stuck in Italy with a vehicle that does not work. Any assitance would be great

Is it a CX or a CXL?
You can try a relearn of the anti-theft system
Be sure to use original (Black) key with transponder chip on it

GM PASS LOCK RELEARN- Ignition to "run" position,
approx ten minutes security light will go off
Turn key "off" and wait 5 seconds
Repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 relearns.
Turn key off, then start it

Ok, I attempted this step, the individual that is "fixing" the truck attempted these steps and it did not work. The car will turn over if he temporarily bypasses the anti-theft, but it will shut off after a minute or so. We still cannot figure out what is causing this issue. Can you please give more advise on how to correct this. I ask that you keep in mind that I am in Italy and we do not have access to good quality mechanics. Is there a way to permanently bypass the anti-theft system?

It is a CXL

I replaced the driver airbag and dashboard airbag along with the module and front sensors. Now it wont turnove or crank. The radio doesnt turnon but the background lights on it do, windows wont roll up or down, and horn wont honk. When I turn the key in the ignition, honk, or push the buttons to roll windows down the relays click. I hooked up the snap on scanner to it but it wont read the rendezvous's computer. I checked every everything I unplugged and about a zillion times and everything seems to be in order. Im stuck like chuck! Any ideas?

Check your large fuses in your underhood fusebox
. Check your starter relay. There is also a fuse in the center console block that deals with starting.

Check the starter relay. Check the ignition switch. Check all wiring to and from the battery. Make sure the main fuses are good under the hood in the fuse block.
