: the contact stated while driving at night, the headlights and the dashboard electronics failed to illuminate intermittently. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who replaced the BCM module; however the problem was not corrected. Upon further inspection the dealer could find no problem.

Rendezvous 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The headlights on my 2002 Buick, Rendezvous kept going out for no apparent reason. I took the car to the shop (vanatta Buick in vestal NY) and they said it could be the body control module. They scanned the data output and found several codes that indicated a malfunction of this unit. I had them replace the unit. They covered the cost of the unit and I payed the labor.. the problem has not occured sense the unit was replaced. It is my opinion that this malfunciton is a very serious problem. In my situation the several times that the lights went out, II was not in a dangerous place (ie on a super highway going 65 mph) if I had been in that situation, the second or two the headlights and dash lights were out could have had fatal consequences-- such as a deer crossing the road or worse yet, a person on the side of the road.
