SOURCE: Changing the starter solenoid on a 2000 Pontiac Montana

On your van the solenoid is attached to the starter. If you can get a solenoid separate (i don't know if you can) then you will need to take the starter off and remove the solenoid (2 screws holding it on) and the wires (on red and one black i believe) pay attention to which wire goes where because you don't want to reverse it on the new solenoid.

What size of starter for my 2001 pontiac montana?

The Montana only came with one engine size, unlike what others may think. Unfortunately, at the factory, two different starters were put in, one slightly larger than the other. I've run into this several times on the Montana. I'm not sure, but I think it has to do with whether or not your car has the heavy duty transmission(which is commonly(but not always) determined by your wheel base). The Montanas came in two different lengths.
I address it is by purchasing both, removing the old starter and matching it up to the new one, then return the one I don't use. I document it for my customer, that way they have a reference for the future.
if that isn't an option, then take the old one out, catch a ride to the auto parts store, and match it up there. That way, you are only out of pocket for one and you don't have to front for a core charge.
if that still isn't and option and you can get the car to start, drive it to the auto parts store, remove the starter in their parking lot, and match it up, then install your new one.

How to test or replace the ignition switch in 2001 Pontiac Montana

The last ignition switch I worked on was on a 1996 Pontiac sun fire. It was located on the left side of the steering column across from the key tumbler under the plastic. I found the start wires and jumpered them making the starter turn. Next I removed the switch from the column, and with a screwdriver, I turned it until the starter once again turned. I found the tumbler assembly wasn't turning far enough to start it. There was a small metal cover on the tumbler that had popped up and kept it from going farther. Hope this helps. There are some useful videos on YouTube that may help also.
