Question about 2004 Pontiac Montana

6 Answers

Passanger power window will go down but not up..and its cold out.

Notice the passanger window was open a little so went to close it nothing then hit the window to go down and that worked but could not use the button to put it back up. So now its sits 1/2 open. I would think the motor is not gone if the window goes down but not up and to scarred to try the driver side in case it won't go up.

Any ideas what might be wrong?

    It is the window regulator ...changing it is the only way to correct it.

It's probably NOT the regulator, but the switch. You can find out for sure by unplugging the switch and providing power to the plug to see if you can operate the window properly. If it works both ways when you do that, you've got a bad switch. If you don't know how to remove the switch or how to apply current to the proper wires, don't try this procedure. You could hurt yourself or do further damage. Take it to a repair shop instead (where it will probably cost you about $150 or so to fix it).

Solution #1 combined with #3 did it for me ! However, beware of something : You need to remove the switch in order to make the jumper connection. A simple way is to use plastic-coated paper-clips... Now I am sure that I need to replace the switch. I found the best deal at "switchdoctor.net" ... Thank You Kenny !

I had the same problem with my 2004 Montana. First the passenger side window was intermittently working, then it just stopped working completely. It won't roll down. The problem then spread to the driver's side window (intermittently working) and then it stopped working completely. The driver's side won't roll up at all.
Just today, I went to an auto parts store and purchased a power window switch for the driver's side. Cost me approximately $60.00. It is easy to install and replace the switch. All you need is a small flathead screwdriver to remove the bezel that holds the switches from the door panel. Both of my windows are working perfectly fine now.

My passanger front window is stuck in the down position. Could this be the window switch?


The same thing happend with my 94 lesabre. I thought it was the switch but i realized that the switch was fine. I went at the junk yard and got my self a power window motor. That is proboably what is wrong with your windows. I recommend that you get yourself new or used window motors and that sould do it!

Best of luck

Rear passanger side window won't go up or down


Window regulator most likely but before changing it out take the door panel off and apply current to the contacts of the actualy regulator. If the window goes up then switch the contacts and now it will go down. If nothing then regulator (window motor) is bad. If it works then your master control switch for all the windows is going bad.

I'm not sure which passanger door you're taking about, but i'll assume it's the front passanger door. What I think is happening is that the passanger door's not pushing the Door Switch all the way down when it's close cause the light to stay on.

First check to see if the door switch(to see the switch, open passanger door and it located lower left coner. see picture below) is work by push on. The interior light should go out when push down and on when release.
k42282_35.jpg -If switch is not working, replace door switch.
-if switch is working, adjust passanger door inward by loosing the door striker(A) bolts(B) and tipping it with a hammer. Adjust until door open/close proplery and light stay off when door is close.
