    My 1998 Montana has the exact same problem! I hear a clicking noise, and can work the door manually, but it will not operate automatically.

    Rear bumper reflectors are set into the bumper. The plastic covering them is some sort of plastic that is now melting into goo. What to do? Any recalls?

I went to bulldogsecurity.com and looked up the wiring diagram for this vehcle. However, prior to checking this part, I would check to see if you have a blown fuse. It doesn't hurt and only takes a few minutes. There should be a fuse for that either somewhere on the side of the dash or near the brake pedal area. If not it may be under the hood, but it should be inside the vehicle. You may have multiple fuse boxes. If it has (2) sliding doors it will have a wire for the auto doors in each kick panel (under the plastic trim/molding) when you open the door and look down you will see all of the trim/molding it should snap out or may be held in place with a screw or (2). Once you remove that you should see the wires. It says for the left side it is either light blue or black and the right side is definitely light blue. Trace this wire until you find out where it ends (the motor or switch to control the auto doors) Then test the switch/motor to see if it is bad.

1999 Pontiac Montana power door lock is stuck and will not open by power button. Also cannot open manually. How do I get to it to releace the lock


Do the other locks operate by keyless remote? I ask this to eliminate the possibility of the issues lying with your batteries in the key fob? If not you might have to use the key in the passenger door.or the back hatch?

My 2005 Honda Odyssey driver's side manual sliding door won't open/unlock - I hear the lock mechanism moving when I activate the power lock/unlock, but the door cannot be opened no matter what i...


More than likely the connecting rod that goes from the door lock actuator to the locking mechanism itself came unattached. These rods are usually held in place by a small piece of plastic that the rods "pop" in and out. The only other thing i can imagine possible is that the door lock itself is actually seized up. In order to attempt to fix this, you would have to remove the door side panel to see the inner workings of the door, and this is quite difficult on most side sliding doors (i have a 2000 pontiac montana w/dual sliding doors). Hope this can help you solve your problem.

2005 pontiac montana drivers door wont lock with remote but will lock from inside switch or with key on outside...it WILL unlock with remote as well as all other doors...


put your ear to the door and try to open it with the remote, if you hear it trying to open, then most likely you door lock actuator is bad and needs replacement. It may have disconnected itself from the door lock lever as well, but i suggest opening up the door panel to better ***** the situation. It all points to the actuator.

I own a 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6, there is very little heat coming from the heater, a/c working fine, fan blowing full capacity. Could it be the thermostat.


probably the blend door not opening fully. Do you hear a clicking under the dash by passenger's feet? If not, try calibrating the system:
  1. Place the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  2. With the Mode knob in the PANEL position, press and hold the AC button for 5 seconds.
  3. Rotate the Mode knob fully counterclockwise.
  4. Rotate the Mode knob fully clockwise.
  5. Rotate the Mode knob fully counterclockwise.
  6. Release the AC button.
  7. Wait 40 seconds for the HVAC control module to self-calibrate.
  8. Start the vehicle.
If this doesn't work, your actuator may have failed. Look under the dash to see if any of the actuators on the heater box are trying to turn when you change the temperature setting. Unfortunately, I cannot find aftermarket parts for your heater, so if the door isn't working you may need to go to the pontiac dealer. Let me know if you have questions.

I would check the overhead buttons there are two one opens the door, and the other beside it that shows the van crossed out, disables the electric sliding door feature. try playing with that, Also remember, that vehicle must be in PARK for the electric sliding door to open. Make sure the power lock on that door is working, and check the child safety lock when you have it open by the doors catch. Hope that Helps You.

1999 Pontiac Montana passenger sliding door stopped working.


Verify the wiring harness which passes under plastic step & carpet at front passenger side. This wiring harness goes from the firewall to the pillar on the right side and some have crimped connectors in them to act as junction between two or more wires (ususlly the 12volt feed), which deteriorate with time, especially with Salt & Water. Then the electric sliding door stops working and even driver the electric seat can loose power.
