Question about 2001 Pontiac Montana

1 Answer

I have a whistle or humming noise from the front of 05 Montana.

It seems to be coming from the windshield area. Sometimes we hear it on the right side then other times from the middle of the windshield. At
other times it seems to be right ahead of the driver in the instrament panel. This is on an 05 Montana.
The strangest thing is that it only does it it the cold or windy weather. the windshield base down by the wipers has been resealed all around the base. We still hear it. I bought it used in June 07 and did not hear the noise until late Oct. 07. Even on cold windy days it may not make the noise, it comes and goes. It does not make the noise at lower speeds, only above 50. It's a hit and miss kind of thing. ?????????

    Dear dealt_soul we can hear the humming when the heat is on very low or not on at all. Makes no difference if vent is turned to vent coming in or vent coming in and also to floor

    Can you hear it when it is very cold and you have the heat on full blast?

Put wide tape on different areas of the windshield edge as a test to see if the noise changes.Then you may know where the noise originates and can correct the noise.
Just by chance,it is a wind noise? and not a front wheel bearing going bad?which is common on these vehicles and can create a humming at different speeds.Next time when the hum shows up turn the steering wheel slightly left and right at road speed and if you can change the hum,it's 99% a wheel bearing.

it seems that you are having connecting issues. under the dash are lots of connectors and through vibration the often times wiggle loose. also they get a fair amount of heat exposure from the climate control. this makes them brittle and they tend to short out. looking under the dash and checking fuses and relays would be the first step in isolating the problem. please rate this solution thanks and good luck.

SOURCE: 2000 pontiac montana wipers stuck

This has happened a couple of times on my 1999 Pontiac Montana. Here's what I did to fix. Open the hood. Remove the shield over the the wiper cam mechanism on the passengers side. This is easy to access. Road salts and other dust and dirt gets in there and causes the sticking problem. Spray WD-40 in between the parts. Get in there with that little red spray straw and saturate it good, flush junk out. Get in the car and try the wipers. If I remember, you might have to manually place that little knob or lever on top of the cam in the opposite position to get it to resync, but try it first. Be sure the wipers are off when you're spraying the WD-40 so you don't injur your hands. I've had to do this twice and it worked both times.

On top of the window motor there is a timing cam -- there is a little tab on the bottom that is most likely broken or bent. You need to replace the cam.

Loud whistling noise when 65 to 70 miles an hour


This is sometimes caused by moulding lifting around the windshield and on the panel housing the wiper arms. Sometimes the moulding is affected by temperature. The best thing to do is trial and error taping of a small section of the moulding or the panel covering the wiper arms. What is happening is an edge is poking up and catching the wind. By taping a small section, you are smoothing out the edge that is making noise. Once found, just try removing the tape and then use a clear silicon to fill in the edge gap.
You would be getting water in the vehicle if the wind was coming through the front bottom gasket of the windshield

I have a 06 Freestar that makes a whistling noise. Very annoying and random. I can't associate it with anything. Sometimes it doesn't do it at all but mostly it does. Never when stopped or going below...


LOL , We had this issue arise before and it turned out to be that when the audio guys at American TV installed the car stereo speakers in our door , they tore the plastic sealing membrane on the inside of the door under the door panel.
To locate the leak you will need a passenger with good hearing .
drive into the wind until the noise starts and have the passenger guess which door the whistling is coming from... remove the door trim panel and be sure the membrane is intact and sealed... pay close attention to the mirror area... as they are prone to leak and cause a whistle...

Hope this helped!

05 Explorer - whistling noise


Chances are the windshield is not seales properly. Have a glass shop do this for you.
If you are curious, make sure you have an extra set of keys ( just incase the doors lock ), start the engine,windows all up,blower fan on high,let engine run for about 10 - 15 minutes and spray around windshield with garden hose, air bubbles will appear where the un-sealed portion is located at.
Please rate this.

Loud humming noise from front end of Durango 4 x 4


You have a hub/wheel bearing going out. You need to jack up the vehicle on each side. Grab the top and bottom of the wheel and try to move it in/out at the top and bottom. If this does not work then roll the wheel as fast as you can and see if you can hear which one it is. Good Luck.

Hi, 2possible suggestions that will help you, when dealing with a wind noise it is almost always visible in the affected area by seeing a redich resedue caused by entering dust particles,

you could also use''masking'' duckt tape to seal off all your suspect areas(starting with the r/h section of the windshield) then by trail and error systematically remove piece by piece of this tape untill your noise is located, then you can decide on what to do with the ''leak''
