Question about 1999 Pontiac Montana

My 1999 pontiac montana rear sliding power door will not work

My power sliding door when closes will close almost up to the contacts and then opens again as if the cable needs some more slack. When I push the door it does close.

    My problem was similar to the 1999 but I have a 2003 pontiac montana.I have cleaned the contacts many times until contacts were shiny and about 1% of the time it closes the way it should.

Hi there,

this can be stuck contacts on the door. better to check the sliding contact point for any dirt debris on the slide or it may need some lubricant for easily sliding.

I have had this problem for months now, the door will act as though it is closing, then as soon as it does, it pops right back open. we have taken it to the mechanic several times and they have been unable to fix it. i am wondering if i can just remove this feature and make it a regular sliding door?

The door closing mechanism is either hydraulic/pneumatic or mechanical. I doubt mechanical systems are still used, i.e. with pairs of cables pening or closing the doors. However should yours be mechanical then there is some play between the motor and the gears which winds the cam attached to the cables. Here it becomes critical when there is a play because even if one door has got this play it will affect the entire mechanism and thereafter it can be fixed after a lot of trial and error. The best thing to do in such cases is to attach two magents, one on the door frame and another on the door itself such that when it comes near enough, the magnetic pull acts as the final force which will give impetus to the door to close fully.
However it the operation is hydraullic/pneumatic then there is a adjustment on the arms(door closer/opener) which need to be adjusted for the door to reach the end of its motion. Here ech door has this adjustment to be done to compensate for wear & tear of usage. But this problem is eaier to fix/adjust, because provision has been kept for future adjustments arising out of usage. The oil or fluid chamber which acts as a double piston needs to be checked for any leakage and the level of liquid to be maintained in the chamber. This is also a case of trial and error till you hit the right adjustment but much easierthan the mechanical one. I hope this will help in diagnosing and fixing this minor but irritating matter............................................sodeep

Answer:

It's in the owners manual under power door. I believe you pull the fuse under the hood for 15 sec with the overide switch in the off position. ...(roesterman adds...).My power door was opening all the way then closing immediately. I used this method to reset door and it worked! This started happening after I had some body work done to vehicle..maybe they disconnected battery or something. Delay locking was locking doors before slider was closing too. This left the door unlocked. I haven't tested to see if this has been corrected by reset yet.

Power sliding door pontiac montana


Check to make sure there is no rocks and or dirt in the track path, spray WD40 or other lube on the rollers and moving parts.
Most of the time these will be the fix, however, the switch could be bad. You may wish to shop around for a more affordable repair shop! There mite be two electrical contacts on the door and pillar, will look like two metal buttons, clean all these contacts.
Good luck!

Rear power windows wont close windows and power door locks wont work?


check the wires that go into the door you can see them when you open the doors, sometimes they get old and break from opening and closing hte doors, the other solution is that the wiring coming from the main panel on the drivers door is broken because that is the door that is used the most check those first.

You would have to remove door panel and remove the two nuts fastening the window to the window motor regulator then slide window up and use tape to hold it up until you can get it repaired

My 2002 town & Country Rear sliding door wont close


You need to change the locking mechanism on the door,not the theft lock that you push down by the window,the lock that keeps thew door shut.I dont know why it wouldnt lock,it must be a factory defect,that worn out before its time..

My 1999 pontiac montana rear sliding power door will not work


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.

If this is a Factory installed System You will have to get it from the Dealer. If not, You need to find out Who the Manufacturer is of the System and Contact them for a Replacement.
