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!

SOURCE: My 1999 pontiac montana rear sliding power door will not work

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.

SOURCE: 2006 Pontiac montana SV6 power sliding door sensor

I have a 2006 SV6 with the power sliding doors. The problem that I found was with the contacts on the door ( They are called plungers) the movable pins were losing connection with the fixed part The plunger is very easy to replace if you can find one. The plungers are covered with a rubber cover and is held in place with 2 plastic pins. My Pontiac dealer could not even find one in his books or even a picture of one, and claimed that he had never had anyone come with a door problem. My Chevy dealer said that it came with a wiring harness that is not needed for $154. The cure that I came up with was to take the plunger block apart (it snaps together)and replace the rusted out springs then solder 3" wires to the end of the plunger pins (they solder easy) to the tabs that go to the plug(pop out the tabs or you will melt the plastic. It took about 45 min. now the doors work like new and will never loose contact again

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.

Repair Van sliding door runner


If the Pontiac Trans Sport Van door is in the process of closing or opening (via motor), and the vehicle's ignition is engaged prior to the door fully closing or opening, the motor immediately stops. At this point, the only recourse is to manually close the door, as none of the power switches/handles respond again until the door has been manually closed. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 2004 Pontiac Montana and the drivers side power sliding door will not close when you press the button. It starts to close and then when it gets a couple inches from latching it just opens back up....


hi...

this is because the door has an option called as anti pich smart window mechanism.this is provided to prevent our hands from crushing when the window been closed. if you keep your hands when closing the window wil come down.there may be some obstruction which is activating this mechanism. check this.

My van did this aswell, you must have a power sliding door, when it is not latched properly this warning goes off but it won't say on your message center "door ajar". Stop and reopen the door and close it again no more bell. good luck.

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..
