Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

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. What could be causing this?

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.

Why are side sliding doors difficult to open and close without using the button?


The door tracks are greased at the factory . By now, the grease in the tracks of your 2005 Montana has disappeared or become contaminated. Also, the rollers have become contaminated with dirt. Cleaning and regreasing of both tracks and rollers should result in a marked improvement.

Can't find switch for rear windows on 2004 pontiac montana


Owner's Manual page 2-26 : http://www.vadengmpp.com/owners-manual/pontiac/2004-Pontiac-Montana.pdf

This switch, located in the overhead console switchbank, is used for opening and closing the power rear quarter windows. Press the textured part of the switch to open the windows; both windows will open. The windows will continue to open as long as the switch is pressed, until they are fully opened. Press the part of the switch with the symbol to close both windows. The windows can be closed fully or partially, depending on how long the switch is pressed.

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.

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.

2005 Pontiac SV6 Montana key fob unlocks doors but will not lock


For the sliding doors you need to clean the contacts, there are 6 or 8 on both sides, just wipe them clean as they are probably covered in oil/grease/grime.

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.
