Open the rear hatch. Pull off the inner trim panel. Look to see if there is a little box with a bunch of wires connected to it. It may be at the lower edge, driver side. Turn the key on. Test for 12 volts at the solid BLUE wire (there is only 1 solid blue wire) that is connected to the box. Is there power? If not, check the 30 amp POWER fuse. If there IS power, this box may be bad. This is the power window relay for the rear hatch. The wiper/washer and the rear window motor power all come out of this box.
BUT:
Check for power & get back to me before you buy a relay box, there are a few other tests I could share with you before we pronounce the relay box bad...

  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Make sure the cutting blades are changed where the cutting depth changes to avoid damage to the body and trim panels.
    NOTE: Some resistance may be encountered when cutting through the glass locating pegs in the lower corners of the glass.
    NOTE: Lubricate the existing urethane adhesive with water to aid the special tool while cutting.
    Using the special tool, place the flat side of the knife against the quarter glass window. Start at the top and work towards the corners cutting to the given maximum depths:

All vehicles
  1. Remove the rear quarter window glass.
  1. Using a soft brush or vacuum, remove any dirt or foreign material from the pinch weld.
Installation
ani_caut.gif CAUTION: When installing urethane installed glass parts, the vehicle must not be driven until the urethane adhesive has cured. At temperatures above 21°C (70°F) and relative humidities above 50%, adequate cure time is typically 24 hours. (Refer to Essex drive away chart for the cure times as temperatures and humidity vary.) Inadequate or incorrect curing can adversely affect the retention of the quarter window glass.
  1. NOTE: Avoid scratching the pinch weld.
    Trim the remaining urethane adhesive. The urethane adhesive must be smooth and free of cuts and contamination after trimming. Avoid touching the urethane adhesive after preparation.
    a0005586.gif
  1. Apply the urethane metal primer to any exposed or damaged metal on the pinch weld.
  1. If reinstalling the original rear quarter window glass, remove the excess urethane adhesive.
  1. Clean the rear quarter window glass with a non-alcohol based window cleaner.
  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Wipe off the urethane glass prep immediately after each application because it flash dries.
    If installing a new rear quarter window glass, apply urethane glass prep twice around the glass surface to be urethaned.
  1. If installing a new rear quarter window glass, apply urethane glass primer to the same area that was prepped in the previous step. Allow 5 minutes to dry.
  1. Cut the urethane adhesive applicator tip to specification.
    a0016835.gif
  1. Apply a bead of urethane adhesive on top of the existing urethane bead on the pinch weld. Make sure that all gaps in the urethane adhesive are smoothed into one continuous bead.
  1. Position the rear quarter window glass to the flange, and press the retaining tabs into the flange to engage.
    an0459b.gif
  1. Install the rear quarter window glass.
  1. Check the rear quarter window glass installation for air or water leaks through the urethane seal.
  1. Install the C-pillar trim panels. For additional information, refer to Section 501-05.

SOURCE: no power to the passenger rear window

I assume you've tried with the driver's door switch and the rear passenger switch and nothing happens. If so, then it's unlikely that both switches went bad and it points to a bad motor...
You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can test the switches at this point to see if they work. If not, you can then pull off the weather seal and access the regulator, motor inside the door that will be held in by several bolts

2001 Pontiac Montana rear power windows opened and now they are both not closeing. There is no fuse and I can't close my windows. Please help me.


Power for the rear quarter windows passes through the 10A PWR QTR VENT fuse in the fuse block. 12V is applied to the rearquarter window switch which controls the open and close operation of the windows. If the fuse checks OK, the window actuators and motors are all that's left

Rear side windows


This may be just a case of inadvertently hitting the window lock out n th driver door window switch by mistake. Check that first. Here's some background on window operation

Principles of Operation
The driver power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the master window/door lock/unlock switch (and its integrated "auto down" module). Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The driver power window regulator motor is a reversible motor that is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The passenger power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the passenger power window switch and can also be controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The passenger power window regulator motor is a reversible motor, which is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The power rear quarter glass is also directly controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. The power rear quarter glass power latches also utilize reversible motors. The power rear quarter glass power latches are operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to open the window, and then reversing polarity on those same leads to close the window.
