Open the tailgate. There should be ~2 screws on the inner edge of the light housing. Take those out. Then this may take some time to figure out but you should be able to pop out the entire light housing. Try moving it up, down, left right. Whichever works. It may take more pressure than you would think. Don't put too much pressure on it, the clips will break if your not careful. Once you get the housing out the lights may be clipped or screwed into the back of the housing. the rest should be self explanatory. Good luck.

2001 Pontiac Montana - what is a misfire #5?

Without your actual trouble code, I am assuming that you are have a misfire on cylinder # 5. The computer cannot really tell what is causing the misfire only that cyl 5 is not putting out full power. If it misfires when cold then smooths out as it warms up, I would say it is probably an injector that is sticky, as it warms up it starts working properly.

Head lamp wont work

Try replacing bulbs they could have both gone at the same time,I think it takes a 9006 bulb. You could check by pluging low beam plug into high beam bulb if it works the low beam bulbs are gone

2004 Pontiac Montana Brake Lights, Pwr Window and Cruise all Quit

The same thing happened to my 2002 Montana minus the power window problem.

The brake lights and the cruise control are somehow tied in together.

I went to the scrapyard and ripped off a couple circuit boards from an old Lumina ($25 for the set) since there were no Montanas on site.

The problem seems to be when one brakelight goes the bulk of the current transfers to the other light and will blow it too.

Anyways you said you tried replacing the circuit boards and it did not work so sorry I could not be of more help.

I have a 2001 Pontiac Montana. The driver side brake light melts

Make sure your useing the correct bulb and its pluged in the right way, if your sure of that, than check your ground a poor ground could do that, when there is a bad ground, it will travel thru the positive to find a ground maybe overloading it. There is a chanse it could be a bad break light switch. You can chk. that by applying the breaks for a little wile and let off and feel the switch and see if its excessively warm or hot.

How do I replace the headlights on a 2003 montana van?

dim headlights are almost always caused by a loose ground or corroded ground, the ground wires are near the head lights attached to the inside of the fender, check them, pull them off and clean them and the surface they attach to with sand paper.

All rear end lights; brakes, reverse, turn signals not working when activated. checked all fuses, all ok

Often times the light socket assembly will become overheated in the Montana, (& Chevrolet Venture vans) and this will cause a bad contact between the light bulb and the socket. Sometimes it will also melt the plastic of the light assembly. If this happens, replace the entire assembly.

If it is not melted, sometimes just taking a screwdriver and pushing the light assembly contacts closer together will fix it - although in my experience you usually will end up replacing the light assembly after a little while (just putting off the unavoidable).

Many salvage yards should have this part if you want to save a few bucks.
