Question about 2004 Pontiac Montana

6 Answers

Passanger power window will go down but not up..and its cold out.

Notice the passanger window was open a little so went to close it nothing then hit the window to go down and that worked but could not use the button to put it back up. So now its sits 1/2 open. I would think the motor is not gone if the window goes down but not up and to scarred to try the driver side in case it won't go up.

Any ideas what might be wrong?

    It is the window regulator ...changing it is the only way to correct it.

It's probably NOT the regulator, but the switch. You can find out for sure by unplugging the switch and providing power to the plug to see if you can operate the window properly. If it works both ways when you do that, you've got a bad switch. If you don't know how to remove the switch or how to apply current to the proper wires, don't try this procedure. You could hurt yourself or do further damage. Take it to a repair shop instead (where it will probably cost you about $150 or so to fix it).

Solution #1 combined with #3 did it for me ! However, beware of something : You need to remove the switch in order to make the jumper connection. A simple way is to use plastic-coated paper-clips... Now I am sure that I need to replace the switch. I found the best deal at "switchdoctor.net" ... Thank You Kenny !

I had the same problem with my 2004 Montana. First the passenger side window was intermittently working, then it just stopped working completely. It won't roll down. The problem then spread to the driver's side window (intermittently working) and then it stopped working completely. The driver's side won't roll up at all.
Just today, I went to an auto parts store and purchased a power window switch for the driver's side. Cost me approximately $60.00. It is easy to install and replace the switch. All you need is a small flathead screwdriver to remove the bezel that holds the switches from the door panel. Both of my windows are working perfectly fine now.

Passanger side window won't go down all the way


There may be a child safety device on the latch side of the door you can see when door is opened, which prevents the window from going all the way down. Open the door, and check somewhere near the part that holds the door closed. See if there is a slide lever or button you have to operate to get the window to go all the way down. This is common on many vechicles.

I have a ford windstar 2003, the power windows some times work. When a try open the driver's window there is a rely sound baut nothing happen. If i try to open the passanger or rear windows only...


I'd take the inner door panel off, and disconnect the two heavy wires that feed the window motor. Put a digital multi-meter positive lead on one wire, and the negative on the other wire, and press the button to put the window down (you'll have to have the main switch control plugged in to test this). You should see your meter read +12v or so when you push the button one way, and -12V when you push the button the other way. If you are getting power (consistently) then your motor may be bad, or the window regulator needs greased.

The little metal contacts inside the switch havecorroded. I have torn apart the switches and sanded the contacts severaltimes and they always worked afterward. Just be careful and watch what you are doing. They are a little tricky but if you mess up then the switch at the wrecking yard will cost you all of 5.00 or ten bucks. Do not buy it new. You will loose an arm. I have never messed up though. Ilike saving my money to much. Good Luck, I hope this helped, The Raz

03 Chevy Venture....Clarification Passenger Window stuck down.


It will be in the switch lift up the controls on both the drivers side and passenger side the wires going into the connection wiggle then and the button at the same time if you get any movement then you have a broken wire if not use a test light hook one wire to some metal and the other to the wires if their is any power the light will come on, if no light then you probably have a broken wire. The passenger side power comes from the drivers side control. When you open the doors you will see a large black set of wiring harness in the door going into the side under the dash that is the wiring harness for all the power windows and door locks, open it and test those wires for power.

INTERIOR LIGHTS ON.


you should see a little "button" on the door jam, hinge side, held in with a cross head screw. if you take the screw out and feed the switch out by pulling gently and turning the switch assembly a little it will have a single wire on it. this could be touching the door jamb and making the circuit. insulate with some tape and replace as it came out.
