Get a 12v tester you can test the motor and switch with it it will light up when you get a pos led and it's easy to use you might want to check the fuse box and make sure it's not a blown fuse first but the common thing is the motor they don't make them like they use to

It may be the motor, some times if you have the door open with the key on and hit with your fist the lower towards the front of the inside of the door panel it will jar the motor enough to allow it to go up. (hold the swith in the up position while you do this)

I had a 99 with the same problem, and suggest you check under the passenger side front carpet. Remove the flat door kick plate, lift up the carpet on the front passenger side floor and you will see a large wiring harness running along the floor, wrapped in black tape. Water and salt gets into this harness and will rot out several wire splices that you will see. Look for wires that run from 2 wires down into one (under black tape.) These are spliced together, and rot out. There was several large gauge wires/splices(windows up and down) and I think 2 very thin wires/splices (lock/unlock) . Even if the wires look connected, give them a good tug, they will come apart and be green with corrosion. This is a very common problem and worth the effort to check out. Repairing these splices fixed both the power windows and locks at the same time. Good luck

I beleive you need to change the Power Window Switches Module in the drivers side door panel, as these connections are interlinked within this module and it is usually the first part that fails. Especially that you already changed the switches & motor in the passenger door and it still does not work. Once you remove the dual switch module in the driver's side door, you will understand what I mean. Plus it is really easy to access. Good luck! I have the same model, Claude

Montana 2002 driver window stuck


window stuck, this may be due to a bad window motor or window regulator, see if you can move the window by hand, does it go up or down? if it does not then you will still need to remove door panel and look at regulator to see if cables are jammed up, if they are then replace the regulator and motor as one, if cables are good and nothing is broken then test motor for power and ground while operating the switch, this will tell you if it is the switch or motor,

My back window wont roll up at all


if there is a pause from when the motor starts to when the window moves it is a worn or faulty window regulator, the motor not starting when you press the up on the switch could be a bad switch, if you have a meter check for voltage at the switch when you press up.

2001 montana passenger window wont go up cam i apply power to wire to at least get the window to go back up


You can certainly try.

With the switch unplugged on the passenger front door you can use a jumper wire from the yellow wire (power supply to the switch) and the dark blue wire. Then ground the brown wire. The window should go up. If it doesn't check power on the yellow wire. If there is no power try running a wire directly from the battery.

If it still doesn't go up the window motor may be bad. You can try tapping it with a screw driver and see if it goes up.

It is also possible that the window regulator is broken. If that the case than there is nothing you can do besides mechanically remove the window from the regulator and tape the window in the closed position until the regulator can be replaced.

Drivers window in pontiac montana 2002 went down and will not come back up. how do i test to see if the switch is working. The right window is functioning very well.


Most likely the window motor/regulator assembly has gone bad.Check for good fuse, if good pull out the switch and make sure you have power to it, if you do then remove door panel and test for power at motor, if u have power but motor won't work replace. Suggest replacing the regulator assembly as well because the cables often fray and cause problems as well.
