#148 of 202 2006 Montana Power windows, locks and back sensor stopped working
Nov 08, 2010 (8:44 am)
We are having some trouble with our 2006 Pontiac SV6. Suddenly all the power windows, power locks, and the rear backup sensor have stopped working. When we press the window up/down button we hear a clicking from the driver side dash. All other things seem to be working fine (radio,cd,dvd, dash lights, etc). Can someone please tell us what it could be? and How do we fix it? It sure would be good if we could get a Haynes manual for this model!
thank you so much!

I also just noticed that the rear window wiper is not working. We checked all fuses -- all seem to be fine.
#150 of 202 Dash board warnings
Nov 09, 2010 (5:44 am)
I have a pontiac montana 6v6 2008. Several times the warning lights comes on:
stability control, abs system, tire inflation. Master mechanic checked and said they moved the harness slightly and secured it. However after the 2nd day of driving on a bad road with lots of bumps; the warning lights came on again intermittenly.
Will changing the complete harness solve the problems?
Looking for solutions.

Might be the problem descibed many times before on this Forum.......bad rear tail light Pig-Tails (where tail lites plug into the wiring harness). The plug hot wire is shorting out with the other colored wires due to GM using inferior plastic plug that can't take the heat....melts! Part was built by an outside supplier. GM continues to deny this. Replace the Pig-tails...GM has the parts...about $45 per PIg-tail.

Imagine that, fix one issue & another starts.
Now the air compressor won't shut off.
Any advice, I'm going to check connection under rear tire well to see if any wires are bad.
Thanks again to Jack & all posters, for all your help.

Is it the Auxilary Air Compresor (used to fill tires, tubes and kids pool stuff) (if you have that option) or the Shock Absorber Load Leveling Air Compressor that is running?
If it's the Shock Absorber Load Leveling Compressor, it could be:
1. rear leveling sensor is bad, causing the compressor to pump more air to try to fill the leveling shocks. or...
2. one of the 1/4 inch diameter air tubes from the compressor to the shocks is disconnected, broken or cracked...leaking air.

Turn the key on,and push the accelerator pedal three times slowly,within 5 seconds,this will reset the oil change light.And napa auto parts has the fuel pump ass,includes sending unit,for 242.00 dollars,and surely some one can do the job for 65.00 dollars or so.

I had the same problem on my montana. there is a wiring harness on the passenger side front floorboard under the carpet where th e floor board curves down from the firewall to the floor pan they made a 2 piece wiring harness and patched them together . They seem to corrode at these patch points causing a number of electrical issues. I just trimmed the bad part of the wires off and used crimp heat shrink patch connectors from walmart and electrical heat shrink tubing to fix. Plus rear tailight socket issues cause a wide variety of electrical issues too. I hope this helps before you spend alot of money on switches. I have baught alot of parts on ebay that are greatly discounted without fail. Just do not but from people or dealers from outside the us.
#156 of 202 Montana Brake Lights

I have a 2000 Pontiac Montana van and the last couple of months I have had nothing but problems with my brake lights. i have replaced the bulbs so many times and getting sick and tired of it. The lights will usually work for a day or two once new ones are in and then they blow or just don't work. There is never a problem with the brake light in the center above the back door though.

This is a common problem with this vehicle....see many, many, previous posts about this. It's the bulb socket...the black wire is shorting out with the colored wires due to a substandard plug material that cannot take the heat....it melts.
Replace the plug (pig-tail) with a new kit...about $40 plus your labor...use crimp connectors.
