Double check to make sure you didn't miss a fuse box. I've not spent to much time going over our Montana. So far I've only changes a sway bar end link, and a power steering pump. But if your getting no lights, that would suggest no power, so a blown fuse, a broken wire, or something is unplugged.

Thanks Dan. It is at the tranny shop currently. When I get it back Im going to look a little more deeper. I found the one on the passenger side and the one under the hood. Do you know of any othere locations for the fuse box?

I only know of two locations, on the passenger side, and under the hood.

on my MC it flashes a few things on startup are you even getting that?
i dont know for sure but i would guess the message display either interfaces the body control network or is fed from the BCM (body control module)

Hey Justin.....there is nothing that comes up on it. I have the compass, DTE, fuel econony on the roof and I would assume my Low Fuel light would have came on since my DTE was blinking but it didnt. I get it back from the tranny shop tomorrow so I hope to do some investigating!!

Ok guys.....IM STUMPED!!!

I have checked every fuse, every one was good. I checked both under the hood and on passenger side.

Took the dash out and put it in a frends Venture and the thing works!! Door ajar was the only thing I seen but it works!!!

Took it to the dealer for an oil change and they said the AWD was disconnected on it. They would not tell me how to re-connect it. I read in the manual that the message center would flash AWD DISABLED if there was a problem or disconnected. So I now know the previous owner had to have turned the message center off but I can not find the source.

If you have any other ideas my ears are open!!
