Another, simpler, fix could be, that your fuse is blown? If your dome lights or cigarette lighter don't work, it's the fuse. Your glass won't open if that fuse is blown.

    It's the fuse for the dome lights and cigarette lighter. It's in the fusebox by the drivers door.

The easy way to open the glass without tearing up the tailgate panel or ripping out your carpet:

Pull back the interior tailgate panel right above the bump in the middle where the latch is. There are no screws or boltson my 1997 Blazer the rear hatch class wont open b - icon1.png in that area, so it should pull away about 2 inches. Then you'll have to reach in and push down the release bar. You should be able to feel for the part that needs to be pushed down to release the glass. Now that it is unlocked, you will be able to open the hatch and the tailgate. Once open, remove the interior tailgate panel, which has one screw on each side.

The failed actuator that needs to be replaced is not all that expensive and can be found at the dealer.

Since this is the rear of your car, there is a great deal of dirt, dust, and rain/moisture swirl in this area. Try this before you start taking anything apart, it has been successful for me. Spray a liberal amount of WD-40 or PB BLASTER, or any other type of penetrating oil directly into the lock cylinder, and let the penetrating oil soak in for a while. You may need to do this procedure a few times. Put your key into cylinder and gently try to turn the key, both ways. Be careful not to break the key, that's why I say gently turn the key. Keep working at the lock cylinder, I think you will see results fairly quick. This procedure will work on other lock cylinders also. Please let me know how you make out. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Instead of "class" I assume you mean "glass"; I also assume by your "rear hatch" you mean "rear endgate"; and I also assume the window in your endgate opens separately from opening the entire endgate.

If so, the problem is most likely a stuck or failed endgate window release actuator, or failed or corroded switch (which operates this actuator) on the inside end of the endgate lock cylinder. Over time, dirt and corrosion often cause one or both these parts to fail. You can access these by removing the endgate inside panel. It is a bit crowded inside the endgate, so you will probably have to remove the actuator and lock cylinder to check these.

The rear hatch on my 2006 buick rendevous wont open with the button on the door but it will open with the remote button on the key fob


Visit an on-line parts supplier and purchase a new switch/touchpad for inside of the rear handle. Local parts supplier probably won't have it. You can replace it yourself. I did when I owned one of these part pits.

Where is the fuse for the rear hatch on a 1993 chevrolet blazer? My rear hatch will not open at all. I can hear it ttrying to unlatch the rear windoiw but nothing happens.


If you can hear it then you don't have a fuze problem. More than likely it can be fixed by adjusting the catch in the tailgate. Open you hatch with the key and lower the tailgate. Remove the tailgate interior panel/cover and you'll see the catch for the window. Adjust the catch a little, tighten it up, raise the tailgate and close the hatch. Try your release on the dash again and see if this fixes the problem. You may have to repeat this a couple of times until you get it adjusted to where it needs to be. If this works, then reinstall the tailgate interior panel and you're all done.

I too had an issue with my rear hatch. My father in law cut a huge hole in the plastic only to find out there is a manual operation hole behind one of the carpeted panels in the hatch. You simply move the latch with pliers.

i had the same problem and it's almost impossible to open it with out being able to "open it" I had to bend out the back material on the hatch reach my hands in and dig around with my fingers untill i found the 'trigger" to open the hatch it took a long long time, I then could open the hatch and the bottom as well and ther on the side of the hatch it the screws to get to the "trigger" to open the hatch?????? I then put together the broken parts and now it work (with the help of some wire). It hurt my hand but didn't cost me anything to fix but my time and some wire, not sure if yours is the same problem but if you can hear the mechanics work when you push the hatch to open try it

Where to locate rear hatch button


your turn handle is probably broken off..it looks like a boat tie down kinda..so dont just use your key ,make a tool like a o-ring remover with 3 or 4 prongs and turn it with the key..then pull on the tag..so your key wont break..like mines did..
