On my 1997 Blazer the rear hatch class wont open by key or botton so what could i do to fix it

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 boltsicon1.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.

I have a 1998 blazer. The back hatch window lock keeps acting as if wants to open. There is a noise the whole time you drive unless you hit the button on the dash to open the window.

that is the sound of the metal hatch on the window rattling against the locking mechanism. you especially hear it when you are driving on a bumpy/rocky road. you can wrap the metal latch on the window with some electrical tape. It quiets down the noise. if you can get a hold of some liquid rubber that will work and stay better...

97 chevy blazer hatch problems

the lock is probably gummed up. you may have to have someone push lightly on the glass while pushing the latch switch to make it move. if not then you can remove the back panel and actuate the latch manually by pulling on the cable. then clean it with brake cleaner and lubricate with graphite.

The liftgate on my 2003 chevy blazer will not open when i press the rear hatch button on the dash or when i use the key fob. i tried to open it manually through the access hole in the trim panel of the...

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

Back hatch won't unlock or open even with the key

This is a 2 part question so ill answer it that way

1. with the hatch, there are 2 things you can try. First look in the glove box and see if there is a button or switch that says "valet". Some models have this so when you valet park your car, they cant get in with the key. If you dont have that, try to push in on the hatch door while turning the key. There may be something in the latch the last time it was closed like a peice of cloth etc that has the lock bound.

2. When your car is running is your generator light on? After a car is started, the alternator takes over running all your electrical needs. The battery just starts the engine and runs things when the engine is not on. To me, this part sounds more like a fuel injection problem. Lucas oil products makes a good fuel injection cleaner

My back hatch won't open, but my door locks still work also my lighter quit working. Any suggestions or solutions?

Have you taken the little red nozzle that comes with WD-40 and stuck it as far in the key slots as far as you can & soak it good? Spray all around buttons too, trying to get it to work in behind it.
