    Gate folds down and window flips up-nothing happens when I push key release-window doesnt pop open.

    Please clarify. Do you have a gate that folds down? Or a gate that swings? On Rodeo's the glass and the spare tire arm both have to be open to operate the gate. Does the window open? My first inspection if the glass opens but not the gate is something is jambed in the gate around the edge. In the past I have overcome this by using body weight and push on the gate while pulling on the handle to help the latch get out of the bind. If the handle moves fully and freely, it sounds like the mechanisim may be broken inside. Let me know more so I can help. Big Daddy

I think I would take it over to a body shop and ask for advice, body shop tech's run into all kind of problems like the one you are having with wrecks and such so they may have a solution thats not in the books.

When the gate was used manually the inside button was deactivated. Look in owners manual or contact dealer to see how to activate switch.

Rear tail gate light stays on

I hope this is an easy fix, but I doubt it!
Try to locate the switch, it should be a push button, that opens when you lift the rear gate, and closes when you close the rear gate.
If that switch is broken, it will stay on.
Also, the switch, usually made of plastic, could have fallen down inside the hole where it mounts, also causing it to stay on.
Perhaps it need adjustment to turn off the light.
If the lift gate has been sprung or is not exactly where it was when new, you might be able to adjust it somehow to work.
Like if the gate does not come close enough, you might glue or screw a piece of metal on to the contact surface to make it turn off the light.
My sad suspicion is, put a piece of tape over the light!
That is what I have had to do in a few cases.
Be blessed.

Where is the hose for the rear window washer on my 2002 Chev Blazer?

The hose runs along the frame and up through the tail gate on the two piece tail gate, on the single lift gate the hose runs from the top where the hinge's is located that hold the lift gate. Common for the host to crack there, causing it to leak before it goes out to the wipers. Good luck and hope this helps.

Rear window and gate will not open.

This is only part of a solution or suggestion. I have the same problem and the car manual says to reach under the tail gate, inside under the carpet and there is an emergency release. I can't find it. It says you need a screw driver or sharp skinny object to do this. Good luck hope you find it. Hope you have your manual.
