Its the spring behind the button it wares out and shortens, take off the interior behind it take off the large metal plate with bolts all around it a couple small bars need to be pulled from postion to remove it once unbolted then take off the actual locking device for the window usually 3 bolts and theres a round plastic piece that the button is inside of pop it out and remove the rubber seal from theat pop the button off then youll see the copper spring and the spring that pushes it back the copper one completes the circuit and needs to be replaced

Had the same problem and I did manage to get the inside panel off, which you have to with force, and found that the lock/latch had broken. I could get it to release, silver metal latch, when using my finger. You will have to take it to someone to replace this unless you can do it yourself. I did not have mine replaced due to auto accident which totalled my dear blazer so I can not give you any further details. Hope this helps you!!
Eddie, are both the rear door and glass not opening? I had a personal issue with my 05 Envoy where both would not open, I had to pull the peek hole right above the latch on the inside, work with a screwdriver to release the door and get it open then, spray the linkages with a good penetrating lube while trying to free the linkages parts. You'll see what I mean
owners manual page 2-9 peel back or **** the carpet locally to expose the access hole in trim panel on endgate use a thin screwdriver to reach through the access holes in both th trim panel and the hardware cover. pry the release lever toward the passenger side until the glass latch pops open.
under the carpet installed on the tailgate door, there is a hole. put a screw driver in it and manually flip the latch open, to start.
yjen take the door panel off, one screw with the interiro handle, and pull the rest off,
watch the auto release slidw side to side, you will find a broken piece here, I made an extension piece with a plastic hook and screw, works fine for over a year, lube all latch parts with wd 30 once opened.
Hi: the hatch release is not a motor it is a solenoid, you should hear just a click. If wipers and door locks not working check under the hood in the power distribution box for the 3 Amp fuse and replace. To manually open the hatch get in the back of the unit, in the center of the door below the window where the carpet starts below the plastic run your finger across the carpet, you will find an indentation where you insert a pointed object through the carpet. This allows you to release the latch for the window or hatch. Please rate suggestion....JD
Those are two different issues.
1. your gear selector (PRNDL) not showing exactly what gear you are in is not that big of a deal unless you are not able to figure out the gears (sounds like you got it, and YES IT IS SAFE TO DRIVE).
2. if the fuse is ok you might have to take some where ot diagnose why not working. just because they tell you what will fix your issue does not mean you have to let them! (fuse relay wiring or latch not exactly sure what is going on?)
This is a common problem on the blazer. If you can hear the rod actuator working, then the actuator rod to latch rod connector has broken. It's plastic, and a poor GM design. To get the rear hatch open you will need to manualy release it. It can be done by working as much of the plastic tailgate trim you can get loose, from around the top center of the gate, where the latch is. remove the 2 screws that hold the handle on and remove handle. Then pry as much as you need to access the c type latch, and release it by moving it... it's spring loaded and will only move one way. Haveing someone help you lift the hatch while you unlatch it from inside the vehicle helps. After you get the hatch up and the tailgate folded down, make sure the latch is locked in the open position. The actuator can be repaired, i've done it several times. GM will try and sell you a new one, which is rather costly compared to the $8.00 piece of plastic you need. Good luck and i hope this helps.
