    2004 Blazer 2dr,2wd, w/remote switch, with same problem with rear window not opening. Except do not hear anything from back. Checked breaker/relay underhood it's ok, do not see a fuse anywhere for the back window release. Push on remote, dash button,and button on tailgate nothing. Getting voltage back there but not sound. I saw somewhere that there is a plastic piece that breaks off. But that was on a '95 Blazer. They fixed it with 2 zip/wire ties and supposedly it works. My problem is everybody is hearing the sounds back there with nothing happening. I hear no sounds and nothing happening. Any clues what to look or do next?

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

1998 Chevy Blazer rear Tailgate door will not open electrically. Can hear solenoid trying to release the window but window remains locked. Tried to push and pull on the door to no avail. Could not locate...

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!!

HI there, the rear hatch on our 2001 chevy blazer wont open, we have tried the remote the internal release in both the console and the actual door and the release button on the outside, nothing is working....

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

Tailgate jamed shut

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.

I have a 2004 Chevy Blazer. I cannot open the rear hatch. When I press the button I hear a motor running nothing happens. Is there something that I can do in the inside of the vehicle to open it.

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

95 Chevy Blazer Gears off + back gate & window won't open

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?)

Rear hatch window will not release

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.
