1996 Chevrolet Blazer - Liftglass Release Issue

I am having an issue with my Blazer that I hope you can help with.

When using the Wireless Remote Entry, it unlocks my door but also releases the Liftglass release switch. The release mechanism (the gold section pictured below) will stay in its current position but with poking and prodding, generally, it will change from the -15 degree angle (liftglass release always engaged) to a horizontal line (liftglass release works normally).

Also, while driving, I shift from Drive to Park and it also releases the liftglass release switch. I have already checked each individual fuse and none need to be replaced. However, the two main circuit breakers (which I believe are the two biggest ones at the top) are not clear and its a possibility one of these two need to be replaced but beforehand, I wanted to seek the advice of professionals. Please help!

96 chevy blazer won't start.

I'm following another issue like this on a 1996 Jimmy.
This engine requires 60psi or more fuel pressure to run.
You need to have someone check the fuel pressure at the rail- throttle body with a gauge.

check the distributor cap it may be bad. check inside of dist. for other bad parts. its a timing issue! so check the dist. etc, GOOD-DAY ! if the check engine light is on, get it scanned to see what the problem code is! check dist. first ! ( could be a bad crank sensor ) for this controls the timing.

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!!

well i had that same issue in my blazer. In the mornings i would let it warm up and sometimes it would be ok but then progressively started to get worse. It would hesitate but once i drove it... it would be fine. it turned out to be the coil and the distributor cap. I replaced both and it ran great afterwards. I even tested out the by not letting it warm all the way up in the morning and still it was fine. Hope this helps.

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
