SOURCE: 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.

The actuator is not engaging the lock mechanism.You need to open it manually from inside the truck There is an access hole on the rear end gate pad where the material meets the plastic directly in the center you can feel a soft spot in the fabric backing with your finger.use an awl or ice pick to poke thru the hole and feel for the lock arm and pop it open then unscrew the end gate pad and inspect lock Good luck

SOURCE: on my 1996 chevy blazer the hatch won't unlock

It should be number 2 in the fuse box but if you can still hear the motor when you push the button than you need to try and pull the top where the lock that holds the glass hatch pull the plastic far enough to get you hand in on the right side of the latch and you will find a lever that you should be able to push to your left I believe and that will release the glass hatch and than open the tail gate take off the plastic inside cover and unscrew the metal plate off of the inside of the tail gate and you will be looking for a blue plastic piece that supposed to be connected to the release motor and the latch if thats broken than you need to go to the auto wreckers find a blazer or jimmy from '95-'97 maybe all the way up to 2000 I believe and basicly do the same remove the blue clip from that one put it on yours and it should work and if the clip on your is broken dont try to glue it, it wont work I tryed everything to try and fix it on mine but you have to get another one once you find another clip it doesnt really take long but yea anyways I hope that helps you out let me know heres my email [email protected]

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!!

Rear window will not open or release , can hear electric release


you will need to check all the fuses first, then remove the pop window switch and check for power at switch, and power going through switch when button is pushed, this button is on the dash, if there power then you may have a bad release motor,if your blazer does'nt have a hatch release on the dash then you will have to remove the panel on rear door and test there .
