It is the actuator, look this up on Blazer forum, someone will tell you step by step how to fix it!! You will have to loosen the inner panel and get your hand in there and find the proper linkage to pull on.

How do you open the rear window and tailgate from the inside of a 1984 Chevy blazer?

These models came stock with a release button below the cigarette lighter. If you look directly to the right of the radio there should be a button to push that will release the glass and then once its open, your tailgate should open once you do it manually. Hope this helps you
