Why would the back window on a 1996 Chevy Blazer not open when you push the button to open the hatch?

The blazer must be in park for the rear hatch button to work. If you have the blazer in drive the button will not open the hatch unless it is in park!!! If there is still a problem maybe try checking the fuses! The actuator could be broken in the rear that releases the window so you can open the back. This happened to my 2003 Blazer and my neighbor's 2002 Blazer. By removing the back panel (high likelyhood the panel will break when you remove it) and replacing the actuator that could solve your problem. Both I and my neighbor would have had to order the whole actuator in order to replace the tiny plastic piece that broke. Instead we drilled a whole and rigged it with some tough wire. Works now but we both have broken back panels...even the dealership broke one. Good luck. SEE RELATED LINK for 1997 Blazer

The "wing" that is over the rear hatch is to help keep the rear window clean.
