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

What is causing the locks and rear windowhatch in your 1998 Chevy blazer to lock and unlock themselves when the car in running as well as when it is off?

If the locks and rear window hatch on a 1998 Chevy Blazer lock and unlock by themselves, there is probably a problem with the fuse or a short somewhere. The locks are supposed to lock when the vehicle gets put in gear. Perhaps the system that tells the locks when to lock is not working properly.
