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

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.

What could cause water to leak inside the trunk of a 1991 Chevy Camaro?

Rear hatch leaking on 3rd gen Camaro,Z28-IRoc-z/Trans Am/Firebird-GTA The seal between the window and the hatch is worn. Any glass shop will reseal do yourself buy a glass sealer or tar. remove inner hatch cover, there are I believe 4 bolts holding the window to the hatch. remove them. Have a large 4by4 holding up the hatch. Remove the hatch struts. Clean off old sealer under window an hatch. Reseal the hatch/window. Put the struts back and retighten all the bolts snug not too tight. I have had the same problem. This will fix ur water leak problem..

I don't know how to fix the main problem but if you climb in the back of the Blazer in the middle of the hatch you will see a little round plug if you pop this out use a flashlight to see inside on the right side there is a lever if you pull it toward you all the way you will hear it click then you can open your hatch and window.
