Latch should be inside the car the towards the floor towards the left and if it still wont open when you pull the latch give the hood a couple taps and use lube on the hinge

Safety catch on hood wont release and hood wont re latch!


I would check to see if the hood release moves when the inside lever is pulled then pushed, if not the cable and latch mechanism may need lubrication or be broken.

I need to open the hood but the battery is dead the hood rerlease latch doesn't work bease there is o power.


The hood release latch is not run by the battery. there will be a hood release at bottom left of steering wheel. may be two levers. one will be for the hood and the other may be for the fuel door. Your hood is definitely is not open with power. e7b4ea09-a41c-4b55-b94c-260b24f79b4e.png

Battery dead, doors won't open


Two ways to do this. You can try to jump a good battery to your car so it would have voltage to unlock, connect the ground to any good frame contact or engine block, and the other hot end to the hot wire on the starter, this may involve crawling under the car. Another way is to gain access to the hood latch and try to manually get the latch to open, you might have to remove the grill. If you can't get the latch to unlock this way, you could just remove the bolts holding the latch on to the car, and lift hood latch and all. (watch out for your latch cable, as it would probably still be connected and hood won't raise much, but just enough to unlatch the latch.

01 chrysler sebring convertible dead battery car wont unlock with key


try to reach up under the front of the car with your arm and try to locate the latch with the hood release cable attached to it. Use your fingers or plyers to manipulate the latch to release-pull on the cable. You may have to remove the grill to access it.

Nissan quest dead battery - keys locked in van - get hood open


you need too get some sort of hook on the end of a handle, something smaller but still strong enough to pull against with out bending or breaking. then standing at the front of the van using a flashlight look through the grill until you find the hood latch, then locate the black cable running into the side of the latch hook on to it and pull as hard as you can while simultaneously bouncing pressure on the font center area of the hood with your other hand until you hear/feel the hood latch release or "pop"!

Hood latch cable is broken


Slide under the front of the car with the flashlight and pliers. Shine the light up towards the location of the hood latch and locate the latch release cable, Reach in with the pliers and grab the cable as close to the latch as possible. Once you have a firm grip on the cable, pull on it in the direction it naturally moves (i.e., towards the fender or down, depending on its routing). If the latch does not release, have a helper thump on the hood above the latch with his fist a few times until the latch releases and the hood opens. good-day !

2002 Lexus LS430.Original battery is totally dead.how do you unlock hood latch with no power. Everything is shutdown.i want to replace battery.


If you're able to get into the car, pulling the hood latch lever the hood should open the hood...it doesn't use any power to open, it's all cable. If it still doesn't open...you might have a stuck latch lock. Have someone try to lift the hood while pulling the lever see if that works. If it doesn't work, your hood latch is stuck, but it doesn't require power to open. Hope this helps you open it.

Any way to get in an escalade with a dead batery


You will have to get into the hood manually to jump the battery and the use the key less entry. Use a long flathead screwdriver and pop the hood latch. To do this simply push the latch horizontally with the screwdriver and the hood will pop open. Jump the battery and you will be able to get into your vehicle. I would then address the reason your battery dies if not replace it.
