Take a pair of pliers and pull on the cable if u can get to it..Or..once u get it opened.. Take the latch off from under the hood... put in hood pins... they are easier to access... and they look cool too!

Can't open the hood by pulling hood release


Cable is stretched/sprung. Access hood release panel and pull cable with channel locks.. or worse, something is stuck in the latch mechanism under hood.
See repair rep at Ford in any case.

How to adjust hood cable for 1999 ford ranger?


The hood cable is not adjustable, you must have a defective cable or the latch is sticking under the hood.

The hood on my 1993 bruick wont open


most likely a stretched cable or frozen latch assembly. The handle for your hood release has a cable behind it. Pull the cable off of the handle and use pliers to pull on it. If the hood opens, you need a new cable. If it doesnt, u need a new latch.

My hood release cable has been pulled but doesnt release the hood latch. How do I get the hood open?


Tap on the hood while somebody else pulls the leaver, try pulling up on it to. If this does not work you will have to try to gain access to the hood latch and pull the leaver where the cable is attached to open the hood. The cable may be stretched or broke.

The hood release cable is stretched out on my jeep cherokee sport, I can not open the hood. Is there another way to open it ?


If it's actually just stretched out you should be able to grab the cable behind the pull release, and using pliers, pull it far enough to release the latch.

1998 gmc k2500 5.7l hood release cable stretched. Cannot open hood


You can temporarily fix this if this solution will work:
disassemble the hood release in the cabin and pull the cable until the hood latch opens. Then you can remove or adjust the cable as necessary.

How do you get the hood open if the hood latch wont open


You will need to reach under the top of your hood to see if you can locate the release cable. There should be one on either side of the hood. If you can reach the cable and manage to get one side or the other released, a repetitive bouncing up & down motion on the hood should cause the other side to release.

Alternatively, if you find that the cable has broken inside under the dash, you cat tru to expose the end of the inner cable in order to be able to grasp onto the cable with a pair of vice grips or other form of plyers. Pulling on the inner cable should release the hood latches.

Very close quarters, and tight tolerances.

Opening hood on 1992 Ford Explorer


I had the same problem with my hood. I had that handy wire hanging out of the front but it didn't want to release the hood. The cable was jammed and the hood had to be manually released via ratchet. After you can get the hood open maneuver the cable under the plastic piece where the hood meets the grill to stop this from happening again.
