SOURCE: Hood Latch Wire ???
I had the same problem on mine. You can get to the latch from underneath right behind the bumper. You will need a long screw driver or pry bar to push the tab that the cable connects to. On mine I had to have someone push down on the hood slightly while I pushed the tab.

Hope this is not too late. I just worked on this exact car and problem. If the cable is broken upstream from the in car release handle here is my solution: The Stratus has four grill panels. Remove the screws from the upper two panels. The panels have a plastic rivet at the very top which can't be removed unless the hood is open so bend the panels up to gain access. With a flash light look through the grill openings and find the latch. The latch has three 12mm bolts holding it in. The two outside bolts are easily removed through the grill openings. The third bolt is tricky because it is lower and dead center to the grill. It is not in alignment with the openings. It is hard to even see it but with a long extension, universal joint and 12mm socket, it is possible to get to it and remove it. I got to it through the passenger side grill opening. With all the bolts removed, the hood opened with the unbolted latch still attached to it.

You should have a shrader valve that you can hook up a gauge to. If you dont then even if you have pressure by opening a line you wont know if its enough. . Also if you find the shrader, should have a cap on it, cycle the key and then push the shrader in. If no squirt then the pump isnt working. It may be a bad pump or it may have lost its power source. Could be a fuse or broken wire somewhere

I would have a friend help and one of you pull the hood latch and the other tap on the hood with the palm of your hand you might have to do this more than once but usually works once open oil the hood release with something like wd-40 or pb blaster.
