Most of these cable that break usually break at the connector under the dash. If this is the case you can still open the hood just find where the cable connects and pull this it should open the hood.

SOURCE: inside latch broke off 2002 dodge ram 2500 pu.how to open hood?

im taking a guess that the inside latch your refering to is the latch inside the cab of the truck, if so inspect the cable, can you see the metal cable inside the black housing, if you do take a vice grips and grab onto tightly and pull, this should release the mechinism same as if you pulled the latch, otherwise if you can see the cable within, crawl under the front of the truck, between the radiator and grill, reach up to the latch and disconect the cable that comes from the cab, it will be the only cable coming to the latch assembly, as you remove it, it kind of just clips in place, you will see what it pulls to release the latch, grab a screw drived and lightly force the piece over to pop the hood, i know it can be frustrating from experience, took me a while the first time, and they sure dont give you much room to work with, but a little patience will pay off with this , wish you the best of luck!

SOURCE: My 1991 dodge stealth rt

If the Cable its self has Snapped then You will have to go at it from Under the Front Bumper, Cut the Cable sheath, & Grab the cable with a Small Visegrip. Then get a replacement hood release assembly...----------
Use a large flat bladed screwdriver and wedge it behind the black cone (which isjust behind the secondary latch) on the left side and push it left to right. The hood latch will spring open. --------- Usually you can reach the cable end of the latch ,under the hood's bottom side,at the center.Use a length of heavy coathanger wire about a foot long and form a hook on one end and a hand hold on the other Now if you can hook into the lever and pull it in the direction that the cable does,you may open the latch.This is if you see well enough and can get to the latch or the wire hooked into the end of the latch.You may have to experiment a bit with the hooks size to use it effectively.Have a friend hold down on the hood, to help the latch move easier.Tell him when to let the hood up once you move the latch.-------- this will help.thanks.Helpmech.

Hood wont open 2005 cavalier


Is the cable broke? If not, try having someone push up and down on the hood (Gently) while you pull the hood release. If it does open, get out the WD-40 and lube the latch and cable.
If not or the cable is broken, you might try "fishing" a coat hangar wire with a loop in one end between the grill and radiator to hook the hood release latch where the cable attaches. Pull the wire and it MAY open. Good Luck... ....

My 93 caravan the hood latch won't catch to keep the hood closed


Your hood latch probably isn't returning to the right position for it to catch. This is commonly caused by one of two problems: (1) too much hardened grease and crud on the latch itself is keeping it from operating freely; or (2) the hood release cable has gotten rusty or kinked over time and is no longer releasing completely.
I would suggest testing the hood release cable before doing anything else. It's an easy test and it only takes a minute. Enlist the help of a second person to pull the hood release lever while you look at the hood latch. When your helper pull on the release, you should see the cable pull part of the hood latch. When they let go, that part should swing back to its prior position. Using a long-shafted screwdriver, see whether you can "help" that moving part move any further on its return path. If you can push the latch any significant amount, it's not returning all the way to its proper position, and your hood release cable is probably binding.
In the short term, if you manually push the hood latch back into position, you should be able to close your hood again. However, you'll have to do this each time you open the hood. In addition, you run the risk that, not too far in the future, your hood release cable will actually completely bind or snap, and then you'll have a much harder time opening your hood to replace the cable (or do anything else, like add oil or washer fluid).
