Hood cable problem

I went to the junkyard and pulled one and heres the trick. start under the dash inside and pull the rubber grommet at the firewall. then lok under the brake fluid resovoir and find the cable, you will have to feed the cable from outside the car and it goes along the frame under the battery out thru a hole right near the left headlight then makes a turn towards the latch. all this is held with metal clips along the way. It took me 20 minutes to pull it and 10 minutes to install on my car . If you need any more help my email is

SOURCE: My hood won't pop open

Push down on the hood where the latch is, the design is bad, very.  If you push on it a few times that will excersice the bad design, and make the hood easier to open.

SOURCE: 2000 olds intrigue. I had battery light come on,

I think the diode block in the alternator is on it's way out. The output voltage from the alternator should be approximately 14 volts. When the alternator output is lower than the battery output, the car runs on the battery until it is depleted. That is why the car stops.

Very basically, it means that either the alternator output voltage is lower than the battery voltage, or the battery voltage is lower than the alternator output voltage. If the light gets dimmer as you rev up the engine, then you most likely have a problem with the alternator. If it gets brighter, then the battery is most likely bad. google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);

How do you run a wire through a 2005 Mazda 6 , with standard transmission, through the firewall?

There are plenty rubber grommets in the bulkhead, some are easier to get to from the inside by pulling down the carpet from under the dash. Either make another hole, of try to squeeze the wire inside the existing hole.

Speedo cable needs replacing 1989 nissan datsun ute

Reach under the dash and undo the cable from the speedometer unit, then go under the dash and find the rubber grommet where the cable comes through the firewall, push the out and then thread the cable through the hose, unclip the cable from any brackets it goes through and follow it to the transmission case under the car, then reverse to install.

Is there a jump start connection under the hood?

Yes. On the passenger side of the engine bay there is a black rubber grommet in front of the flat panel attached to the fire wall (directly behind the shock tower) that can easily be accessed. Pull the rubber grommet back and that will be your "positive" terminal. Use the shock tower bolt area for the "ground" connection.

Good luck.

the cable assy.out through the fire wall. Now, if the

to put it back from under the dash, or under the hood.
Whatever is easiest for you, but if it can't, it has to go
back from under the dash. Hope this helps.

My ford explorer hood is stuck down the release does not work

law down on the ground pull yourself under the front bumper look up and locate the hood latch, use long rod or screwdriver and pry the latching lever to release hood, sometimes can be accesed thorough the grill with a flashlight. look for where the cable meets the latch....and if you cant even get to it at all (at all!) then you will have to locate the cable under the dash where it meets the firewall.... cut it to access the cable inside and pull to release. once cut obviously will need a new one.

How do you install a hood release cable in a 1999 300m

piece of cake for me, probably hell for you but here goes, open the hood, Disconnect the cable from the latch wich is located on your hood, then dislocate the other side of the cable from inside the vehicle (under the steering column, left side it should say hood release on the handle). Once this is acomplished look at the grommet openinig where the cable actually goes through the firewall, you must now determin if the cable can slide through easily, I usually attach the new cable to the old cable with electrical tape then I spray the whole cable down with WD-40, then I slide the cable out while pulling the new one in place, remove the tape/oldcable and begin to run the cable exactly like the old one, warning: if you route the cable wrong your cable can bind, which means that your going to close your hood and it wont open up, so you need to run it exactly the same, and when your done dont slam your hood shut. Take a screwdriver and manually lock your hood latch, then pull the handle and make sure it opens easily, if the latch passes the test you should be okay
