I own a 1994 Buick LeSabre and I recently experienced the same problem with my hood. When this happened to me I first made sure the hood is fully locked (meaning, I pushed down on the hood making sure it is locked), then I had another person get in the car releasing the hood latch while I was outside with my fingers under the hood pulling up. Once opened, be sure to lubricate the locking mechcanism and the spring and your hood release problem will disappear.
Here's a little tip.....Have someone pop the hood release while you softly but firmly pop the hood with a closed fist.You want to hit it in the center of the hood on the top part with your fist.Make sure your thumb is pointing up so you don't hurt yourself or your car.I hope this helps, rate me accordingly, Thanks!!
if it broke at the dash,cut the cable housing down to get to the cable and pull on it with pliers, if it broke at the latch you can still open it you will need two long skinny screwdrivers and patients
Your going to have to use vice grips or pliers. Just pull hard till you hear the hood pop open or have a friend push down on the hood so you can pull in the hood cable easier to unlock the hood latch. Good luck and keep me posted.
I assume you know to pull the hood release latch under the dash... Now go to the front of the car and find the lock slide, push it towards the right. and pull the hood towards you while lifting... Then go to the back of the hood( close to the firewall) and raise it up. The hood opens from rear. Hope this helps!
