Cannot open front hood


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.

Please remember to rate this solution. Thanks!

Hood cable broke and now my hood wont open on 1999 ford taurus. what do i do?


get a pair of good Vise Grip locking pliers, cut back the outer sheath off the cable inside car to expose the inner wire core of the hood release cable, clamp the vise grip locking pliers as hard as poss on the inner wire core, then have someone push down on the hood over the latch area center front of hood, pull the wire core and the hood should release.

Hood release cable isn't connected to interior hood release lever


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.

2000 Chevy Blazer with Broken Hood Release. How do I open the hood


can you reach the cable itself?,or is it broke at the hood latch?IF its not broken at the outside latch, try to follow the cable,un-hook it from the handle and pull on the wire cable to open it.IF its broken at the latch itself,you are going to have to reach the latch through the grille and try to pull the lever the cable connects to.That part is no fun at all..!!
