Question about 1995 Toyota Pickup
My 1993 toyota pickup's hood release wont open the hood. The cable still has tension on it but the inside release is loose & flops up & down.Any suggestions.Thank you!
Your cable anchor that holds the cable is loose or is pivoting causing your latch not to have full stroke. Hope this fixes your problem.

try getting a pair of pliers and gripping the cable on the back off the release and popping the bonnet,
if this is no good you may have to go to the dealer to get them to open the bonnet and replace the macanism

Stretched or frayed cable, or possible mechanism seized or broken. Try looking up under hood in latch area, as someone pulls cable lever inside, & watch what happens. You may see a piece getting pulled , and be able to get to it with a screwdriver to assist it in going further to open the latch. Then inspect cable close for conditions I mentioned above. You may be able to tighten up the slack (adjust) once the hood is up, otherwise a new cable may be necessary. If worse comes to worse, you may have to grab that slack in the cable with a pair of vise grips & give a little more pull to get it unlatched. Make sure you lube the mechanism under hood too.
