    try pulling on the cable cover, sometimes that will release the hood, use a pair of locking pliers.

Battery is dead. Key stuck in ignition. Can't get the hood open. The hood release is not working. Tried grabbing the cable with vice grips and pulling but no go.

Howdie sounds like you need to get some wd and squirt it in the Key Spot and then try taking the cover off the bottom of the Bumper and look up too see the Latch if that works take it off you might need to people workin on the cable won to bang on the hood to release it and to move the cable with the Other thanks again for your time

How to open hood of BMW E46 325i mod 2001. the cable is cut

If the cable is cut can you get under the car and remove the lower splash shield and possibly reach up in fromt of the rediator/condensor and find the cable. I would cut it there and feed it out the grille then strip the outer coating and grab the metal wire inside and pull. This should release the hood. good luck
