I had the same problem. A couple shots of spray lubricant into the latch mechanism in the lid fixed it.

When I pull the hood lever to open hood it doesn't open.

Most likely sticking due to lack of use. Have someone pull on the release lever while some one tries lifting the hood at the same time. Usually pulling the handle and banging on the hood release area will also make it pop open if no one is around to assist you. Worse case scererio is a broken/disconnected cable and that can cause problems to get the hood open

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

Rear hatch won't can i fix this

The following advice is not a joke. I am very serious:

Place a towel on a spot over the lock catch. Now, with the ''ball'' of your hand (face of your hand just above the wrist), _bang_ as hard as you can without denting the metal. Do this about three times, quick and hard as possible (Bang! Bang! Bang!). Then try opening the hatch. This usually works very well. And it also works on stuck hoods. If it doesn't work, try it again a few times. It is now Winter and a ''Summer Bang'' will obviously work much easier. (Good luck)

Can't turn the key (either way) to start the car.

I've had this problem numerous times - I ended up banging on the key when it was in the steering wheel column, just banged on it several times - straight into the key hole, which seemed to jar the mechanism enough to allow me to turn the key. It's not a permanent fix, nor is it logical, but it seems to work. Plus, it saves me money.

My hood got stuck and i cant open it how do i open it help

Common problem. Have someone pull the release while you bang on the edge of the front of the hood with the heal of your hand, keep on the edge as you can dent the hood very easy. it will pop open then spray the latch with WD40. Let me know if this works.

Are you sure it has a cable fitted as mine opens from the front of the car with the key. to do this you swing the ford badge up insert the key, turn it one way to pop the hood then turn it the other way to release and lift it at the same time

96 voyager stalls won't turn over after some time it goes

1- under the hood their is a two relays Fuel pump and engine cut off. locate both relays. Next time the vehicle will not start have someone inside the vehicle turn the key to start and if feel with your fingers the top of the relay and listen for the CLICK. It is possible that one of the relays is sticky. I would just replacement as they are only 10-12 bucks from most dealers and auto parts stores. If this does corrected the problem next time the vehicle does not start bang the gas tank with a sometime and try it again. If it starts after banging then you fuel pump motor is sticking
