SOURCE: broken hood cable

Depends where cable is broken might be able to put vice grip on it and pull it from inside the car with the door open and you looking at the under dash lever. if can't then alternative is to lay on ground with a trouble light and look straight up under front where you think the hood latch is at if you can see the release then try to reach up and pry it enough to get hood to pop up on the safety then reach in and open it normally giving you time to see what is broken and to replace it. normally a book is available at the public library telling you how to specifically remove and replace broken and worn parts step by step, just find the proper book relevant to your model & make take it and see if it helps or not if it does your all set

SOURCE: 92 cadillac deville

I sort of had this problem with my 92 deville...u could try to pull bak a lil more on the release and push forward after that while someone else is outside the car...the person outside the car should try giving the hood a lil push n if it pops up a bit...the latch under the hood is located to the left side next to the grill.

SOURCE: neutral switch 1993 cadillac

The neutral safety switch is on the top of the automatic transaxle (under the hood). You have to remove the air cleaner assembly for access to this item. Once the air cleaner is off, you can see the switch mounted on top of the transaxle.
Remove the shift linkage, electrical connectors and vacuum hose as needed.
Remove fuel line bracket if needed.
Remove mounting bolts and nuts to remove the old switch.

Install new switch as reverse of above.
Put shift lever in neutral.
Align switch so it's alignment hole and the matching tang hole line up. Tighten down the switch mounting bolts. Verify that the engine starts in PARK and NEUTRAL. Re-adjust if it doesn't.

SOURCE: hood release

I had the same problem with WD-40 and man power I over came it. Chances are your latch is rusting / corroded or gummed up. What I did was to lift the passenger side up a little not to much or you will bend the hood, follow the bar as far as you can and spray the release with WD-40. Have someone pull the cable and try moving the release bar on the passengers side back and forth. It may take a little doing but it should eventually release. You know the cable isn't broken because it does release the passengers side, when you finally get the hood open make sure you spray down all three of the latches.

How to get under hood of 94 deville battery dead


If the in-car hood release is not working, the hood latch may be jammed. You can try having someone pull on the release while you are bouncing the hood to try and release it.
Depending on the grille you have, another way is to reach through the grill with a large screwdriver and pry the release arm to the right (where the cable attaches to the release mechanism). Failing all of that, the only other way I know of is to manually release the catch from beneath the vehicle, which will involve removing the lower air shield, reaching up from below and repeating the above procedure.

My father is trying to sale his 1988 2 door cadillac deville he had it park 4 a while and went to put a new battery in but the cable for the hood release broke and is unable to open the hood ! is there any...


If the cable is broken at the hood release lever, I have had luck getting a hold of the cable with a pair of Vise Grips and pulling on it to get the hood open. Once it is open, you can tie a piece of wire to the hood release and let it hang down in the front grille area temporarilly until the vehicle is sold or until you buy a new hood cable assembly.

Can I manually open hood on my 2000 cadillac deville ? And How ? Hood release not releasing.


Under the front there is a cover between the bumper and the radiator support cowl. You have to pry out the plastic plugs that hold it in, then you can actually reach the cable from the bottom. Grab the whole cable with a rag and give it a good yank. It should release with enough force. It won't be easy. Good luck.

Hood release cable broke under hood


this is always a pain but here is the way I try 1st, drop the release handle down and cut back the sheath (cable cover) over the inner wire cable, expose the cable and then get a good pair of vise grip type locking pliers and have some one push down on the hood over the latch area (this removes some of the tension on the latch release) while you pull the stub end of the cable, if this doesn't work then you can try going under the truck to latch, but on this model that would be very difficult.

Hood well not pop when i pull the inside cable latch release


Have someone pull on the cable while you pull up on the hood, if that doesn't work and the cable is broken you will have to get down on the ground and see if you can reach all the way up to where the hood cable comes out of it's protective plastic tubing and connects to the latching mechinism, than pull on cable very hard and it should pop. A short term fix unless you have it replaced right away is this: Use a cutter of some sort and cut through the plastic and all the way through the cable at a long enough distance so you can tie a washer or something to the cable, than you don't have to reach so far up to pop the hood next time. Good luck!
