Question about 1993 Cadillac DeVille
The in side release cable is not working at all what can i do to open the hood thankyou
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

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.
