According to the sevice manual, "Release the hood from below, using a suitable rod, by pressing on the hood release tab at the right side of the lock assembly." I went out and looked at my truck and that is as clear as mud. You are going to have to do it from under the rad support.Get a piece of long steel rod, or a long cheap screwdriver and bend it close to a right angle. Work it up through the hole where the secondary catch is and aim the bent piece to the driver's side. Puu the rod back toward the firewall to keep it in contact with the latch as you slide it across. The tab you have to hit is about 6' from where you are going to start and it will have to move almost an inch to release. The secondary latch has a shield to stop you from doing this at the hood, unless you have a really long piece of small steel rod and could put it in from the fender area.You'll have to put a bend in it as well but not as much.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: inside hood latch broke, so
I would assume that the plastic handle broke from the cable? If so, try grabbing on the end of the cable with a pair of locking pliers. Latch onto the cable and hold the casing, then pull really hard. It should pop the hood. After you get the hood open, replace that cable, or if possible, leave the vice grips on it until you can get it to a shop to get it replaced.

You'll have to remove part of the grill and try to access the latch from inside. Yoy may have to unbolt the entire thing, but make sure you mark it 1st so that you know how to put it back in the EXACT spot it came from. Then once out, you can extracate it from the latch pin on the hood, replace your cable and start fresh. Good luck, this is one of those things that no matter how long you've been working on cars, its always hard to do!

you can open it with a long thin screwdriver. Look thru the center top of the grill. You should be able to see the cable running to the latch. Follow the cable to the end and you should be able to get in there with the screw driver and fish around to get it to unlatch. After you get it open you can tie a piece of wire to the latch sticking out of the grill to pull on and release it till you can get it repaired. Most likely the cable or pull handle is broken
