There is a module under the battery that controls the lock for the front axle it has a cable that runs down to the front differential and the connection hardware at the module under the battery has a common rusting problem that deteriorates and causes the cable connection to break

Hi ,
This problem is extremly common. Let me explain something.....
Chances of the cable being broken are very slim. The cable has around 1200 lbs of tensile strength, wheras you can only exert about 30-50 lbs force while pulling the handle inside the vehicle. You can however verify the cable is still attatched by pulling on the handle and feeling behind it with a pair of needle nose pliers to grasp the cable. An extra twist down pull motion at that time can also be achieved to make the cable pull a slight bit beyond its intended travel path. If it pulls very far, it could indeed be detached from the hood latch, but this is highly unlikely. Usually the hood pin gets stuck in the lock due to the fact that people do not lubricate the locks on their car (hood, doors, trunk, rear hatch, etc.). Periodically all these locks , door pins and recievers should be lubricated with white lithium grease and the lube worked in by hand to prevent sticky lock mechanisms. (a squirt of WD-40 into your door locks as well will make them work smoother)
After you have verified your cable is indeed attatched still, push down sharply on the hood and release. This will either reset the lock mechanism or release the hood pin. Try that a couple times, pulling the inside release in between times until your hood pops open. Once open, lubricate the lock in all moving areas and manually work the lock and release a few times to work the grease into the jointed parts to prevent this from occuring again. Do this for all the locks on your vehicle and especially around the pins in the door hinges to reduce wear and insure trouble free lock mechanisms.
Please rate this answer! Thanks, Mike

I gotta 89 dodge dakota with a blower motor out, i changed the resistor and now looking to change out the blower motor it self, where and how do i get it does the whole dash need to come out or just...

Study from in the engine area to see if you have any chance of pulling from there if not then you will need to get under the dash in the area of the motors. From the engine compartment you will be able to see where the motor is so you can pull the cover in that area inside. Good Luck those can be a challenge in some vehicles.

The windshield wipers work but the washer fluid does not, does it have a seperate motor?

Yes, the pump is usually underneth the plastic ws wiper fluid. It takes +12v to operate and goes out quite often. Need to pull tank and check for pressure out put hose. Also could be a small leak losing pressure.
Good luck

Lost Keys with key code, unable to move car.

Get a manual and take apart the steering wheel assembly. once you remove the steering lock plate you will be able to steer it. Then disconnect shift linkage on transmission and put manually into neutral.You will need the manual in order to do any work so it's not a loss. Haynes makes one for around $20
good luck
