You might have to go under the car between grill and radiator and locate where the cable went to the hood latch and use pliers to grab latch to open it

How to bi-pass the latch cable of my 98 Jimmy


If you can get your hand up to the latch, you may spring it open with a screwdriver. If there is a grill opening, or remove the grill, or lay underneath and reach your hand up there. Push the lever that the cable attaches to towards the driver's side-that should pop the hood. Getting your hand up there may be a problem-maybe a long bar would help. Good luck.

Broken hood release cable. Can't open hood


this is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.

1998 GMC Jimmy hood release cable broken


Remove the cable from the latch and any hold downs or clamps. Push the rubber gromet through the fire wall into the car. Remove the handel assy. and pull
the cable assy.out through the fire wall. Now, if the
gromet can be removed. You can decide if you wan't
to put it back from under the dash, or under the hood.
Whatever is easiest for you, but if it can't, it has to go
back from under the dash. Hope this helps.
Good luck.

2001 GMC Jimmy question. My hood release cable just snapped when tried opening it. Is there any other way to pop open the hood??


You need to bend a hook in a coat hanger and then try to snag the cable end from the front of the truck,just below the hood.If you know someone who's truck you can look at[any chev or gmc truck] it will be easier for you to figure out.You may possibly have enough cable left inside the truck to get a pair of vise grips on,that would be easier.

Need to open hood manually from outside


it can be done thru the front of the grille , locate the cable coming from the latch mecanism , and cut partially thru the cable to gain access to the inner cable that does the opening of the latch.

it takes a little time an it will be a bit frustrating but it can be done ! I hope all goes well with plowing !
