Location of a 2006 Nissan Frontier hood safety latch release

Just bought a 2006 Nissan Frontier with no manual. I have an 04 Nissan Frontier that opens after pulling the handle inside by releasing the hood safety latch just under and below the middle of the hood. My question is since there is a grille under the engine hood in the middle and on the front of the 2006 Nissan Frontier truck, where do you put your hand to release the hood safety latch on the front of the truck? This may sound like a dumb question, but since I don't have a manual and just got the truck yesterday I am having a hard time with this. Dana

I opened my hood for the first time since I bought. The hood won't close all the way. any suggestions.

If ir is a brand new car there is a safety latch that should hold the hood down. You can pull on the hood to be sure the safety latch is doing its job. Drive the new car take it back to the dealer or where ever you bought it.

They will slam the hood down and smile. Better them breaking the new car than you,'

It may be out of adjustment
You can manually activate the hood latch. There is a hook like assembly that follows the hood latch down when closed. You can activate this assembly by hand. Be sure to release it before attempting to close the hood again.

If it is a used car make sure the handle in the driver side has returned to the home position. If it has I would gently slam the hood down.

Nissan quest dead battery - keys locked in van - get hood open

you need too get some sort of hook on the end of a handle, something smaller but still strong enough to pull against with out bending or breaking. then standing at the front of the van using a flashlight look through the grill until you find the hood latch, then locate the black cable running into the side of the latch hook on to it and pull as hard as you can while simultaneously bouncing pressure on the font center area of the hood with your other hand until you hear/feel the hood latch release or "pop"!

2006 expedition battery is dead and the hood release will not work

Apply some downward pressure on the hood (careful not to dent it) to relieve some of the pressure on the latch, and have someone else pull the release handle. If the cable is broken you are going to have to wiggle under the engine bay and hope you can manually release the hood latch. I hope this helps!

I have a 2006 nissan frontier crew cab i just pulled the handle to open the hood cable intact hood wont open how can i open it from the outside

There is nothing easy about doing this. The cable on Nissan vehicle is encased in a sheath all the way to the point where it mounts to the release itself so there is no way to cut the cable an fish it out with a hanger. Your going to have to try and access it from the very small space between the grill and the radiator mounting bracket area. This sometimes requires the removal of a small underside splash guard that protects that area from debris.
