pull the latch like you normally would, then look under latch to see the cable. get a pair of vise grip pliars and lock on to this cable and pull hard.

Hrmm. Have you taken the whole latch assembly off ? If not there is a black cover over the assembly which has about 6 screws on it that is also connected to th fan shroud, then after that it's only 2 bolts to undo I believe they are 5/8ths socket, dont quote me. My 97 just had the same problem I popped the hood one day and then it didnt close again. So after taking the assembly out there are 2 springs one that is for after the hood is popped to just open it up that is a big spring about 2 1/2 inches or so. Theres another one at the bottom though that actually keeps the hood latched down on my truck it was rusted and snapped in half. I went to the ford dealer said I had to buy a whole new assembly 25$ plus 2 days wait, I went to home depot in the hardware section found a pack of springs that contain (2) 2 1/2" inch springs and (2) 1 1/2" for 4 dollars used the small one to replace it now I have back up for both. Hopefully this is your problem cause it's cheap and easy to fix just open it up. Let me know if this is it.

On each side of the latch there is an 8mm screw that can be removed through the front, between the hood and grill They are aprox 6" apart.
The latch itself has two locator pins that slide into the front suppoprt behind the grill.
After removing the two screws, gently pry the whole latch away from the support. The hood can be raised, taking the latch with it.
Access to the release lever is behind the latch. It is now exposed.
pull the tiny release lever toward the drivers side and latch will come loose. Good luck!

There was something in the paper, maybe a recall on the latch for the 3rd door. There is a clip inside the door that keeps the lockrod in place. You might want to call the dealer about it. I am not sure you can remove the inside panel without having the door open.
