It's under the dash, driver side, on far left, below emergency brake release, and to the left. Once u release it, go to front of car, and open hood (will only open a couple of inches) and release lever in center of hood.

My hood safety latch want release the hood so it can open. How can I get around this

You will need to use a long tool and some spray lube to get it to pop. Have some one hold up on the interior latch while you try 'slapping down' on the front of the hood with your hands and if that doesn't work, try the spray through the grill area. Use the long tool with a flashlight to try pushing the latch from the grill area. Good luck!

If the Interior hood latch and cable are broken how do you open the hood of a 2004 Saturn ion

Good question hard problem .
The cable is likely not broken just streched so now the level inside the vehicle can't travel enough to pull the cable far enough to pop the latch.
You need to remove the cable from the inside level eighter by removeing the int. lever and slideing the cable out it has a little drum at the end of the cable that fits into the lever .If you can get the cable out you can take a pair of vice grips and pull the cable the hood should pop if the isn't broken or frozen inside the jacket.
Try to save the cable if you can you can put spacers at the hood latch end I have used cable ties to do this take up the slack .
But the cause of the problem is the hood lacth lack of lubericant you will need to clean it get it moveing freely again and lub .it with white lithium greese .It comes in a spray can .Do all door hinges strickers and latches every few year and they will last longer and not give you problems .

First of all is this chat free? if not I will continue to serach online the hood latch on a 2005 chevy impala is not working and I need to know how to open the hood without the interior hood release

First, determine why it's not working. Does the pull lever feel normal or is it unusually free or difficult to pull? Free is a broken cable,,, diff to pull is a frozen latch.Try having someone put some pressure on the hood where the latch is, then try to pull the handle.If frozen, this sometimes takes pressure off it and makes it easier to unlatch.
If the cable is broken, sometimes you can snake a stiff piece of wire up from under the front of the car and then pull ******* the cable itself. sometimes this will work.If you can see the latch mechanism from either beneath the edge of the hood or from underneath, use the stiff wire to pull on the bare part of the latch cable.
