Broken hood release lever under steering weel. Need to open hood to jump start vehicle, to get it to service bay. How can you open hood without hood release lever?

try to see if you can remove the grill, often times the grill is held in by screws accessed from the front of the car-if that does not work, you will probably have to get under the nose of the van and reach up to grasp the cable end (use vise grips) and pop the hood. Try the grill first though, use a flash light to carefully see if it can be done that way.

93 plymouth voyager - radiator hose leaking, chirping sound from engine and hood release broken so hood won't stay closed. Is this something a 50 year old woman can fix by herself?

you can try an tighten clamp that holds hose onto rad, or if its hose, take it off an go to parts store an get same thing an put on same way took off......chirping could just be belt or pulley, ( cant really say what to do about that)....hood release can get from parts store also, should only be 2 bolts hold it down an you'll see how cable is in there...An yes you can do it, as long as you dont mind getting dirty...

depending on where the cable is broken your can still release and open the hood. if it is broken inside the van in the footwell is the easiest...locate the end of the cable and with a set of visegrips pull the cable to release the hood.

Hood cable broke any way to release the hood without it

If the cable broke right at the internal handle you can sometimes grab the end of it with a vise grip. If it broke in the middle you may have to remove the grill, and then remove the locking mechanism on the bottom side of the radiator support. Sometimes you can trip the release from there with a screwdriver. But I would advise taking the grill out to get to it.

1994 plymouth grand voyager hood release cable broke wont open

Try pulling on the metal cable with vise grips if that don't work as you are pulling on the cable have someone else tap on the hood with there hand as far towards the front on the hood as possible right in the middle from left to right,if that dont work jack up front of vehicle and jack it up pretty high and block it up with jack stands or whatever and look up between the grill and the radiator and see if you can see the plastic outer coating of the cable if you can see it follow it to the latching mechanism and trip it with a screw driver or something once hood is open before you shut it use something like pb blaster dw 40 or something like that and oil up the end of the cable and the latching mechanism.

How to open hood.

You have to find the broken cable from underneath the vehicle and pull it with a pair of vice grips until it releases. You cannot relatch the hood until a new cable is installed, so have it towed to a shop instead of trying to drive it with the hood "tied".

1999 Plymouth grand voyager engine hood will not open after operating the release lever inside car. Eventually it loosens and open days after operating the lever. Any thoughts on how to repair? Thanks Ed

I had this problem on mine i loosend up the cable end by the hood latch and checked to make sure nothing was bent, you can also buy a new cable for it as it may be broken somewhere in the way for around $25. but check the end at the hood latch usually gets gummed up with grease and dirt
