I have had a few vehicles do that over the years, check the cable for any kinks, if you find one thats bad enough you may need to replace the hood release cable. If no knks are found just lube it up with WD-40, do the entire hood release system, that always worked on mine & one time one of my dumb friends turned a hood alignement stop (on both front corners) & put pressure on my hood so it wouldent pop up unless someone pushed down on it while I pulled the release handle.
oddly enough had this same problem with my car a few years ago. there are a few ways to try it. first pull the hood release and then smack the hood close to the cab (somewhere close to the center) that can release the hood clamp and it may pop up. or you can pull and hold the hood release lever and have a friend smack the top of your hood (while standing in front of the jeep) if these dont work you have to either go under the jeep or through the grille and maually pull the cord that is in the hood latch to open it. then replace the cord. however if the smack technique works just leave the hood open and find the rubber hood stems (theyre the little rubber tipped screw looking things in the front corners of your engine compartment that connects with the hood) and screw them a little to where they raise a couple mm. when screwed up a little they should give the hood enough pressure to pop open when you pull the release lever. long enough for you to tighten the wire connected to the hood release or replace it all together
The hood bumpers are worn or misaligned. After pul;ling the vever, push at one end of the hoods front section as if your trying to rattle it. Most the time they do release. If it doesn't try the oposite side this way. Upon opening it if possible work the latch manually to see if it does work. If it does use lubraplate lithiuim grease on all movable parts
You have to engage the "hood release" from inside the car...
(lower left, under the dash, on side panel.)
The hood must "pop" up enough for you to reach under the hood at the center front. There is a lever an inch to the right of the center of the front of the hood. Swing that lever up and to the left about 2 inches.
The hood will pop open.
As you lift the hood, notice the horizontal metal rod that holds the hood up. While holding the hood open with one hand, lift the metal rod and insert it into the slot (hole) on the hood, beign careful that it is the correct slot on the hood.
Note: If the hood does not pop up when you engage the inside latch, then push down on the hood (it may be stuck) .... don't push down gently... give it a good push and release.
It will pop up.
I know that you knew some of this, but the detail may help others.
Hope this explains it for you.
If you hear a click, try to lightly bump the hood after pulling the release.it may pop up.chevys are bad about sticking.or try pushung down on the hood while someone else pu lls the release, if you hear a click then pull up on hood or bump it with side if fist. just dont hit hard enough to dent hood or hurt your hand.
