Hood won t close


Check out the cable connection between the latch and your internal latch control. Till you locate the problem I would suggest tying down the hood with some sort of strap so it does not pop open at speed.

The hood on my 99 sunfire is closed shut and won't


The cable is probably broken and not connected to the latch. There are two latches, a primary which the cable is connected, and the secondary or safety.
You'll have to try to access the latch from under the car going up between the bumper and the radiator. You may need a body shop to do it.

Hood latch won't latch when closing


Raise hood,have some one go pull hood latch and you look at latch and see if it releases,if it doesn't then cable may need replacing,I would'nt completely shut hood cause you may not get back open,also check hood latches bolts and latch for something bent or broken.

Loose hood cord 95' civic, first I had to push the little latch that makes the hood shut completely with a screw driver now it won't even open (the hood) I pulled on the cable with pliers but no...


Just perform some checks please,
  • try to pull the hood release lever with its cable tightly pulled towards you.
  • that may tighten the loose cable so a release can happen
  • then pull out the hood piece hard, so the lock would release.
  • trimming is not a good idea, because it would be hard to set it back into the assembly.
  • try this, good luck. vote it!!

Hello, I'm trying to open the hood of my 1991 nissan maxima. I have pulled on the lever to open, however the lever will not move. I do not want to pull it too hard without damaging it. Please help!!!


It is 20, and 10 years past its designed life, this stuff happens. You need to figure out whether the latch cable has broken or the latch itself is bad. If the cable is bad, you should be able to reach up under the dash, find the cable coming from the back of the lever and pull it out from the inside. If it comes freely, then you know it is broken but do NOT pull it all the way out. If however the cable is good but the latch is broken you are going to have to get at the latch via under the bumper or through the grille, and unbolt it or the male prong on the hood. Some extensions and swivels will come in handy for your socket set. When you get the latch or prong loose the hood will open

There is also a remote possibility that the spring which pops the hood up when you pull the lever has broken and the hood is actually unlatched so long as the lever is pulled. Check this by having someone pull and hold the lever from inside while you try to open the hood and release the secondary.

I am working on a 2000 Mercury Cougar and the hood latch won't release when the handle is pulled. I can hear something moving under the front of the hood when the lever is pulled but nothing happens. ...


yes you have to go into the chamber from underneath with a crow bar or similar tool to release the hood latch. once opened check the cable and the latch and with a little luck a few squirts of WD40 is all that will be needed.
