The hood is always mechanical not electrical even on a Lexus. Find the latch on the left lower floorboard near where your left foot rests when you drive. I believe on a Lexus they are flush and sort of difficult to find but I know you will locate. You can even google your make and model and what you are looking for and you should find it. Hope this helps.

How to unlock a range rover with a dead battery


There has to be a keyed entry for this. If not then you will need to unlatch the hood from underneath the vehicle in the front. You may have to get creative but find the cable that releases the hood and pull.

I need to open the hood but the battery is dead the hood rerlease latch doesn't work bease there is o power.


The hood release latch is not run by the battery. there will be a hood release at bottom left of steering wheel. may be two levers. one will be for the hood and the other may be for the fuel door. Your hood is definitely is not open with power. e7b4ea09-a41c-4b55-b94c-260b24f79b4e.png

Battery dead, doors won't open


Two ways to do this. You can try to jump a good battery to your car so it would have voltage to unlock, connect the ground to any good frame contact or engine block, and the other hot end to the hot wire on the starter, this may involve crawling under the car. Another way is to gain access to the hood latch and try to manually get the latch to open, you might have to remove the grill. If you can't get the latch to unlock this way, you could just remove the bolts holding the latch on to the car, and lift hood latch and all. (watch out for your latch cable, as it would probably still be connected and hood won't raise much, but just enough to unlatch the latch.

My Toyota 200 VX V8 has a dead battery and I can not gain access to open the hood and replace teh battery what should I do?


You need to access the hood release at the release mechanism in the centre of the bonet. With any luck with that model hopfully you can access it with a long screwdriver through the grill or reaching up from under the car behind the bumper.

How do i open the hood.


there should be a lever that is on the bottom edge of dash that is under the steering wheel along the trim. if the handle is broken you can use pliers to grab the cable and pull it to get the hood to realse. if you found all that and i seems to work ok then when pulling the release lever have a friend hit or shake the hood to get it to pop up a little so that you can open it all the way.
