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.

You can adjust release on front brace by loosening bolts and setting it. I grease all my latches with moly grease. And lube cable under dash shield.

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.

1993 Nissan Sentra XE - Hood Release Broken.


Inside the car where you broke the handle off the hood release you will have to look under the handle or behind the dash to find the cable that it was attached to. IF you find the cable you can grab it with a pair of pliers and pull it to release the hood. It works just like bicycle brakes if you know what i'm saying. Very simple. You shouldn't have any issues finding it. THanks.

98 crown victoria hood won't latch


Let's starts at the beginning, inside the car. When you pull the release cable, is it moving freely? Sometimes cables dry up. This may be your issue. You can buy "cable ease" which is a graphite lube. *Its can be messy so be careful and bring plenty of rags!!!* Follow the directions on the package and you should do fine.
Under the hood you have 2 latches, the one which holds it closed tight and another attached to the little handle that's under the hood. The one that holds it tight is the one attached to the cable/handle inside. Find the latch and spray it with a penetrating oil (WD40 or Blaster work well for me) You may want a friend's help for this part. You'll want to spray it, trigger the mechanism with a screwdriver or similar and then have a friend pull the handle inside. You'll need to repeat this a number of times until the mechanism is moving freely. I recommend spraying the latch with white (lithium) lube to protect it and keep this from happening again. You can spray and move the secondary latch in a similar manner to fix and maintain it.
*** I'd recommend trying the latches under the hood first***
Out of the two, I've found it more likely the source of the problem and easier to fix as well. Good luck and please let me know how you made out!
