Take a flat screw driver and go to the hooks locking the hood .. you will be able to see the little hook locked. push it to the side and it will pop out.. easy task and very effective.

SOURCE: Where on the 93 Dodge

That is an OBD1 System

Your code reader won't work

You need OBD1 capable reader or
the adapter for an older scan tool

The connector is in the engine compartment

If you need to know where, I will look in my
1992 manual as I departed with my Dakota
june last year.

If you get code I will look them up for you
or tell me the problem your having.

I think the connector is hanging near the
A/C expansion valve on pass side

I have a 2002 vw cabrio. The plastic lever on the lower left drivers side that pops the hood open is not working. When you pull it, it doesn't feel attached to anything & I can't pop the hood open. My car...

Easy fix after you get hood open. They are very substantial latches for security reasons. Does the handle pull the cable all the way out? Hopefully the cable has broken near the Handle and the outer houseing can be pealed away from the cable up to the fire wall. Then a vicegrip plier can be used to grip the pull cable. and unlatch the hood.

Why does my instrument cluster not pull out, even after removing the screws from my 1993 dodge dakota, bulbs burned out and Im trying to replace them, any ideas anyone?

If my memory is correct, a 93 Dakota still has a speedometer cable which may be holding it from pulling out. Look under the hood at the firewall to see if there is a cable coming out in the engine compartment. If there is you will need to try and release it from the back of the speedometer or disconnect the opposite end at the transmission (or at the speed control servo if it has cruise control) so you can pull out the cluster with the cable attached.
