Hood release doesn't work


Have you tried banging on the hood near the cowl or windshield, while pulling the hood latch, to see if it pops open?

If the cable is stretched or broken, you may have to get to the latch from underneath, and pry the latch with a small screwdriver-the cable will attach to a lever that pulls towards the driver's side to open the latch. Sometimes you may need to take off the grill (if able to with the hood closed), and then you can get to the latch with your hand.

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 won't close tight on my bmw745li


Try spraying a little WD 40 on the hood latch. Sometimes it gets stuck and just needs to be loosened up a bit.

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.

95 audi hood latch won't release


Common problem on MANY cars. Try getting an helper to "thump" on the hood while you pull the cable. If this works to get it to pop up, I would recommend lubricating the hood latch assembly with some lithium spray lube before closing it again.

C320 hood release handle won't pop the hood


I don't think there is a day that goes by in the shop where we don't get at least one vehicle that is doing this. Just use two people. One to pull the cable release and the other to slap the hood with their hand and tell it to cooperate. Usually, just a little "jarring" with the cable pulled will get it to pop up.

Trunk pop open when driving


close hood and lift up on hood to see if it stays closed.
if not, check inside car to see if latch(that you pull) is in the correct position. you can tell when hood is closed that there will be some tension on latch.
check under hood, where hood closes on latch of hood, is tight and secure(no loose bolts)
also check cable if broken.
only those things can cause hood to pop open.
if all visual inspections check out and still continues to open while driving then the latch (the mechanism that hold the hood down) is bad. vibrating while driving will cause it to open.

I have a 2009 Chevrolete Aveo. The hold light suddenly flushes. Would you please help me find out what is causing this?


is your hood popped or loose? open the hood and look at the latch to see if its broken or if its not closing the whole way when you close the hood. if everything looks good try adjusting the hieght of the bumpers which the hood sits on. don't go crazy with adjusting the bumpers.
What the problem probably is tho is a bad hood sensor. its a little button that is pressed when the hood is closed. they can go bad if someone spills fluid or they get loose. you can try to replace it then if you can see it (might need to remove some plastic)mbut i would just take it to a local shop. as long as it does close the whole way and you don't physically see the hood bouncing in the wind or open, its safe to drive.

My 2001 taurus hood will not close it stays in the pop position


Take a close look at the hood latch and see if the latch is binding and if the hood cable is not pulling back to the neutral position. Good luck and keep me posted. A good spray of WD 40 will help clean out any corrosion and dirty too.
