Locked out of '95 Chevy C1500; need to open hood from outside

I have a '95 Chevy C1500. It has no exterior door handles and opens with poppers by a remote control. The problem is that the battery is dead, so the doors won't pop. So now I can't get into the car to pop the hood so I can charge the battery to open the doors.

I don't want to call a locksmith because I got ripped off last time this happened. Is there a way to pop the hood from the outside? I can get the hook in the center of the hood open, but have no idea where the latch is that you release from the inside. Thanks!

Best idea i can think of is to be careful and you can connect the jumper cable to the main power at the starter and the ground to almost anything under there to get enough power to get the doors to pop its a pain but it beat paying the lock smith

How to pop hood from outside of 2004 chevy trailblazer


You cannot release the bonnet from the outside.

In any case the key should open the driver's door manually. You will need to turn it either once or twice in succession. If it will not open then pull on the handle and turn the key in the lock at the same time.

1995 Tahoe inside door handle doesn't open the door


The inside door handle itself is probably broken.There is a weak point where the handle joins at the pivot(my 99 Chevy work truck handle broke so many times that I got fed up and fabricated my own handle from solid steel!) I believe this part is the same one in a 95 model year truck.The assembly (handle and surrounding plastic stuff) is only a few bucks(try RockAuto.com).The handle usually will break completely off when it starts to crack,but not always.

Door wont open from the outside it isnt the handle its the push r


Chances are pretty good that when you pop into the dealer to get the parts you need, the parts guy will let you have a look at his schematic. He might even print it off, most of these guys are pretty good that way.

How to install exterior door handle on 95 Safari Van


hi, remove the entire door interior panel, keep notes and diagrams as you go, even take pics, usually the exterior handle is secured by 2 small screws or nuts, undo these and the handle will detach . there will be a small rod connected to this handle by a small clip or similar. reassembly is a reversal of the entire process, just take your time

Driver side door


a small white plastic connector has broken at handle (outside) I discovered this tonight, removal of the handle does allow one to access the lift rod from the outside of the car via the hole left. The electric, and manual lock still works, and it will not open if locked! Good way to have fast access until replacement part can be found, I will update when that happens,
