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

with the inside door panel removed look inside the door towards the handle you will see 2 bolts/nuts that hold the exterior handle to the door. you will have to disconnect the lock clip that holds the rod to the handle that moves to open the door when you pull on the door handle.

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
