2005 quattro , battery is dead and hood wont release.Is it an elecrtonic release?

Heidi, No electric release. The latch is probably stuck. While you pull the interior hood release have an assistant push down and pull up repeatably/vigorously until hood releases from stuck position. Lube latch and cable before closing hood. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Hood latch on 89 dodge 3/4 ton is stuck closed. The cable is no good and I have to have the hood opened before morning.

the cable is loose or came off, you have to pull it by hands through the front grill. it works like the brakes on a bicycle it has a round lead on the end of cable. when you pull the cable the sleeve or cable cover is held in place by a bracket that will pull the latch under the hood. its on the middle under your truck insignia or sign. good luck hope this helps.

check that the cable is still attached to the latch lever... if not use pliers to pull the cable... sometimes the latch gets stuck... have someone push down on the hood while you pull the latch.

2002 Lexus LS430.Original battery is totally do you unlock hood latch with no power. Everything is shutdown.i want to replace battery.

If you're able to get into the car, pulling the hood latch lever the hood should open the doesn't use any power to open, it's all cable. If it still doesn't might have a stuck latch lock. Have someone try to lift the hood while pulling the lever see if that works. If it doesn't work, your hood latch is stuck, but it doesn't require power to open. Hope this helps you open it.

My 86 vette has been sitting for a couple of months and when I went to lift the hood so I could jump it, the latch on the passengers side would not release. The drivers side releases when you hit the...

Hello. This is a very common problem on your vehicle, they even have a special tool to help. You have two options, take off the wheel and inner wheel liner and try to reach up with a coat hanger bent into a hook to release the latch, or make, ( or buy ) a tool to go in through the door jamb under the hood and release it. Both ways are a bit tricky, but it can be done.
