Do you have a new cable?? If not most likely there is a need for it it may be stretched out. You can grab the end of the cable that goes to the release (in the interior) with a pliers and pull it this will finish the cable and a new one will most likely be needed

If the Cable its self has Snapped then You will have to go at it from Under the Front Bumper, Cut the Cable sheath, & Grab the cable with a Small Visegrip. Then get a replacement hood release assembly...----------
Use a large flat bladed screwdriver and wedge it behind the black cone (which isjust behind the secondary latch) on the left side and push it left to right. The hood latch will spring open. --------- Usually you can reach the cable end of the latch ,under the hood's bottom side,at the center.Use a length of heavy coathanger wire about a foot long and form a hook on one end and a hand hold on the other Now if you can hook into the lever and pull it in the direction that the cable does,you may open the latch.This is if you see well enough and can get to the latch or the wire hooked into the end of the latch.You may have to experiment a bit with the hooks size to use it effectively.Have a friend hold down on the hood, to help the latch move easier.Tell him when to let the hood up once you move the latch.-------- this will help.thanks.Helpmech.

Is the cable from the hood release tight or loose ? May be broken. You may have to remove front grill to get to latch mech.
