SOURCE: The hood release lever does not release the hood.

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.

How far do we have to drive caravan to reset computer for inspection..


Your Dodge Grand Caravan, like all vehicles manufactured after 1996, has an on-board diagnostic system. When one of your Grand Caravan's sensors indicates that a system is not operating properly, it will trigger the vehicle's "check engine" light. Sometimes the cause of the error can be as simple as tightening a loose gas cap. In order to verify that the cause of the problem has been fixed, the computer on your Grand Caravan will need to be reset. This process is simple and takes less than 10 minutes.

I can't get hood open to my buick regal gs


WHen I have a car with a hood that won't open, I go thru the grille. Disassemble the grille off the front of the car, and anything else in the way until you can get a hand/screwdriver/pry bar/etc. on the
lock release, and reach up and release it. What happens with hood release mechanisms is that they experience rough use (hood open/close cycles combined with road vibration), and become loose. Once they're loose even a little (even as little as a quarter inch), the hood won't open.

Horn is not working on 2002 dodge grand caravan.


Try checking the fuse in the fuse box panel either under your hood, or under your dash. If the metal on the inside of the fuse is busted, then your horn won't work.

My 93 caravan the hood latch won't catch to keep the hood closed


Your hood latch probably isn't returning to the right position for it to catch. This is commonly caused by one of two problems: (1) too much hardened grease and crud on the latch itself is keeping it from operating freely; or (2) the hood release cable has gotten rusty or kinked over time and is no longer releasing completely.
I would suggest testing the hood release cable before doing anything else. It's an easy test and it only takes a minute. Enlist the help of a second person to pull the hood release lever while you look at the hood latch. When your helper pull on the release, you should see the cable pull part of the hood latch. When they let go, that part should swing back to its prior position. Using a long-shafted screwdriver, see whether you can "help" that moving part move any further on its return path. If you can push the latch any significant amount, it's not returning all the way to its proper position, and your hood release cable is probably binding.
In the short term, if you manually push the hood latch back into position, you should be able to close your hood again. However, you'll have to do this each time you open the hood. In addition, you run the risk that, not too far in the future, your hood release cable will actually completely bind or snap, and then you'll have a much harder time opening your hood to replace the cable (or do anything else, like add oil or washer fluid).
