Question about 1998 Chrysler Town & Country
Is the cable that goes to the hood latch broken?
or is it inside the van were the cable broke?
"if the cable is still were it should be....but the lever is broken......you can get a pair or pliers and pull the cable "metal one not the plastic cover"
but if the cable broke inside the hood and now you cant get it to open....
The only tools required are a set of pliers, a good work light, and coat hanger.
"try to make a hook with the coat hanger"
Set the work light down low so that it shines up through the grill at your latch. The coat hanger pulling action. You must use the coat hanger close to where the cable connects to the mechanism, then pull in a direction as close to that of the cable as possible.
be patient......and if you get it to open have the replacement cable ready.......
hope this helps XD

If the cable is not broke at the hood release handle check at the grill but look closely the other end may have come off its position not allowing it to unlatch. I worked on one that it happened to.
