SOURCE: Hood will not close completely on 1996 Tahoe

Try "resetting" the lock. With the hood open-lube the lock good with wd-40 or similar and go pull the hood latch handle several times. See if it works good when your done. If not ,something may have got bent from closing attempts. Will have to look at adjustment then. Hope I helped. Thanks

SOURCE: hood latch not staying shut.

as far as i can find out no recall on hood latch. you can check with chevy they may have not listed it publicly.
it could have been caused by the latch mechanism slipping a little out of position and not latching completely. check it for allignment upon closing after repair.

SOURCE: hood latch cable fails to release hood when

I would try pushing down and pulling up on the hood while someone operates the hood latch. I'd try to spray some WD-40 between the hood and grill area. From underneath, you may be able to use a long screw driver to try to move the release lever over to release the hood.

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 will not close.


if you look down into the latch with a flash light you should see the hood release cable. it will be attached to a lever. if the lever is stuck all the way to the drivers side than the latch is sticking. Spray some penetrating lube into the latch and then use a thin blade screwdriver to help push it the other way. Continue to spray lubricant, pull the hood release, and move the lever with a screwdriver until it moves freely.

Front Hood won't latch shut


Try lubricating the latch and check your cable inside and make sure its in the right position, the latch wont pop again by pulling cable unless you get a Philips screwdriver and push down on the latch where the hood shuts, when it shuts it pushes that spring loaded lever over and latches. Yours is not latching because either is rusted and sticking, cable is out of position causing it to pull all the time or the hood just isn't going down far enough to latch, possibly something in the way.

2002 chevy tahoe gas cap door wont stay closed


Hello Matthew, Check the hinge on the door and the retainer latch button inside of the filler neck area. Sometimes they stick and won't pop out back out to keep the fuel door latched properly. You can lube the hinge & latch with WD40 to free it up. I have seen this happen a few times on a Blazer. Hopefully, this is all you need. I hope this information is helpful.

Can't pop hood on 2007 Chevy Tahoe


Sounds like the "hood release cable" pulled loose from the clip uneder the hood ...you will have to take a long nose plier reach up from under the car to where the under hood latch is and see if you can get hold of the cable / latch mechanism and release it that way . as far as the battery sounds like the battery is not holding a charge .

My hood latch won't latch when I close the hood. 1997 Ford Exped


Hrmm. Have you taken the whole latch assembly off ? If not there is a black cover over the assembly which has about 6 screws on it that is also connected to th fan shroud, then after that it's only 2 bolts to undo I believe they are 5/8ths socket, dont quote me. My 97 just had the same problem I popped the hood one day and then it didnt close again. So after taking the assembly out there are 2 springs one that is for after the hood is popped to just open it up that is a big spring about 2 1/2 inches or so. Theres another one at the bottom though that actually keeps the hood latched down on my truck it was rusted and snapped in half. I went to the ford dealer said I had to buy a whole new assembly 25$ plus 2 days wait, I went to home depot in the hardware section found a pack of springs that contain (2) 2 1/2" inch springs and (2) 1 1/2" for 4 dollars used the small one to replace it now I have back up for both. Hopefully this is your problem cause it's cheap and easy to fix just open it up. Let me know if this is it.
