If the grille screws are accessable remove the grille which should give you access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lever aside to release the hood
Hope this helps

I have a dead battery. I need to know how I can open the hood so I can get to the battery


If your cable is broken, not easy, so I assume you are pulling release and it is not opening hood, which is typical reason for not being able to open hood. You will need to identify where break is first, and this is the tough part, sometimes it is simply a stretched cable which happens before it snaps completely. You may have to trace cable to hood latch, you may have to cut cable to access inside wire and then use vise grips to release and then replace whole cable. FREE-PPV.com

Hood latch inside the rodeo will not release hood. what is the best way to get the hood up?


is it at the handle which pulls the chord?
Can you get to the chord under the dash?
If it is there, then use vise grips to pull it to open it - it may also help having a second set of hands to pull the hood up when pulling the chord...
Otherwise you may be able to get under the vehicle - otherwise I'm not too clear on why it isn't operating..

My hood release cable on my 95 intrepid broke just wondering were is the release locaded so i can open my hood and hows an easy way to fix that.


Usually the handle breaks off the cable, you should be able to use some vise grips to grab a hold of the cable and pull it to open the hood. To repair it the cable assembly will have to be replaced. If not you will have to gain access to the latch which is located in the front center of the hood and using a screw driver or something similar push the lever to release the latch.

Hood release is broken...need to open hood


A hood release works with a cable that pulls the latch open. if you have a long flat head screw-driver you can try to spring the latch itself through the front grill.

My hood wont pop open on my 1999 isuzu trooper.


If the cable is not broke have someone pull on the latch inside while you repeatedly press down on the hood. It might take a few tries but it should finally pop. Once it does open spray the latch and linkage with a silicone spray to get it lubricated and do this frequently to prevent it from happening again. If the cable is broke inside at the handle you will have to remove the kick panel, strip the coating back on the cable and pull the cable with a pair of pliers it should release. If the cable is broken under the hood, you will need to remove the grill and use a screw driver to release the latch.

Hood latch broken.how can i get the hood open....2004 isuzu axiom


first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.
