If you can't find the button to open the hood, you should question whether you have the ability to change the oil. However the latch is usually near the footwell on the driver's side. If there isnt a button/latch inside of the car, look into the hood where the front grill is. There may be a lever there.

    sorry, thats just my lame attempt at humor. seriously though, the cable could be broken. If there's a lever near the kickpanel on the driver's side that isnt doing anything, then that is most likely your problem. Otherwise, check for a lever behind the front grill near the hood.

2008 Mitsubishi release cable for Hood not working. When pulling on release inside car, the hood does not pop open to reach under and release the safety latch

I have a similar problem on my 2006 VW Passat.

I'm able to open the hood two ways:
1) ask someone to hold onto the lever inside the car while you try to lift the hood to the point where you can use the unlatch button and open the hood fully.

2) Pull the lever completely open in the car and try to find a thick screwdriver or some thick paper folded up to wedge next to the lever to hold it open while you get out and try to lift the hood to the point where you can use the unlatch button and open the hood completely.

Other than this finding a service manual or tutorial online about how to pull out whatever trim or interior covers you would need to replace the cable fully. There should be a specific replacement guide for this item since I'm sure it happens to car's at least semi-regularly

I just changed the oil in my vue and don't know how to reset the change oil light

If you open the hood and pull the fuse panel cover. With the ignition switched on (key on, engine off), press the red button in the underhood fuse panel for at least 5 whole seconds. The may flash a few times but then go off. Now you're reset.

Can't open hood from inside; latch has no tension

Happens all the time. Have someone "thump" on the hood with their hand while you pull the release. It will then probably pop up. Once you get it open, you need to lubricate your hood latch assembly. I recommend a light oil like WD-40. Other oils tend to collect a lot of dirt and grime and cause the latch to stick worse.
