Hood won t close


Check out the cable connection between the latch and your internal latch control. Till you locate the problem I would suggest tying down the hood with some sort of strap so it does not pop open at speed.

Hood latch won't latch when closing


Raise hood,have some one go pull hood latch and you look at latch and see if it releases,if it doesn't then cable may need replacing,I would'nt completely shut hood cause you may not get back open,also check hood latches bolts and latch for something bent or broken.

Pontiac Vibe hood won't latch


the problem for me was an internal spring that was rusted and thus frozen. the quick fix is to pop off the small plastic cover in front of the latch and pack a lot of thick grease into the openings of the latch to reach the spring. worked for me

Can't get our hood open


Hood latch or cable is frozen up (rusted). These can be a challenge to get fixed, because you don't have access. You can try to see if you have access through the front grille or go under the car and look up for the latch. Hopefully you can get to the latch and release it. My worst one was a mid 70s Corvette with the latch by the windshield (hood opens forward). This latch was above the cowl assembly and you had to work around the engine. Good luck...

Cherokee 1998 hood latch won't open.cable frozen ?


frozen or broken. try a good whack on front on hood while someone pulls latch, see if you can free it up. no luck? try pounding at driver's side near the windshield while someone pulls latch. no luck? You can crawl under front with a screwdriver and reach up and try to release the latch manually. push the little lever the cable attaches to over towards driver's side. good luck. When open, see if cable operates latch: if good spray it liberally with penetrant. If your cable is broken, just get a new one or visit a salvage yard. The hood latch can be adjusted a small amount.

Pulled hood release and it snaped! How can I get hood open if I can't see or find access to latch? Have 2 weeks to fix idling problem which I think is a carb situation, but hood won't open at...


it will be difficult to gain access to the hood release latch but you can get to it.you need to find were cable connects to the latch arm either through the grill or under the car looking up at the latch.then you will have to get something that you can use to get to the release arm to move it in the correct direction to unlatch the hood to open.you will need alot of patience for this.good luck.

I can't get my hood to open. The internal release works but the latch under the hood won't release. How can I get the hood open


While someone is pulling the thing inside the cars have someone outside the push down in the center front (where the latch is underneath) down. You may have to kind of push and release quickly. If the cable is still attached there it should release.
