Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus
Hope this is not too late. I just worked on this exact car and problem. If the cable is broken upstream from the in car release handle here is my solution: The Stratus has four grill panels. Remove the screws from the upper two panels. The panels have a plastic rivet at the very top which can't be removed unless the hood is open so bend the panels up to gain access. With a flash light look through the grill openings and find the latch. The latch has three 12mm bolts holding it in. The two outside bolts are easily removed through the grill openings. The third bolt is tricky because it is lower and dead center to the grill. It is not in alignment with the openings. It is hard to even see it but with a long extension, universal joint and 12mm socket, it is possible to get to it and remove it. I got to it through the passenger side grill opening. With all the bolts removed, the hood opened with the unbolted latch still attached to it.
