Hood release inside car isn't working


yes actually, you might need to lay on your back with a pair of pliers though, when you pull on the hood-release handle under the dashboard, you will see a wire cable behind the plastic handle, grip that wire with the pliers and pull till you hear the hood pop, then adjust the cable from under the hood to remain shorter.(it's stretched a bit over time is all)

Hood release will not work


While having someone pull release, trying banging with palm of hand on front of hood near latch, it may just release. If that fails, try getting a small pair of pliers or vice grips on cable behind lever you pull to open, and trying pulling cable more, that way. There should be a way to adjust /tighten cable once you get it open and look at latch where cable is attached. Lubricate mechanism as well once open.

The hood release isn't working and i don't know how else to get the hood open


find a pair of pliers, remove the handle to pull on the hood release cable, and using the pliers (prefferrably locking pliers) pull on the cable, this should release the hood quickly

Hood latch cable broke and need to know how to open the hood


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.

Well my hood is jammed shut cable seems to have snapped


if you pried the hood up enough to see the latch then you should be able to reach the cable with a pair of pliers or vise grips, or you could see if you can reach the bolts holding the hood latch and remove it.

you may want to check where the cable attaches to the handle inside the vehicle and see if it is still connected.perhaps the release handle is broken and you might be able to pull the release cable with pliers.

good luck and I hope this helps.

Hood release cable is broken


Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

How do I open the hood of a '95 K1500if the latch release fails?


You may have a disconnected cable, or the release spring won't pop up the hood. First try having someone else lift up on the hood as you try the release, this may open it. If not, the cable may be disconnected, where you will need to pull the plastic pannel off inside your truck where the hood release lever is. Inspect the handle, and where the cable goes into it. Also try using a pair of pliers on the cable once it's off the handle, because it may be stretched or broke. If that does it, you will need another cable, or just carry the pliers with you.
Hope this helps
