2005 quattro , battery is dead and hood wont release.Is it an elecrtonic release?


Heidi, No electric release. The latch is probably stuck. While you pull the interior hood release have an assistant push down and pull up repeatably/vigorously until hood releases from stuck position. Lube latch and cable before closing hood. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do I open hood when cable or latch is broken


If the plastic hood release handle inside is broken, can you reach the steel cable, if so, use a pair of vice grips to grab the cable and pull. Sometimes it helps to have a helper standing at the end of the hood and pop the hood with palm of hand, in the area of under hood release mechanism, at the same time your pulling the cable.

If cable is broken, some makes and models, you can remove front grille and get at under hood release mechanism.

There is usually a primary hood release, inside vehicle, and a secondary release under the hood, you have to slide your hand under the hood to release, sometimes you have to press down on the hood a little to move release. Trying to shut the hood with secondary release engaged can be difficult, you don't have the distance and the weight of hood to swing down.

Hood release cable is broken. how to get the hood open


you can either go from under front of vehicle, and use a few extentions to take hood latch off to open hood. or take grill off if possible to get hood open. from the inside of vehicle, if there is cable you can grab onto. just take a pair of vise grips and pull on cable. have a good day !!

Can't release the hood 2002 dodge neon


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.

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.
