If the in-car hood release is not working, the hood latch may be jammed. You can try having someone pull on the release while you are bouncing the hood to try and release it.
Depending on the grille you have, another way is to reach through the grill with a large screwdriver and pry the release arm to the right (where the cable attaches to the release mechanism). Failing all of that, the only other way I know of is to manually release the catch from beneath the vehicle, which will involve removing the lower air shield, reaching up from below and repeating the above procedure.

My door lock buttons dont work inside my mercedes s430

either the lock activators do not work, maybe the handset battery is dead? There is a small lock-activation motor in each door which opens and closes using the "lock" and "unlock" buttons on the handset, but if the circuit to the lock actuator is broken the motor will not work. Try disconnecting the battery under the hood. After disconnecting one post, wait 4 or 5 min and re-attach the battery cable and tighten...this will reset the auto's computer. Maybe that will work.

Hood cable broke or came loose on 1992 coupe deville cant get hood up

You'll have to try going thru the grille or from under the bumper to access the hood latch.
You might want to look at another GM product to gauge were the latch is in your car.
Sometimes you can use a coat hanger as a hook to pull the latch from outside the grille or between the grille and hood. Or use a long screwdriver from under the bumper.

Which fuse controls 94 deville seats and door lock

There is a fuse box under the hood, on the right side, clearly marked. There is a stabilization bar that runs right over it, which must be removed. The plastic cover that the already visible fuse panel is accessible through can now be lifted off, exposing the relays and larger fuses for additional electronic items, including the power door locks.

How to install battery in new battery

Place the DeVille in "Park" and allow the vehicle components to cool for a half hour.

Locate the battery under the hood of the DeVille. The battery tray is located on the driver side of the Cadillac. Locate the strap securing the battery to the battery tray and unbuckle the strap.

Disconnect the negative cable using a combination wrench. The negative cable is the black cable. Place the cable to the side. Disconnect the positive cable next, which is the red cable, and place it to the side. The battery can now be removed. Lift the battery off of the battery tray, carefully. Dispose of the battery per local regulations.

Use a wire brush and clean rag to clear away debris and dirt on the battery tray to ensure a clean connection.

Install the replacement battery by placing it on the battery tray. Buckle the battery tray harness around the battery. Reconnect the red cable, followed by the black cable, using the combination wrench. Close the hood of the DeVille.

my '94 bird did the same exact thing, but a few days ago the wire to my under hood light started shorting out and smoking so I grabbed it and broke the connection apart. then I noticed that the interior lights were on, while the door was closed and the switch was off I disconnected the battery at times I was not using the car I got tired of connecting and disconnecting the battery all the time so I disconnected the beeper, unplugged all the interior lights that would not go off, and now I use it day for day but I noticed where the door lock lights on the outside were also on at all times but I concluded that the wattage is so low in those lights that they can be on for a time before the battery will drain down to low for starting but now the wipers quit working also.............I thought it was a nice auto but I may have to put that bird to a rest..............

Where the relays ac of a 1995 cadillac deville is locate the blower of the a/c dosen't stop when i turn off the a/c

Hello. Will do my best to help, You have this listed as a 1998 DeVille, in the verbage you say its a 1995. okay if the blower motor continues to run when you turn the key off then regardless of the year model the electronics in the blower motor has failed and it will have to be replaced. If its running with the key off you can disconnect it under the hood. It is located just off center to the driver side. It has a 3 wire connector this will keep the battery from going dead. Hope this helps. Thanks

Try setting the alarm ,and make sure the hood doors and trunk are closed,after setting the antitheft,leave it for 1 minute and disarm it,then see if it will start,if it is not the antitheft,and it is in the key fob,the cylinder you are talking about maybe the problem.

2001 cadi deville wont start new starter battery is good , remote will notlock or unlock door , trunk wont open either with remote open trunk

I'm sure you've checked, but will the headlights come on? Radio? Any sign of power? Did you check the battery voltage under the hood? Our 2001 was dead. No signs of life at all. I checked the voltage and was approx 3.5V on new battery. I pulled the back seat and measure straigt off the battery. 11.89V. Believe it or not, had loose connection for no rhyme or reason. Tighted battery connections and we're back on the road. Just a thought.......

Clicking noise under hood of 2001 Chrysler Sebring

Sounds like you have a dead battery. You either need a jump start with jumper box or clean battery terminals and see if that works
