SOURCE: Broken hood release cable. How can I open the hood manually?

The cable is held in place by a metal bracket. If it cam off the bracket it won't work.

Look behind the part you pull and you will see the wire and the outer part of the cable. The end of the outer part of the cable has a groove neer the end. This groove slides onto a slot that is located just behind the pull latch. Once you see it it will make since on how it should go.

You can also grab the outer part of the cable and pull the inner wire. If you can pull the wire almost out, then it is broken. But the chances of that are very low.

1996 dodge intrepid hood latch won't release


Very common problem with the dodges, look under your dash and you will see where the probably now broken cable use to connect. You can pull it by hand to release the hood, They are not hard to replace, just unbolt the handle unit and bolt in the new one. The cable usually just snaps into a holder on the bracket under the dash. Some if these vehicles came with the hood cable that goes all the way to the hood release latch under the hood if that is the case you can still open the hood you just have to do it from under the car in the front. Hope this helped

How do i open hood on my 96 dodge 2500 when hood release is broken


Where did the cable break? Is it still visible? You can look where the hood release was and if the cable is still there you can use pliers to pull it so it will pop your hood. try that

or
lay on your back look up under the grill area of the truck, there is a mechanisim with a claw on it grab ahold of the cable going into the mech. once its open i suggest buying a new 1 or tie rope to a shorter piece of cable

The hood does not open when i pull the hood release inside the car


Your hood release cable has stretched or broken somewhere between the knob inside and the latch under the hood This is not a fun fix you need to trace the release cable to the break n the line sometimes it is possible to unhook cable from knob and pull on wire sleeve to pop hood best of luck
