Question about Dodge Ram 1500
I have seen guys use a really long screw driver to flip them open from under the front bumper but never had to try myself yet

im taking a guess that the inside latch your refering to is the latch inside the cab of the truck, if so inspect the cable, can you see the metal cable inside the black housing, if you do take a vice grips and grab onto tightly and pull, this should release the mechinism same as if you pulled the latch, otherwise if you can see the cable within, crawl under the front of the truck, between the radiator and grill, reach up to the latch and disconect the cable that comes from the cab, it will be the only cable coming to the latch assembly, as you remove it, it kind of just clips in place, you will see what it pulls to release the latch, grab a screw drived and lightly force the piece over to pop the hood, i know it can be frustrating from experience, took me a while the first time, and they sure dont give you much room to work with, but a little patience will pay off with this , wish you the best of luck!

What you should do is spray the latch with pb blaster,556,or wd40.Shut the hood and after a couple of times it should work better also do a visual inspection of the latch and make sure nothing is bent.

SOURCE: hood release wont latch
This maybe a problem of the hood being misaligned. in order to remedy this you will have to adjust the 4 bolts on the hinges holding the hood in place and the latch little by little. But first try a penetrating oil on the latch assembly and look for anything out of place.
