    Appears the solenoid on the latch release is working as we can hear it. For some reason hood won't pop. Solved the battery/key issue by charging through cigarette lighter

The thing to do here would be to call a tow truck and get them to open the vehicle for you.

2008 Pontiac Vibe battery is dead. Can't pop hood with hood release to even get to battery. How else can we get the hood opened?


What is wrong with hood release?
Sometimes I use vice-grips on hood release cable, have a helper standing at the end of the hood. At the same time you pull the release cable, have the helper pop the hood in area of release mechanism with palm of hand, sometimes that works to open hood. If you get it up, lube everything.
Some makes and models, I can remove front grille and reach the release mechanism. Don't know about your vehicle?

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.

How can I open the hood of my car when the cable does not work without breaking the front grille?


it's not easy so ill give you my best ( cuz it happened to me ) try to find where cable goes to hood latch if you can use a coat hanger with a sharp bend in it like a hook and find where it connects to hood release in grill hook it and pull at some point you may have to crawl under it to find cable. next one is if you can see that hood release cable is still hooked up try to get it where you can grab it with VICE GRIPS and squeeze it as tight as possible and pull hard, if this dosent work do you know for sure your self that cable is broken in two places find where and use VICE GRIPS . hope some of this helps let me know thanks Woody.

Hood release cable out from hood latch


from under the car you will need to get up to where the actual catch mechanism is located, from there you should be able to manually release the hood, it may take some effort , but there will be access,although limited... if there is part of the cable accessible grab it with vice grips and pull, hood should release. if not you'll have to find the part on the catch itself that the cable connects too and pull it to release.

How to open hood.


You have to find the broken cable from underneath the vehicle and pull it with a pair of vice grips until it releases. You cannot relatch the hood until a new cable is installed, so have it towed to a shop instead of trying to drive it with the hood "tied".

Hood release on 95 S-10 inoperable


Have one person pull the hood release inside cab while the other person pushes down on front center of hood.  One might have to push down a few times before it releases.  This only works for stretched cable not broken cable.

Try this:
Get behind the hood release lever and grab the wire with a pair of vice grips then pull. After you get it open adjust the wire so this won't happen again.
