Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
The hood release cable is stuck inside the plastic sheath, you can try spraying with WD 40 repeatedly and let soak in between cable and sheath and using needle nose pliers gently try to slide cable back and forth but most likely the cable needs to be replaced.

1988 sedan devile hood latch/cable. can not open the hood.
I had this problem last week and didn't know what to do. went to a mech and was told for $90 p/h they would try and could take 1,2 or 3 hours.
they can not tell till they try. also called a gm dealer service center and was told the same thing except they charge $150 p/h.
no way . I found a sugestion to to the following .
I'll tell you right now it worked and is soooo easy. I made a cable to stick in the hood and opened the hood in 10 seconds. blew my mind.
go to a hardware store and buy a metal rod - steel rod 4 feet - cost 3 dollars.
get the thin rod about the size of a hanger. put it.in a vice and make 2 bends - bend the rod 1 inch at the end and 4 to 5 inches from there on the second bend
...make the second bend at a 60 degree ange .. on the other end of the rod I folded over twice to make a handle then taped the handle side ..
now you have a rod shaped somewhat like a 7 . Now stick it in the fron of the hood between the grill and the hood point todard the latch and ' fish for a min
then tug. it openes.. doesn't take much of a pull and it openes... \I almost fell over ..
so easy. try it ...
