Hello, Kristin -

Watch the beginning of this YouTube video:

If you have the owner's manual for the car, the information on where the hood release latches are located will be in the manual. If you don't have an owner's manual, I suggest you contact your nearby Dodge dealer and ask how you can obtain one. You will find it useful in the future.

SOURCE: hood latch won't release hood. 91 volvo 240.

Have had same problem on 1990 240 DL. Go underneath, tap ball at end of hood latch sideways with small hammer (take a good look at it --- you should be able to see which way it needs to go to clear). Once released clean and lubricate.

Hood latch


You will have to buy a new hood release cable. Expect to pay in the range of 40.00 for one.
It is a pretty simple replacement. Unhook from the outside hood latch and pull through to the inside.
Of course you will have to remove the screws on the inside handle assembly to remove it.
Just feed it back through the way the old one came out.
Try O'Reilly's or Advance places like that.

My 93 caravan the hood latch won't catch to keep the hood closed


Your hood latch probably isn't returning to the right position for it to catch. This is commonly caused by one of two problems: (1) too much hardened grease and crud on the latch itself is keeping it from operating freely; or (2) the hood release cable has gotten rusty or kinked over time and is no longer releasing completely.
I would suggest testing the hood release cable before doing anything else. It's an easy test and it only takes a minute. Enlist the help of a second person to pull the hood release lever while you look at the hood latch. When your helper pull on the release, you should see the cable pull part of the hood latch. When they let go, that part should swing back to its prior position. Using a long-shafted screwdriver, see whether you can "help" that moving part move any further on its return path. If you can push the latch any significant amount, it's not returning all the way to its proper position, and your hood release cable is probably binding.
In the short term, if you manually push the hood latch back into position, you should be able to close your hood again. However, you'll have to do this each time you open the hood. In addition, you run the risk that, not too far in the future, your hood release cable will actually completely bind or snap, and then you'll have a much harder time opening your hood to replace the cable (or do anything else, like add oil or washer fluid).

Hood will not open due to the release lever on the inside on a 1993 dodge caravan tried pulling the cable but it still will not release the hood


Problem could be the other end of cable came loose from hood release latch under hood. You need to look through the grill closely and see if it did. I have had a few dodge caravans that this has happend to.
