Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
Hood release will not work on my 2000 explorer. Is there a secondary release anywhere.
Unfortunately no. There are two things to try though.
If when you pull the release it feels as though the latch is releasing (without the hood rising), try pushing the hood down (relatching), giving it a sharp rap right above the latch or prying the hood up.
If when you pull the release nothing happens:
Get a flashlight and a long set of needlenose pliers.
Look through the front grill and locate the latch. You should be able to find the release cable. Grab it with the needle nose and pull it away from the latch. You'll hear it release.
Be patient, you'll get it.
