Question about 1995 Plymouth Voyager
Cable to the hood release broke and my battery is dead, how can I open my 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".

I have a similar problem with my 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. The way I open the hood is to reach my hand between the radiator and the front of the car, and for me there is a bar running right up the middle if I follew that too the top, and on the drivers side of that bar should be the hood release, and I feel around till I feel the hood release cable, and then I push on the lever that the cable is attached too, most of the time this works. Hope this helps.

You will need 2 people to get the hood open. While you pull on the hood release cable have an assistant gently pound on the center of the hood until it pops up. If this does not work, inspect the hood release lever to see if the pivot broken, if so pull directly on the cable with a pair of locking pliers. After you get the hood open make sure to spray the latch with penetrating oil (WD40)

get a pair of vice grips and use them to get a hold of what remains of the release cable and pull,,,after success,,,get a new cable installed.

SOURCE: Broken tab to hood release cable
Get a long screwdriver and try to release the secondary latch that way. Or if you have small hands reach up under the hood and pull the secondary latch toward the left.
