You'll need two people for this fix:
Have one person sit in the car and be ready to pull the release lever. Have the other person outside in front of the hood. Count to three together, and on "three", have the person outside push DOWN on the hood as hard as they can while the other person simultaneously pulls the release lever. Keep the release lever pulled as the person outside lets go of the hood. This may take several attempts to get the timing right. In this situation, what is usually happening is that the spring-loaded hood is pushing up against the release catch hard enough to stop it from moving when the lever is pulled. Pressing down on the hood relieves this tension just long enough for the catch to let go.

2005 quattro , battery is dead and hood wont release.Is it an elecrtonic release?


Heidi, No electric release. The latch is probably stuck. While you pull the interior hood release have an assistant push down and pull up repeatably/vigorously until hood releases from stuck position. Lube latch and cable before closing hood. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

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?

Safety catch on hood wont release and hood wont re latch!


I would check to see if the hood release moves when the inside lever is pulled then pushed, if not the cable and latch mechanism may need lubrication or be broken.

I need to open the hood but the battery is dead the hood rerlease latch doesn't work bease there is o power.


The hood release latch is not run by the battery. there will be a hood release at bottom left of steering wheel. may be two levers. one will be for the hood and the other may be for the fuel door. Your hood is definitely is not open with power. e7b4ea09-a41c-4b55-b94c-260b24f79b4e.png

Hood wont open


It may be that your hood release cable that runs from the hood release is broken. You'r going to have to try and manually release the hood latch by tripping the release through the grill with something like a long screwdriver. You should be able to identify the latch trigger by following the cable to end.
You might also try having push down on the hood while another person tries to trip the latch if the cable isn't broken, but just stuck.

Hood release inside my 2000 ford focus popped to release but I can not open the hood of the car? what should I do?


Might just be stuck. Have someone pull the release as you FIRMLY pound on the front of the hood in the middle with your fist (NOT A HAMMER ! ! ! !).

If that works and it opens, get some WD40 and spray the latch and cable, lever, etc... and then work the release lever before closing it again. If the cable has broken....... it is very difficult to release without some automotive knowledge. I'm betting it is just stuck...


Good Luck.

Broken hood release cable. How can I open the hood manually?


The cable is held in place by a metal bracket. If it cam off the bracket it won't work.

Look behind the part you pull and you will see the wire and the outer part of the cable. The end of the outer part of the cable has a groove neer the end. This groove slides onto a slot that is located just behind the pull latch. Once you see it it will make since on how it should go.

You can also grab the outer part of the cable and pull the inner wire. If you can pull the wire almost out, then it is broken. But the chances of that are very low.
