Question about Chevrolet Venture
You need to find where the front end of the cable attaches to the latch mechanism which may require removal of the plastic pan underneath behind the radiator. Once you find it you can manual pull it using needle nose pliers and a open end wrench or equal as fulcrum. Once you get it to pop then you can replace as needed.

SOURCE: hood release cable is broken
Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

SOURCE: Broken Hood Release
In short no there isn't, however it's most likely your plastic release lever is broken and not the metal cable, you need to open the cover over the release lever, there will be a cable you can pull using a gripper and it will release the bonnet, you can easily replace the plastic llever and it's reletively cheap.
Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

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.
