If when you pull the hood release, the hood doesn't pop up, have an assistant lift the hood while you're pulling the cable release. If this isn't helping, you can remove the grille out of the grille surround... look for attachment screws.. once the grille is out, you should be able to release the hood latch from the underside with a screwdriver.

From under front of vehicle, lay under hood and remove the hood latch with a long extension and rachet. This works on most vehicles. God-Bless!

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.

Engine hood wont open hood pull handle pulls out but wont release


Try pulling on the hood release, while someone else lifts the hood. If this doesn't work. You can access the underside of the hood release by taking the front grille out. If you look closely you'll see the retainer screws that can be removed from the front. Once the grille is out or loosened enougt to get your hand in behind, you can release the hood latch from the underside with a screwdriver and then repair the hood latch after you've opened it.

Hood wont open on 1999 dodge durango


The cable to the hood is most likely broken. The hood can be opened from underneath by pulling the cable and replacement is not terribly difficult once the hood is open.

Your cable anchor that holds the cable is loose or is pivoting causing your latch not to have full stroke. Hope this fixes your problem.
