If it broke at the dash,cut the cable housing down to get to the cable and pull on it with pliers,
if it broke at the latch you can still open it you will need two long skinny screwdrivers and patients

You may need a professional to get this hood open, and it will likely need to be on a car lift. Try this if you are handy, try removing the driver side fender well liner for access to the latch.

Cannot open front hood


I own a 1994 Buick LeSabre and I recently experienced the same problem with my hood. When this happened to me I first made sure the hood is fully locked (meaning, I pushed down on the hood making sure it is locked), then I had another person get in the car releasing the hood latch while I was outside with my fingers under the hood pulling up. Once opened, be sure to lubricate the locking mechcanism and the spring and your hood release problem will disappear.

Please remember to rate this solution. Thanks!

My 1990 buick lesabre also has a heater blower problem and I have made it work in the past by pulling apart the connector near the blower under the hood and cleaning the connector. This time I can not open...


try reaching the hood latch mechanism thru the grille, or from under the car behind the front bumper with a long screwdriver or long pliers, or a piece of coat hanger or whatever.
