Try spraying the latch mechanism with WD-40 or similar light oil and operating the release cable a number of times. Check the condition of the release cable if nothing happens. The latch itself may have a broken spring due to the low temps.

You can try going up from the bottom behind the bumper cover, otherwise you may have to get a body shop to remove the front cover to get access to the latch.

Hood latch will not close all the way


Hi,

Grab a flashlight and a long screwdriver and peer straight down into the hood latch. You should see the end of the hood cable, it's looped in to a metal bracket. Have a helper pull and let go the hood release cable from inside the car, this cable should move to the when pulled, and return when released.

If it doesn't return, the cable is stretched, or a spring is broken from the cable assembly. Here's a quick fix:

Facing the car and using the screwdriver, push the bracket to your left as far as you can. This resets the latch. Drop the hood from about 2-3 feet above the latch. You need to close it with a bit of speed or the release mechanism will just move. It might take a few times of moving the cable and dropping the hood to get it to latch.

Permanent fix is to replace the cable.

The primary hood latch for my 1998 Chevy Astro Van does not work, how can I open my hood?


My '02 astro van hood latch used to stick shut also. I was able to open it by having a friend operate the pull handle under the dash while I picked up on the hood. After I got it open I used some cleaner to degrease the latch mechanism and lubed it all with a good penetrating oil. It's worked like new ever since. I suspect I'll have to relube it every once and a while just to keep it working like new, after all it's a moving mechanical part.

Have a 1999 chevy venture van and the hood won't pop. It's going to the dump and the battery is dead so I can't start it. Can you pop it open from the front and if so how?


Well you can have someone else help you as their working the hood latch in and out you get on the outside and gently tap on the hood right at the front of the car where the release is. This should work it usually does anyway. Once it releases use some liquid wrench or wd-40 on the release mecanism. Lubricate it up well.

Radio, Key auto door lock/opener, interior lights not working.


Most likely is a fuse. There is a fuse box at the end of the right side of the dash. Open front passenger door and there is a cover that says fuses on the end of dash. There is also a fuse box located under the hood at the right front of engine compartment. It should have a cover with a round knob in the middle of it .Unscrew the knob to remove cover.

First thing to do would be to lubricate it well & work it with a screwdriver or similar, as well as cable where its attached to mechanism, it may not have snapped back to latch position yet.

2003 toyota sienna lift door knob broken. how to open the ldoor


The handle that broke had a little 'finger' that actuated the release mechanism. The only way to open the back hatch is to remove the inner panel and push on the release mechanism.

Once off, you can either a) buy a replacement handle (expensive) or b) do what I did and simply make a piece of L-shaped metal to lever the release mechanism from the outside.

If your handle is completely off of the door you can look up under the little plastic cover (that hides the handle) and see the slot on the right side that the release handle inserts into. You need to stick the lever into that slot, and angle it down about 30 degrees from horizontal to get under the latch mechanism, which unlocks the hatch if you pry it upwards.

Hood latch not staying shut.


as far as i can find out no recall on hood latch. you can check with chevy they may have not listed it publicly.
it could have been caused by the latch mechanism slipping a little out of position and not latching completely. check it for allignment upon closing after repair.
