Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Very common problem with the dodges, look under your dash and you will see where the probably now broken cable use to connect. You can pull it by hand to release the hood, They are not hard to replace, just unbolt the handle unit and bolt in the new one. The cable usually just snaps into a holder on the bracket under the dash. Some if these vehicles came with the hood cable that goes all the way to the hood release latch under the hood if that is the case you can still open the hood you just have to do it from under the car in the front. Hope this helped

SOURCE: Hood Latch Wire ???
I had the same problem on mine. You can get to the latch from underneath right behind the bumper. You will need a long screw driver or pry bar to push the tab that the cable connects to. On mine I had to have someone push down on the hood slightly while I pushed the tab.

SOURCE: hood release wont latch
This maybe a problem of the hood being misaligned. in order to remedy this you will have to adjust the 4 bolts on the hinges holding the hood in place and the latch little by little. But first try a penetrating oil on the latch assembly and look for anything out of place.
