It may be accesable through the front grill. it will require a hook tool. try to look through the grill and find where the cable goes into the latch assembaly. it will require the you pull or push the latch twords the cable. then the hood should unlatch

I have a dead battery. I need to know how I can open the hood so I can get to the battery


If your cable is broken, not easy, so I assume you are pulling release and it is not opening hood, which is typical reason for not being able to open hood. You will need to identify where break is first, and this is the tough part, sometimes it is simply a stretched cable which happens before it snaps completely. You may have to trace cable to hood latch, you may have to cut cable to access inside wire and then use vise grips to release and then replace whole cable. FREE-PPV.com

The release for the hood latch will not unlock on my 2000 ford explorer. I have tried to pull the cable with pliers, but no luck.


Do you mean its detached from the cable? If so, see if you can reach the attachment point for the cable and pull in direction of the cable to release. If this is helpful a thumbs up or clicking helpful would be greatly appreciated. God Bless Y release-hood-latch-will-not-unlock-mi3qs3kfzvqijsqzkmg2vt51-3-0.jpg

How to open a broken hood latch on 2000 ford explorer


if it is broken from inside the cab, skin the cable housing until you get to the cable and grab it with pliers or vice grips and pull the release. If it is broken from the latch under the hood you are going to need to get to the latch and release it with something, anything that you can get in there and pull the release latch.

Broken hood release cable. Can't open hood


this is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.

Cannont open the Engine Compartment


I had the same problem with a 2000 MR2. I took the easy way out and opened it while the engine was cold and unbolted the latch mechanism, leavint the hood unlocked. It you want to keep the hood lockable, you might add a spacer to the cable between the cable sheath and the latch.
