How can i open a hood laych that want let the hood cloes


Quite often the hood latch will not release for one of two reasons. Firstly, the latch is gummed up with old grease, and secondly the cable is kinked and does not release the latch. I is also possible that the latch is damaged, possibly at one time the hood was forced down at a slight angle which could damage the latch.
First, check the cable. Unhook the cable from the latch by pressing the latch back as far as possible with a tool and unhooking the cable. Let an assistant pull the hood release inside the vehicle and feel if the cable moves in freely and you can easily pull it back by hand. If not, replace the cable. Do NOT close the hood while you have the cable out!
Next, check the latch for free movement. If ally is well the only other problem is the bullet hook on the hood itself which may be either loose or adjusted in too far,

Hood won t close


Check out the cable connection between the latch and your internal latch control. Till you locate the problem I would suggest tying down the hood with some sort of strap so it does not pop open at speed.

You can adjust release on front brace by loosening bolts and setting it. I grease all my latches with moly grease. And lube cable under dash shield.

Ford Ranger 2007 hoodlatch only works if the vehicle is switched on...


You can add power by plugging a socket into your lighter hole and connect that to an external battery. I used the wiring of my "car vacuum cleaner" designed to work off the lighter. Connect, switsh ignition on and pull relese. There is enough power to activate latch.

Hood latch cable broken on 2001 cougar, unable to relese hood


first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.

Hood latch won't release hood. 91 volvo 240.


Have had same problem on 1990 240 DL. Go underneath, tap ball at end of hood latch sideways with small hammer (take a good look at it --- you should be able to see which way it needs to go to clear). Once released clean and lubricate.

HOOD RELEASE CABLE BROKE, HOW DO I OPEN HOOD?


After trying to pull the cable from under the hood and accidently working it loose from the latch, I had a mechanic come out to the vehicle, and he drilled two 3/4" holes that lined up with the latch mounting screws so that he could dismount the latch mechanism from the body of the Jeep. Then the whole latch assembly came loose with the hood. Next, he reattached the latch, and then attached a wire to the latch so that it can be pulled to work the mechanism without the old cable at all, though at the expense of security, because now it can be opened from outside the vehicle, but it's difficult to find unless you know what you're looking for. This might be a little more than most people are willing to do, but it worked for me.
