The hood latch is broken and I need to open hood - how do i do it?

If there is nothing left of the cable to grab with vise grips, you may have to remove the grille to get to the latch.

My 93 caravan the hood latch won't catch to keep the hood closed

Your hood latch probably isn't returning to the right position for it to catch. This is commonly caused by one of two problems: (1) too much hardened grease and crud on the latch itself is keeping it from operating freely; or (2) the hood release cable has gotten rusty or kinked over time and is no longer releasing completely.
I would suggest testing the hood release cable before doing anything else. It's an easy test and it only takes a minute. Enlist the help of a second person to pull the hood release lever while you look at the hood latch. When your helper pull on the release, you should see the cable pull part of the hood latch. When they let go, that part should swing back to its prior position. Using a long-shafted screwdriver, see whether you can "help" that moving part move any further on its return path. If you can push the latch any significant amount, it's not returning all the way to its proper position, and your hood release cable is probably binding.
In the short term, if you manually push the hood latch back into position, you should be able to close your hood again. However, you'll have to do this each time you open the hood. In addition, you run the risk that, not too far in the future, your hood release cable will actually completely bind or snap, and then you'll have a much harder time opening your hood to replace the cable (or do anything else, like add oil or washer fluid).

When i pull the latch to pop my hood, nothing happens. how can i get my hood open?

If the cable is not broken, it's most likely a rusty/gummed up latch mechanism. Get someone to assist you (a kid is fine) and have them pull the latch/handle and hold it in the "open" position. While they are doing that, jiggle the hood up and down as much as you can. It may end up popping open. This happens to my wife every spring after our nasty Minnesota winters. My 8 year old is an old pro at helping her get it open now. Then I end up cleaning and greasing the latch under the hood to resolve it. Yeah, if I greased it every couple months it wouldn't happen in the first place. At least that's what she yells at me. Haha.

Hood will not open due to the release lever on the inside on a 1993 dodge caravan tried pulling the cable but it still will not release the hood

Problem could be the other end of cable came loose from hood release latch under hood. You need to look through the grill closely and see if it did. I have had a few dodge caravans that this has happend to.

I have a 93 buick century and the hood latch cable broke how can i open the hood withoutit?

You have to start taking stuff apart to get to the hood latch. This might have to include removing body parts to get to the latch. You might be able t move the latch with a long long screw driver to pry it open. The latch itself . Do not try an pry the hood open you will only ruin the paint job and your screw driver.

Good luck
