Replace hood release cable or lubricate the cable to free it up.
In the mean time, push the cable back in and see if that helps.

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.

So my hood latch wont latc the hood when the hood is closed and im worried it will come up and hit my windshield so i have it bungeed cord how can i fix this


check the cable that runs from the passenger compartment out to the hood. if it is stuck pulled out the it will hold the latch in released position. look down at the latch and you will see the cable . use a screw driver to work the cable and see if it is working freely. if not replace it and happy motoring.. another thing ot check if it is working properly is the latch adjustment. if it somehow got pushed down it wont be able to close around the hood bar and hold it. you should hear that click when it closes. simple fix is to loosen the bolts and raise it up a little and tighten it back up.

Pulled latch, but hood won't open on 97 dodge ram van


If you pull out on hood release & it feels like some resistance cable is not broken. Have someone pull release & hold pulled outward while you hit the front of the hood near grill, with palms of your hands. If it releases upward, release 2nd catch. Raise hood & locate plastic or rubber hood stops. There is one on each side of hood screwed into radiator core support. Raise each one an even full turn. This will allow it to release properly.

Pull the release while helper presses down then lifts on hood. If it opens , lubricate the latch assembly before you close it again.
