Hi

Sometimes it’s an issue of lubrication problem. Spraying down the latch assembly and the cable, if accessible, with WD-40 always made the problem go away. You may have to do it several times and wait while the lube seeps into the mechanism. The latch assembly should be right in front of the radiator. Cables can be tough to lubricate if they are inside a rubber or plastic guide but you can usually shoot lube in at one or both ends. Work the latch and cable manually to free them up.

Please check the bellow link and read the article related to your problem….

From under front of vehicle, lay under hood and remove the hood latch with a long extension and rachet. This works on most vehicles. God-Bless!

Safety catch on hood wont release and hood wont re latch!


I would check to see if the hood release moves when the inside lever is pulled then pushed, if not the cable and latch mechanism may need lubrication or be broken.

Hood latch


Replace the hood release cable as it is probably jammed and not allowing the hood latch to return to the correct position

Engine hood wont open hood pull handle pulls out but wont release


Try pulling on the hood release, while someone else lifts the hood. If this doesn't work. You can access the underside of the hood release by taking the front grille out. If you look closely you'll see the retainer screws that can be removed from the front. Once the grille is out or loosened enougt to get your hand in behind, you can release the hood latch from the underside with a screwdriver and then repair the hood latch after you've opened it.

Hood wont close


the alignment must be off...are all the seams on the side equal?
Has someone sat on or bumped the hood?  Can you see what's hitting?  Is the hood pin going into the hood latch?  Has someone played with the latch while the hood is up and it's not in position to receive the latch pin?
