If 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.

Replace the coil and still not getting fire what else can it be on 91 geo prism

91 is a corolla with 4AFE TOY ENGINE,! and is same Car.
no spark in all 5 places 4 spark plugs and COIL Center tower?
I'll assume the coil is dead. no high voltage spark at center.
lots ,ill list them all
  1. fuses, check all fuses in both boxes.
  2. is CEL lamp glowing key on, if not ECU has no power is is dead.
  3. insert diagostic jumper? crank for 5 seconds, release key is CEL flashing DTC errors> if yes, BINGO ! CMP fails?
  4. is the cam spinning (belt snapped) if the cam is dead there will be no spark. so do the belt service per FSM rules.
  5. is the DTC ERROR, FOR SPARK, That means the ignitor is dead. so.... use the jumpers

the Jumper
just short Te1 and e1 with a paper clip
google toyota jumper TE1
and read.

this page cover all years, and DLC movements
musical DLCs. if you were.

answer if all 5 places, dead. this speaks VOLUMES
after all if cam slips , rotor is off an sparks go dead but coil
not deadl.
but if belt SNAPS all 5 go dead because CMP goes dead.
this how all efi works.
but on very early engines, the distributor is more stand alone.

Hoodlatch is doesn't stay shut for Toyota Corolla 1993

Before you replace it, are you sure that it is broken? Most of the time, the release mechanism rusts, and sticks in the "open Position". Spray it down with WD-40, and look at the latch closely. Look at the driver side, and see if the release cable is retracted. Using a long screwdriver, pry the release cable back out. It just may be seized up.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice.
