SOURCE: The hood release lever does not release the hood.

Do you have a new cable?? If not most likely there is a need for it it may be stretched out. You can grab the end of the cable that goes to the release (in the interior) with a pliers and pull it this will finish the cable and a new one will most likely be needed

SOURCE: broken hood release cable. Can't open hood

this is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.

How far do we have to drive caravan to reset computer for inspection..


Your Dodge Grand Caravan, like all vehicles manufactured after 1996, has an on-board diagnostic system. When one of your Grand Caravan's sensors indicates that a system is not operating properly, it will trigger the vehicle's "check engine" light. Sometimes the cause of the error can be as simple as tightening a loose gas cap. In order to verify that the cause of the problem has been fixed, the computer on your Grand Caravan will need to be reset. This process is simple and takes less than 10 minutes.

I need to change the alternator on my 2000 dodge grand caravan sport. Can someone please tell me how to release tension on the serpentine belt? Thank You.


I have to use a 15mm open/closed end wrench on the tensioner pulley. Use the closed end of the 15mm and pull toward you and use the end of a cresent wrench to use for additional torque. You can slip the belt over the fixed pulley (not the tensioner pulley). Give yourself more room by not using the hood bar and use instead a broomstick on the right side to prop the hood open. I recommend a goodyear gator belt too. Good Luck, you'll need it with a caravan. Its on the left side. its the easyest pully to see.

Hood release


I had a '94 that some idiot at the oil change place left the dipstick laying on the top of the engine, which jammed the hood latch so it wouldn't open.

I happened to have the proper torx drivers for the grille to be removed and after that it wasn't much of a problem to release the latch.
