Oddly enough had this same problem with my car a few years ago. there are a few ways to try it. first pull the hood release and then smack the hood close to the cab (somewhere close to the center) that can release the hood clamp and it may pop up. or you can pull and hold the hood release lever and have a friend smack the top of your hood (while standing in front of the jeep) if these dont work you have to either go under the jeep or through the grille and maually pull the cord that is in the hood latch to open it. then replace the cord. however if the smack technique works just leave the hood open and find the rubber hood stems (theyre the little rubber tipped screw looking things in the front corners of your engine compartment that connects with the hood) and screw them a little to where they raise a couple mm. when screwed up a little they should give the hood enough pressure to pop open when you pull the release lever. long enough for you to tighten the wire connected to the hood release or replace it all together

95 cherokee, the hood wont open with pull cable, the cable is not broken, but the latch seems to be broken. how to open?


try having someone pull the release and someone else give a quick bounce to the leading edge of the hood. If it opens, use plenty of solvent on the latch mechanism and work it till it's free.

The hood release not working


It could be the release latch is stuck. Find someone to pull the release lever while you firmly press down on the center of the hood just above the front grill. Be careful not to dent the hood. Just give it a few firm shoves repeatedly while your friend pulls on the lever. If it opens, spray the latch with some loose-nut spray while pulling the release cable a few times.

Good luck.

The hood release cable is stretched out on my jeep cherokee sport, I can not open the hood. Is there another way to open it ?


If it's actually just stretched out you should be able to grab the cable behind the pull release, and using pliers, pull it far enough to release the latch.

I have a 95 Jeep Cherokee, the hood release cable is broken..help


HALLO
TRY WITH SOME HARD WIRE (WELDING WIRE) ABOUT 3MM THICK.
MAKE HOOK ON ONE END (5MM), AND IN THE MIDDLE, JUST UNDER THE HOOD,BETWIN HOOD AND FRONT GRILL, IN THE GAP YOU WILL SEE HOOD LOCK. IN THIS LOCK YOU WILL SEE SMAL HOLE. GO INSIDE WITH THE WIRE AND TURN IT (TRY LEFT OR RIGHT (DONT REMEMBER)), BUT HOOD WILL OPEN. HEPENED TO ME TOO TWO YEARS AGO.

My hood will not open on my 1999 jeep cherokee i have pullrd the grill ,etc. what should i do ?


Is the release or cable broken? If not, have someone pull on it and give a quick "bounce" (forceful, but not so much you cause damage) pushing down on leading edge of hood. Usually this will free it up.
