I recently fixed mine this week.

Cable won't retract.

Open the striker and shorten the small spring that's attached to the cable.

SOURCE: My 93 caravan the hood latch won't catch to

Your hood latch probably isn't returning to the right position for it to catch. This is commonly caused by one of two problems: (1) too much hardened grease and crud on the latch itself is keeping it from operating freely; or (2) the hood release cable has gotten rusty or kinked over time and is no longer releasing completely.
I would suggest testing the hood release cable before doing anything else. It's an easy test and it only takes a minute. Enlist the help of a second person to pull the hood release lever while you look at the hood latch. When your helper pull on the release, you should see the cable pull part of the hood latch. When they let go, that part should swing back to its prior position. Using a long-shafted screwdriver, see whether you can "help" that moving part move any further on its return path. If you can push the latch any significant amount, it's not returning all the way to its proper position, and your hood release cable is probably binding.
In the short term, if you manually push the hood latch back into position, you should be able to close your hood again. However, you'll have to do this each time you open the hood. In addition, you run the risk that, not too far in the future, your hood release cable will actually completely bind or snap, and then you'll have a much harder time opening your hood to replace the cable (or do anything else, like add oil or washer fluid).

Hood latch will not close.


if you look down into the latch with a flash light you should see the hood release cable. it will be attached to a lever. if the lever is stuck all the way to the drivers side than the latch is sticking. Spray some penetrating lube into the latch and then use a thin blade screwdriver to help push it the other way. Continue to spray lubricant, pull the hood release, and move the lever with a screwdriver until it moves freely.

My hood won't close all the way on my infinity g35


For anybody who finds themselves with this same problem currently: The male part of the catchers on either side (looks like a squarish loop) is adjustable. You might think this part is set right when fully tightened as it is attached to the hood by its ***** end. Its adjusted by either twisting it clockwise or counterclockwise. If you fully tighten them they wont reach the catch before the rubber bumber (right near the piece in question) hits where it rests. The bumpers are also adjustable and all these pieces can be used in conjunction to adjust where the hood sits on the grill side.

I have a 2003 Toyota corolla and my car won't


Same thing happened to me. Turned out to be a blown Alt fuse (under the hood behind the battery, you'll have to unbolt the whole fuse box though. That fuse is bolted in from underneath) and a blown am2 fuse (look underneath the dash of the driver side from inside the car). I switched those out and the car started right up

1995 Toyota Corolla Hood will not latch


Check that the catch that the release cable pulls on is returning freely to catch on the cone shaped bolt head that holds the hood closed. Try spraying it with something like WD-40 and move the lever to free it.

Where do I find the front hood release on the car?


Bottom left next to driver's door is the pull handle.
Reach under the hood (you may have to pry a bit to get your fingers in there, particularly if the hydraulic gas lifts are dead so the hood stays down), slightly down and right from center. There's a flat lever you'll push right to release the catch.
Have about a 4' stick handy to prop it up if the lifts are dead, and make sure it's someplace which won't slip, if you do that.
Lube the mechanism with light oil such as 3-in-1 while you're there, and replace the lifts if they won't hold the hood up, not a big deal to do or costly...

I have no power to several fuses on 01 ford expedition


Check in the high amp fuse box under the hood as one of those fuses may be blown causing no power to several accessories.
