Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse
This happened to my 2003 mitsubishi Galant... We wound up having to use some cable cutters and cut the cable, then pull the cable out through one of the grill slots, pull off the cover/sheath around the cable, and then we were able to pull the cable and release the latch. If it is already broken and you're going to have to replace it, then you're not hurting anything to cut the cable. Good luck to you.

It may be that your hood release cable that runs from the hood release is broken. You'r going to have to try and manually release the hood latch by tripping the release through the grill with something like a long screwdriver. You should be able to identify the latch trigger by following the cable to end.
You might also try having push down on the hood while another person tries to trip the latch if the cable isn't broken, but just stuck.
