Sometimes you can see the bolts hold the latch on and remove then with a 10 mm socket

I have the same car with the same problem. You have to hit the hood just to the right of the latch for it to pop open.

When i close my hood it latches but does not close. i bought a new and it still does not work. is there a fuse for it that i am missing

Check that the rubber buffers have not moved up causing the hood to not come down fully. Also check that the bullet shaped catch has not come loose and moved up, preventing it from catching on the latching lever. Have a look that the latching lever that is pulled by the cable from the cab has not stuck, although you did say that you replaced the latch.

Cannot open front hood

I own a 1994 Buick LeSabre and I recently experienced the same problem with my hood. When this happened to me I first made sure the hood is fully locked (meaning, I pushed down on the hood making sure it is locked), then I had another person get in the car releasing the hood latch while I was outside with my fingers under the hood pulling up. Once opened, be sure to lubricate the locking mechcanism and the spring and your hood release problem will disappear.

Please remember to rate this solution. Thanks!

Help please. The Hood Latch inside the van will not disengage, how can I open my Hood ?

This is a tough one but can be done, you will need to use a long screw driver and from under the van try to push on the release lever, this is the lever that the cable connects to to release the hood,you can also try from the grill area, this also depends on where the cable broke, or maybe the hood is just stuck, have somone pull up on the hood while you pull and release the hood cable this is to see if the latch is just sticking, hope this helps.

If the latch to open hood is not working, is there

If there is still resistance when you pull the lever then the cable is still connected.Try having someone with a open hand slap on the hood while you pull the lever.Try the corners and work your way to the center.If you do get it open lube all the latch parts.Well hope this helps and good luck.

'94 LeSabre hood stuck

I had the same problem, it is very common in this year and have to take off the grill and remove the locking latch from the hood. there is sill the hook that will hold the hood down. It just will not lock. You can then replace the whole locking mechanism because it is not fixable. You may also have to replace the handle because sometimes that breaks too, but thats an inexpensive fix.

Can't release hood latch

My 1999 LeSaber was having the same issue when I first bought it. My brother suggested I gently press and release on the hood after pulling the lever inside, this caused the latch to release. It stopped sticking after about 3-4 times of opening it this way. I suspect that some corrosion was jogged loose with the tapping.

Hope this helps.
