Question about 1996 Dodge Ram
So how does the shop get the hood open?
Posted on Oct 17, 2008
This is the hard case for any hood broke the cable, if the broken part is under neith your dash board, near the handle, probably you can manage to pull the broke cable and try to open it. but if the broken part in the front hood, probably you have to take to the garage to fix it.
I had two cases like this when I had my Union 76 Services Station in N. Hollywood 80s, it is a headache problem.

im taking a guess that the inside latch your refering to is the latch inside the cab of the truck, if so inspect the cable, can you see the metal cable inside the black housing, if you do take a vice grips and grab onto tightly and pull, this should release the mechinism same as if you pulled the latch, otherwise if you can see the cable within, crawl under the front of the truck, between the radiator and grill, reach up to the latch and disconect the cable that comes from the cab, it will be the only cable coming to the latch assembly, as you remove it, it kind of just clips in place, you will see what it pulls to release the latch, grab a screw drived and lightly force the piece over to pop the hood, i know it can be frustrating from experience, took me a while the first time, and they sure dont give you much room to work with, but a little patience will pay off with this , wish you the best of luck!

You might have to break the grille. But try getting a long screw driver in there to trip the latch.
