I had the same problem on mine. You can get to the latch from underneath right behind the bumper. You will need a long screw driver or pry bar to push the tab that the cable connects to. On mine I had to have someone push down on the hood slightly while I pushed the tab.

How do I open the hood on my car if the release latch in the car breaks and it won't release when I pull on the cable under the kick panel with a pliers?


Depending upon how your Dodge was constructed, it may be necessary to access the latch from underneath. A straightened wire coat hanger is a useful substitute for the release cable. You will need a bright light source to find where to hook the hanger and pull. Someone will have to press down on the hood to release latch tension and allow release.

You can use a some pliers and aluminum wire to open a car hood if the latch is broken. You will also need a light to shine towards the latch. Try to connect the wire around the latch that will release the hook for the hood.

2001 dodge viper,how do you open hood ,is there more than one latch,released front latch and i know it opns by windshield,but afraid to try as it seems tight


You have your first hood release inside the car and at the front of the car you have to lift the hood a bit to release the emergency latch. The hood should now open. Don't forget that the hood opens from the windshield side of the hood.

My 1998 Intrepid has a broken hood latch. When I pull on the inside latch, nothing happens. How can I open my hood, and fix this problem for the future ?


can you grab a piece of the cable from under dash?if so pull it and see if it will open.
if not you will have to try to get at latch from under car.
if you cant get at it find a reasonably priced body shop they are pros at getting stuff like that open
then get a new cable or pull handle or latch whichever it needs and replace it

1996 dodge intrepid hood latch won't release


Very common problem with the dodges, look under your dash and you will see where the probably now broken cable use to connect. You can pull it by hand to release the hood, They are not hard to replace, just unbolt the handle unit and bolt in the new one. The cable usually just snaps into a holder on the bracket under the dash. Some if these vehicles came with the hood cable that goes all the way to the hood release latch under the hood if that is the case you can still open the hood you just have to do it from under the car in the front. Hope this helped

Hood wont open on 1999 dodge durango


The cable to the hood is most likely broken. The hood can be opened from underneath by pulling the cable and replacement is not terribly difficult once the hood is open.

I have a 93 buick century and the hood latch cable broke how can i open the hood withoutit?


You have to start taking stuff apart to get to the hood latch. This might have to include removing body parts to get to the latch. You might be able t move the latch with a long long screw driver to pry it open. The latch itself . Do not try an pry the hood open you will only ruin the paint job and your screw driver.

Good luck
