Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer
If the lever broke then get a pair of pliers and go to where your hood release lever is and see if you can located where the wire is that is routed from the there to the front of the hood. Then that way you can manually release it. If there is no visible brake cable anywhere then you best chance is to reach with your hands or pliers as well if they fit under the hood to there the hood release lever is and try and pull the wire from there. All in all if none of that works then your best bet is the dealorship.
Hope this Helps!

SOURCE: Hood Won't Open, and Lever Broke
Hi viper852004 , the only way you can do this is to remove the front grills and then you will be able to see the 2 sprung bonnet pegs, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut where it screws into the hood and unscrew it until it becomes unattatched from the hood, do this for both pegs and then you should be able to release the hood to fix the problem. the pegs will need to be reinstalled before driving the car as the hood will not close, hope this is of some help, regards mark.

the outer cable may have come loose near the lock, if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille and you will have access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lock lever aside to unlock the bonnet

The best solution I've come across is a coat hanger used to pull on the cable from under the hood to get the latch to release. You can either place it through the grill or if there's room, just under the hood. Best of luck.

Locate the interior hood-release lever under the dashboard on the driver's side of the interior of the car.
Lift up and toward you on the hood release lever. The lever is connected to a cable that releases the hood. The hood will pop up about 1/2 inch when you pull the lever.
Move to the front of the car and locate the exterior hood-release lever under the front of the hood. It is located near the middle of the vehicle, just beyond where the front edge of the hood meets the body. Lift up on the inner lever.
Lift up on the edge of the hood while holding the inner lever in place. When the hood is up, find the hood prop and raise it, setting its tip in the hood-prop mount on the hood, to hold the hood up while you work in the engine bay.
