Question about 2006 Hyundai Accent

Open Question

The hood release cable in my 2006 Hyundai Accent broke. I think it broke at the latch under the hood, and I was told that in this car it is in an unusual and unreachable location from under the car. My car is in need of oil desperately and I need the hood released! I appreciate any help I can get :) -Julian

SOURCE: hood release cable is broken

Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

SOURCE: under the hood, the reservoirs.

If your vehicle is a stick shift, likely it's the master cylinder for the clutch. stick your finger in there and see if it smells and feels the same as what's in the brake master. If it appears low, check where the clutch rod goes into it in the drivers side of the firewall. If you find some fluid there its leaking. (also check line and slave cylinder that works the clutch) Could also be steering fluid but I've never seen them put that there.

I can't get the hood release cable to work so I can raise the hood on a 07 Hyundai accent.

First thing to do is press down on the hood with both hands on the front near the center. This is to see if the latch or hood is just stuck, If the cable release is broken, then it becomes a huge job and depending on the car, you have to get under it and remove any covers between the frame and the grill and see if you can reach the latch, on some cars you can take the front wheel off and reach the latch. Look through the grill etc. You make have to unbolt the latch or use a wire hooked to the lever, if none of that works you can take the car to a body shop as opposed to a general mechanic because they are cheaper.

How do i open the hood manually the latch is broken. i have a black covered cable wire and the silver part of the wire is showing. i pull the latch nothing happens to release the hood

OK, if the cable is the part that broke AND it broke at the handle, then you can use a pliers or vise grip to grab the end and pull on it to pop the hood, if it broke somewhere inside the cable, then you will need some needle nosed pliers to reach under the hood and grab it there. if it broke off at the hood latch itself, then you will need to get/ make a hook or pushing rod to engage the mechanism directly to release the latch and then replace the cable the latch looks like this:

How to open hood on 06 hyundai sonata after cable broke

ya i recently had my battery go bad on me. 06 sonata is @ 58k. previous to the battery issue had noted as irritating and strange as it is that my hood latch was not releasing, so after a tow to the shop and a 3 day and labor was over$500. the very nxt week even tho i asked them to take a look as id had the ESC off light illuminiate vry sporadically recently. was "noted and light is off now" by the shop. 3 days out of shop light on again....back in shop a week after first. now i'm being told the entire ESC electronics system needs to be replaced at just under $600. i am starting to suspect i shud have gone w a honda.

How open the hood. The interior hood release handle won't pop the hood.

I'm taking a guess that the cable your referring to is the cable inside the car, 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 mechanism same as if you pulled the latch, otherwise if you can't see the cable within, crawl under the front of the car, between the radiator and grill, reach up to the latch and disconnect the cable that comes from the inside of the car, 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 driver 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 don't give you much room to work with, but a little patience will pay off with this , wish you the best of luck!

Thanks for using FixYa!

The hood latch will not realese on my 06 hyundai sonata

the cable is probably pinched or ceased in its cover, you will probably have to replace the cable, as to getting the hood open, you can try reaching up from under the car and pulling on the cable right at the latch, but you should probably get a mechanic to do it because if they break anything that isnt broke, its on them to replace it.

190d hood can`t open!

Look at the little opening just to the left and down a little from the Mercedes emblem on the grille.  There used to be a latch there.  If the latch is missing, you can run a wire through the opening and attach to the hood release mechanism so that you can pull it to open the hood (that is of course after you pull the hood release which is located under the dash on driver side left.
