You can temporarily fix this if this solution will work:
disassemble the hood release in the cabin and pull the cable until the hood latch opens. Then you can remove or adjust the cable as necessary.

SOURCE: 2001 GMC Jimmy question. My hood release cable

You need to bend a hook in a coat hanger and then try to snag the cable end from the front of the truck,just below the hood.If you know someone who's truck you can look at[any chev or gmc truck] it will be easier for you to figure out.You may possibly have enough cable left inside the truck to get a pair of vise grips on,that would be easier.

Try smacking down on the hood with a open hand.You may want to have someone inside to pull the lever while you hit on the hood.If you do get it open spray everthing down with a good lubicant.Well good luck and hope this helped.

Remove the cable from the latch and any hold downs or clamps. Push the rubber gromet through the fire wall into the car. Remove the handel assy. and pull
the cable assy.out through the fire wall. Now, if the
gromet can be removed. You can decide if you wan't
to put it back from under the dash, or under the hood.
Whatever is easiest for you, but if it can't, it has to go
back from under the dash. Hope this helps.
Good luck.

SOURCE: broken hood release cable. Can't open hood

this is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.

The hood release cable on my 2003 Yukon SLT will not allow the hood to latch, is it broken?


The lever on the latch assembly (the one that gets pulled by the cable) is stuck. Happens all the time.....All you have to do is lube the hood latch assembly with some WD-40 or Sea Foam or a similar lubricant. Sometimes you can see the lever and move it back and forth a few times by reaching in with a screwdriver. Then close and open the hood a few times just to make sure everything is loosened up.

My hood will not open. When I pull on the hood release lever I hear a popping noise as if the hood releases but it doesn't.


first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.
