have someone stand in the front of the truck and listen for the release to pop. cable may be broken or release could be rusted. verify at the release handle that cable hasnt broken off behind it. if it has came off the handle use a pair of pliers to pull the cable.
you can use needle nose pliers pull the hood release cable on inside car where cable broke from handle.needle nose pliers will help you enough to pull cable to open hood so you can replace fix hood release handle and cable.
Sounds like the cable is broken. Try having someone put pressure on the hood while you pull on the hood handle in your vehicle. If this doesn't work you'll have to have your helper bang on the hood while you pull the handle. It might also be a spring broken in the hood latch either first or secondary latch. The latch is usually bolted to the front of the radiator facing the grill. If you can get something in there to release the first latch you can move the hook with you fingers. Be careful prying it open. You don't want to dent the hood.
can you reach the cable itself?,or is it broke at the hood latch?IF its not broken at the outside latch, try to follow the cable,un-hook it from the handle and pull on the wire cable to open it.IF its broken at the latch itself,you are going to have to reach the latch through the grille and try to pull the lever the cable connects to.That part is no fun at all..!!
