The hood release cable.
if the cable broke at the handle inside the car there will be a black cable with steel cable inside cut the black cable back so you see the steel cable get a par of visegrip pliers and pole the steel cable til the hood opens.
Hood release cable has connector nuts on both ends of the cable. Loosen the connector nuts. Remove the cable retainers. The cable will come off and can be replaced with a new hood release cable.
The hood release handle is connected to a cable. The cable runs to the front of the hood and connects to a catch. When the cable is pulled the catch releases the hood.
dodge truck broken hood latch
IF YOU REMOVE THE BATTERY YOU CAN SEE THE THE CABLE TAPE THE OLD TO THE NEW END AND PULL IT THROUGH
Had same problem today on 1993 Chevy truck. We cut black insulation around cable between hood release and wall in truck about 4 inches. Then pulled on cable and it opened hood.
I would trace cable and use vice grips. Cable is likely dealer only and expensive.IE: Find it and rig it!
The hood release cable is held in place by a retaining nut on each end of the cable. Remove the retaining nuts and the cable placement retainers. Reverse the process to install the new hood release cable.
cable broke release latch for the hood can't open it
1993-1997 you hook the cables to the battery. 1998-2004 you hook the cable to the jump start posts under the hood, passenger side.
Try using a coat hanger with the ends cut off and bend it into shape to get under the hood and pull the cable release.
Open the hood as far as you can then use a flat-blade screwdriver to pust the latch. Just remember to always carry the tool and a flashlight to locate the latch.
my 2001 does the same thing. its the spring in the latch release. I have to have my wife sit in the car and keep popping the hood release while i push in and up and down on the hood right where the latch release is over and over and eventually it gives. Once you get the hang of it you can do it by yourself.
1993 is OBDI not OBDII. The connector is under the hood, near the left hood hinge.
This can be rather tuff........you must grab the hood release cable from the underside of the vehicle. Sometimes, you can trip open the hood latch with a long screwdriver, if you know where to do it.
Our 2004 Saturn Vue hood release can be opened (if the cable is not broken) by disconnecting the cable from the back of the release lever, grabbing the ball on the end of the cable with some large pliers ("channel locks") and pulling hard. A metal "wire keeper" bracket clamped to the cable end under the hood to serve as a spacer and the release lever works.
To open the hood on the 2000 Beetle if the hood release lever is broken inside the car, you can remove the glove compartment of the vehicle and find the release cable inside the dashboard. Pull the cable to open the hood. You will then need to replace the hood release lever.?æ
The hood release cable is in the glove box in the upper right corner
If the cable broke at the pull under the dash, and it is still sticking out of the casing, behind the pull, you should be able to grab the end of the cable with a pair of plyers and give it a yank to pull the cable and open the hood. If it broke somewhere between the pull, inside the car, and the latch, under the hood, best bet would be if you can see under the front of the car and reach up, you can release it that way, by pulling on the cable.
my hood stuck on left side
