New HeadlineI had the same problem on my 1994 Buick Century. It was the result of inadequate battery maintenance. My battery leaked and destroyed the sheathing on the hood release cable (which ran along side the battery tray). This damage added slack in the cable causing it to no longer relase the hood latch. I was able to disconnect the cable from release lever inside the passenger compartment and pull on the cable end with a vice grip enough so that the latch disengaged. This technique may help you before you have to resort to paying someone for help. Good luck.

Jam a screwdriver in horizontally at the latch until it wont go in anymore, then lift up the screwdriver and push it down while lifting up on the armrest. These armrests are junk, and it will break of completely. My advice: empty your belongings out of it and leave the stuck latch stuck with the arm rest permanently closed.

the hood latch is not releasing this could be due to a stuck/broken hood latch or something wrong with the release mechanism (broken/stuck cable, handle came off of cable, etc...) use screwdriver(s) through your grille to pull the lever that would be pulled from the cable. best thing to do is get a new hood latch from local parts store and look at it to figure out how it works so you know just what to press/pull/activate on the car -R.
