There is a hood release to the left of your leg when you are sat in the drivers seat. Once you have pulled that, go around to the front of the car and put two fingers....face down....into the space between the hood and the grill. You should feel a little give...apply more pressure and pull up with your free hand.

I've noticed with some later model 2002's there has been a color indicator (either yellow or red) and you have to feel for that (The lever not color) and then push it left and pull up with the free hand. You should be able to look once you've 'popped' the hood whether or not there is a color there indicating the release for the rest of the hood.

When you open the hood for your engine compartment does the underhood light come on ? If not , it sounds like a dead battery or a poor cable connection to the battery

Pull the inside hood release and then go to the front of the Explorer and press down on the hood slightly while operating the auxillary hood release located just under the front edge of the hood at the center

Open hood, there will be 2 black metal slide locks in the back of the light assembly. After that, work the light assembly out the front, disconnect the plug and change out the light.

On the inside under the steering wheel there is a latch, then when it is poped up, to open it completely look under the hood and there is a lever just left of the center of the hood.

To open the hood on a 2002 Toyota Camry when the hood release cord is not working properly, jack up the car and use a long pole underneath to trip the hood latch. Replace or repair the cord before closing the hood.

The hood struts (aka lift supports) are shot. There is no tension adjustment. Your local auto parts store will sell you new struts for that vehicle for aprox $25 each. Just replace them and the hood will stay open for you.

when you open the rear hatch it is on the left side under a small square acess cover

On the Ford Explorer you pull the hood release inside the vehicle which causes the hood to pop up slightly. Then you reach in through the grill at the front of the Explorer, near the top of the grill just under the hood and slightly left of the center of the grill. Move the secondary catch lever to the right and lift the hood. If the hood won't open, a second person inside pulling on the hood release while the other person operates the secondary catch lever may be necessary if the latch needs to be lubricated.

The location of the fuse panel would depend on what the model year is of the Ford Explorer : ( from 1995 to 2001 , if you open the drivers door you will see a plastic fuse panel cover in the drivers end of the dash ) ( from 2002 and newer , on the Ford Explorer FOUR DOOR , the fuse panel is below the dash on the drivers side )
