This is tough. I had this problem once when my cable was sticking. What I had to do was take a really slender flat blade screwdriver, crawl on my back under the car and reach straight up past the radiator. There's a spot where you can fish the screwdriver in and twist and the hood will pop. I did it once, and I know that the directions aren't that hot, but I got it to work. Wish I could help more.
I looked at my Camaro and the cable runs behind the high beam on driver side might be able to get access there if not broke to close to the latch. Other answer is good also . good luck.
It depends which cable is broken. If the main cable is broken under the truck, the brakes should release on their own. If the brakes dont release, the cables are frozen from rust and need to be replaced. If the release cable from the handle to pedal assemdly is broken reach under the dash above the pedal and find the small release arm. Pull the arm toward you [ the rear of vehicle ] and the emergency brake pedal will release.
This depends on where it snapped, but usally it breaks inside the car, where it connects to the latch release, anyway you have to fish for the cable itself thru your grille, use a wire hanger bent back at the end about a 1/2", hook the cable closest to the latch itself, attach the hanger to the wire, not the sheath, and pull
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.
This is what I did with my 79 Chevy Malibu when the release handle broke off (the little cable it was attached to broke).I found out that the "cable" that broke off in my hand when I pulled the release, wasn't the actual parking brake cable, it was just the release cable. It is only a few inches long and it does attach to the brake mechanism under the dash but it's not the actual brake cable.So i looked way under the left lower dash to see how the parking brake pedal was connected, and carefully tried a few things to see if i could pull on it and make it disengage. Yes there was a little metal part close to the pedal arm base, that is about 1/2 inch rectangle sticking out to the side. it has a little slit in the center of it, maybe that is where the release cable used to go. So when I pulled back on that little half- inch rectangle, it did release the brake pedal. Then I was able to drive.So if anybody thinks your emergency brake won't work when the release cable breaks off in your hand, that may not be factual. You might still have the parking brake, just need to replace the handle and the little short release cable for the interior of the car. So you can RELEASE the brake in the normal way. But please check it out really well to find out for sure!
parking brake is held on by a ratchet inside the car, ,so if the cable is broken your brakes will not be locked onif they are, you have more than a broken cable problem.--------------I beg to differ. It may be that it's only the release cable that is broken. This was the case in my older (79) Chevy Malibu. It wasn't the actual brake cable that broke. So my parking brake was stuck on. Ok then i did find a little lever part that i could pull back on beneath the dash, it was sort of connected to the parking brake pedal base. Look underneath the dash by the ebrake pedal, see if you can trace the route from the release handle to where its little pull cable might attach. That is the point where you would want to pull back to release the pedal. it worked for me, but of course it's a different type of Chevy. Just be careful as those moving parts will then release and you want to keep your fingers safe.--purry1
