How do you open the hood if the interior hood release doesn't work?
Either get someone to pull and hold the hood release lever open or find some other means, like using the seatbelt, and then try pulling up on the hood. This should pop the hood, and then of course to fully open the hood you would need to find the release latch that is under the hood but above the grill, to the left of center. The hood release mechanism may be stuck or need some lube and a little working.

How do you open the hood on a 1993 sierra truck when hood latch is stuck?
First check to see that the hood is shut tight. then operate the hood release then go around to the front of the hood and give the nose of the hood a firm thump down with the side of your fist. Many times this will release the hood latch. Once open, lubricate the latch and stretch the pop up spring out a little with your hand.

How do you get the hood up on a Buick LeSabre when it will not release to the safety catch?
That depends on a few things. If the cable has broken at the release handle, you can use Vice Grips or pliers to grab the end of the cable and pull. If the hood is stuck down you can have a helper pull up on the hood while you work the release in the car. If the cable has broken at the latch consult a pro for help. If you get a helper to hold the the hood release open on the inside and tap lightly, with the side of your fist, on the front of your hood just above the grill. This will usually work if the cable is not broken.

How do you fix wipers on a 2004 Lexus es330 that won't tuck under hood?
There are two positions for the wipers on an ES330, winter and summer position. The summer position is down under the hood, and the winter position is where I imagine they are now. To switch between the two, just requires a push down to summer position, or a tug up to winter position. The idea between the two positions is that in winter, with snow on the car, the wipers won't get stuck underneath the hood, but during the summer, when that isn't a concern, they can be tucked out of the way for a cleaner look.

How do you open a stuck hood latch?
This happened to me on my 92 Caprice. I would pull the hood release and it would not pop up. What I did was to pull the release until I heard the click then pound on the hood right in front an uusually it would pop up at that point. I had it happen for about a year and then I cleaned all the release parts and lubricated them with white lithium grease. I suppose you could have a broken cable but that isn't as common. If it doesn't work opening it, get a friend to hold the release handle inside the car while you pound on it. VBD

The hood release on my 2003 Ford Taurus seems frozen it will not move at all how else can I open the hood?
Try pulling the hood release then going to the hood and pulling up on the hood by the edges. If it pops up manually then you can spray up the latch and mechanism real good and it should get better. If not then you will have to fish in the grill and try to release the latch. Also you may need to crank out the spring loaded hood supports on each side of the hood to add more pressure on the hood so when you release the hood it would pop open because of added pressure. Just a half turn on each one or so counter clockwise;
How do you open the hood on a 1995 Cutlass Supreme if the hood release wire is not working from within the car and you can see the hood latch under the hood but you can't get the hood up when you try?
How do you open the hood for a olds cutlass supreme with a hood latch that is stuck?
Find someone with a big strong hand. Pull hood release handle. If this does not open hood about one inch to allow opening it then on the front edge of the hood just left of center line rap hard on hood one time with your hand. This usually will cause the hood to pop up that one inch allowing you to open. If this doesn't work the first time try again. If you hit it too hard the hood may relock and you will have to pull the hood release handle again. Then, after opening the hood it's now time to lubricate the latch hinge and any metal part involved in opening the hood so you won't have this problem for a long while. Dealer explained release cable can break. Guide tube has to be cut to replace release cable.

Asked in Chevy Prizm
Why wont my hood stay closed?
I have a very similar problem. The latch the holds the hood closed sticks and actually the lever inside the car sticks in the open position as well.. To fix it, i just take a screw driver and pop the lever near the hood back into place. Up to this point any lubrication has not worked to have the lever run smoothly without getting stuck.
