i dont know if this works on a Dodge pickup, but the same thing happened to my fathers Ford F250 and i was able to reach my hand through his grill (because im female and have small hands) and actually pull the primary release mecanism myself. my father on the other hand has to use a screwdriver as leverageto open it because his hands are too big to fit up there.

i a little bit at least!!

if your latch just broke, use a vice grip. if the cable itself has snapped, it gets tricker. my 2nd cutlass's cable snapped. i had to lift and jerk the hood manually until it came loose.

Depends on where it broke. Inside, you can get to the cable and pull the end with pliers. Half way, you should be able to reach the cable on the front of the radiator support, cut it and pull the cable. If the end at the latch broke, can you get the grill off and then take the latch loose or possible reach through with an extention and take the bolt out holding the latch.

A loose battery cable can cause no spark at the plugs, it can also cause your car not to start.Some newer cars need a min. 10 volts to run. Dirty cables can cause the same problem too.answerdefinetly yes a loose cable stops proper voltage getting to where it needs to be tighten cable and see if that fixes problem loose cable will also prevent proper recharging of battery

i had the same problem. the hood release is controlled by a cable. what i had to do was take off the cover by the driver side seat,grab the cable with a pair of vise gripps and pull the wire in the cable with a pair of pliers. it sounds crude but that's the only way to get the hood up. by the way,i would take it somewhere to get the cable's buried!!!!!

The cable is either broke or you may have a loose wire. The best way to handle this is to get a haynes manual from the parts store and read up on it.

first check your bulbs to see if they are loose or you might have some rust and its not getting agood connection,and check your fusible link,its tied into your positive battery cable.
