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!!

Depends on where it broke. Inside, you can get to the cable and pull the end with pliers.

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.

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!!!!!
