SOURCE: 1998 gmc k2500 5.7l hood release cable stretched.

You can temporarily fix this if this solution will work:
disassemble the hood release in the cabin and pull the cable until the hood latch opens. Then you can remove or adjust the cable as necessary.

You need to bend a hook in a coat hanger and then try to snag the cable end from the front of the truck,just below the hood.If you know someone who's truck you can look at[any chev or gmc truck] it will be easier for you to figure out.You may possibly have enough cable left inside the truck to get a pair of vise grips on,that would be easier.

Try smacking down on the hood with a open hand.You may want to have someone inside to pull the lever while you hit on the hood.If you do get it open spray everthing down with a good lubicant.Well good luck and hope this helped.

Remove the cable from the latch and any hold downs or clamps. Push the rubber gromet through the fire wall into the car. Remove the handel assy. and pull
the cable assy.out through the fire wall. Now, if the
gromet can be removed. You can decide if you wan't
to put it back from under the dash, or under the hood.
Whatever is easiest for you, but if it can't, it has to go
back from under the dash. Hope this helps.
Good luck.

SOURCE: broken hood release cable. Can't open hood

this is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.

2005 quattro , battery is dead and hood wont release.Is it an elecrtonic release?


Heidi, No electric release. The latch is probably stuck. While you pull the interior hood release have an assistant push down and pull up repeatably/vigorously until hood releases from stuck position. Lube latch and cable before closing hood. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My 2004 Lexus GX 470 has a stuck hood and the battery is dead. I can hear a clicking noise when I pull the hood release lever but still hood is stuck shut. Does anyone have any ideas?


Have someone pull the hood release for you, and you bang the hood several times with your fist...if this works lubricate your hood lock before you close it.

Open stuck hood latch


probably find that the bonnet release cable is kinked and jammed in the open position or the return spring on the catch has fallen off and not pulling the cable back

Hood will not shut


If you mean the hood will not lock down in a closed position the following applies.
It can be due to a stuck hood release cable or latch pivot that is out of sequence. With the cable problem, the cable remains pulled back in an OPEN position and the latch pivot will remain in an unlock position under the hood. For the latch pivot, the pivot has a V notch and is suppose to lay in an open position in order for the hood striker to trip it into a locked position. You may not be lined up, basically the pivot is flipped into a closed position and the striker hits its' top instead of its' V slot.

Rust or a broken pivot return spring can be the causes for this defect.

If you mean the hood will not move down from an open position, then that is a different problem. The small lift cylinders on each side of the hood may be jammed. Or the hood hinge could be defective. Be careful, some hoods are made of aluminum and bend easily if forced.

The hood release cable on my 2003 Yukon SLT will not allow the hood to latch, is it broken?


The lever on the latch assembly (the one that gets pulled by the cable) is stuck. Happens all the time.....All you have to do is lube the hood latch assembly with some WD-40 or Sea Foam or a similar lubricant. Sometimes you can see the lever and move it back and forth a few times by reaching in with a screwdriver. Then close and open the hood a few times just to make sure everything is loosened up.
