Should be a release lever on the underside of the dash to the left of the steering wheel. It should be flush with the panel, so you might have to feel around for it. Hope that helps...!

1995 lexus ls400 can't lock hood

Could be that the latch is already latched, or just needs a little lube (wd-40 works great) Have someone pull the hood release and look at the latch see if it moves or if it look to be closed you can ulatch it with a pen or pencil while someone pulls the hood release if that is the case.
