SOURCE: 2001 Jeep Cherokee: Passanger side hood latch is stuck

try pushing down on that side of the hood when you pull the lever (takes 2 people, or 1 with 4 9ft long arms). Keep holding the lever while you release the center latch and lift the hood. I can't promise it'll work, but it usually does. sometimes you have to play with it a while.

SOURCE: 96 jeep Grand Cherokee tailgate will not open

This is kind of tricky. OK let's start, you have to crawl into the rear hatch area from the inside of the car. You'll have to pull the rear panel off the hatch, a screwdriver between the panel and hatch near the window will work. There might be 2 screws on the panel you could take out. The trick is to pull the panel far away enough to stick your arm down towards the latch and release it by hand. We did this at the dealer all the time.

SOURCE: 2000 jeep cherokee 4wd hood latch system broken - how do I open

It can be a pain, even for a skill mechanic, BUT you have to get under and trip the leaver or sometime if the cable broke on the inside you can strip the cable shroud and use plyers to pull the cable

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Hood will not lock


Sounds like the cable or the latch is stuck. The latch may need to be oiled. When someone pulls the handle under the dash, you should be able to watch the latch move back and forth.

Cherokee 1998 hood latch won't open.cable frozen ?


frozen or broken. try a good whack on front on hood while someone pulls latch, see if you can free it up. no luck? try pounding at driver's side near the windshield while someone pulls latch. no luck? You can crawl under front with a screwdriver and reach up and try to release the latch manually. push the little lever the cable attaches to over towards driver's side. good luck. When open, see if cable operates latch: if good spray it liberally with penetrant. If your cable is broken, just get a new one or visit a salvage yard. The hood latch can be adjusted a small amount.

95 cherokee, the hood wont open with pull cable, the cable is not broken, but the latch seems to be broken. how to open?


try having someone pull the release and someone else give a quick bounce to the leading edge of the hood. If it opens, use plenty of solvent on the latch mechanism and work it till it's free.

The hood release not working


It could be the release latch is stuck. Find someone to pull the release lever while you firmly press down on the center of the hood just above the front grill. Be careful not to dent the hood. Just give it a few firm shoves repeatedly while your friend pulls on the lever. If it opens, spray the latch with some loose-nut spray while pulling the release cable a few times.

Good luck.

Hood release


I had the same problem with WD-40 and man power I over came it. Chances are your latch is rusting / corroded or gummed up. What I did was to lift the passenger side up a little not to much or you will bend the hood, follow the bar as far as you can and spray the release with WD-40. Have someone pull the cable and try moving the release bar on the passengers side back and forth. It may take a little doing but it should eventually release. You know the cable isn't broken because it does release the passengers side, when you finally get the hood open make sure you spray down all three of the latches.
