Question about Hyundai Cars & Trucks
More info needed but if part of the cable is showing grasp the cable with vise grips and pull. If the cable moves and hood does not open you can go through the front grill area and find lever to hood latch or cable and try to open it that way

the cable is probably pinched or ceased in its cover, you will probably have to replace the cable, as to getting the hood open, you can try reaching up from under the car and pulling on the cable right at the latch, but you should probably get a mechanic to do it because if they break anything that isnt broke, its on them to replace it.

SOURCE: My hood release cable is
If there is a bit of the broken end of cable still visible where it broke off from the handle, try grabbing it with a pair of vise grips to pull it and open the hood.
Maybe the handle will need to be removed in order to get to the broken end of the cable.

There a latch jammed inside, its simple. I too faced the same problem. If you how to open the door to see the inner parts. Then you can fix it by yourself. Or else take to your nearest mechanic, he would just charge $2-$3 to correct the jammed latch.

ya i recently had my battery go bad on me. 06 sonata is @ 58k. previous to the battery issue had noted as irritating and strange as it is that my hood latch was not releasing, so after a tow to the shop and a 3 day rental...parts and labor was over$500. the very nxt week even tho i asked them to take a look as id had the ESC off light illuminiate vry sporadically recently. was "noted and light is off now" by the shop. 3 days out of shop light on again....back in shop a week after first. now i'm being told the entire ESC electronics system needs to be replaced at just under $600. i am starting to suspect i shud have gone w a honda.
