I have a 2003 an it got a twa way hood, and the way you open it, is by inserting key and turn it to your left you'll feel unlocked and the top part pops. All you need to do is lift that top part and for the bottom part you'll see the latch as soon as you lift the top...

If you have a inside hood release, the cable might have come off the latch system. If you can see the latch through the front hood seam or the grille, use a long screw driver or putty knife blade to trip the latch. If the latch release is OK, the POP-UP spring might be broken and you could use a coat hanger wire to pull up on the hood as the latch is released.

From under front of vehicle, lay under hood and remove the hood latch with a long extension and rachet. This works on most vehicles. God-Bless!

My 1989 Volvo 240 gl hood won't open cable doesn't pop hood, what can i do to open it


You have 2 choices. You can try to grab the cable through the grill, cut it then see if the wire can then be pulled to release the hood.
Another option is to go from underneath with big screwdriver to move the latch thus releasing the hood latch. Not sure if you can get access to it on this vehicle easily. try a flashlight and from under the car reach way up into the latch area.

Hood release cable out from hood latch


from under the car you will need to get up to where the actual catch mechanism is located, from there you should be able to manually release the hood, it may take some effort , but there will be access,although limited... if there is part of the cable accessible grab it with vice grips and pull, hood should release. if not you'll have to find the part on the catch itself that the cable connects too and pull it to release.

My hood got stuck and i cant open it how do i open it help


Common problem. Have someone pull the release while you bang on the edge of the front of the hood with the heal of your hand, keep on the edge as you can dent the hood very easy. it will pop open then spray the latch with WD40. Let me know if this works.

I cant open the hood of the 2003 toyota corolla..what shall I do . Can someone help me?


Try this. have some one pull the release while you bang on the front edge of the hood, be careful as the metal on the hood is thin and will dent easly. Try to use the heel of your hand right on the edge of the hood in the middle front edge against the bumper. The hood should pop up. When it is open sprayWD40 all over the lock and latch. Let me know if this works.

I cant get it to charge. i replaced the alternator ihad it checked before i assembled it it also pops threw the carb when i accelerate.


Check for main fuse for charging Or Alternator under hood. Popping through throttle body could be timing, or electrical, so lets get that working good first.

Same as above... cant pop hood with a dead battery


If you open the fuse box in driver's compartment by your left leg, there is a red plug that you can pull that will expose a positive lead.

Put a charger on the lead and ground the other side of the charger to the frame and it will provide power to use the hood latch.

I have seen other people write about using the car charger that fits into the cigarette lighter but I have no personal knowledge. I hope that is helpful.

There is also an emergency release under one of the wheel wells but I never attempted to look for it.
