SOURCE: Hood Release Cable
have you tried to crawling under the car and using a pair pliers to pull on the cable. If you go under the car just in front of the fire wall you should be able to see the cable hanging there. Just pull ******* it.

Try pulling the Hood Release and Going to the Front. Use the Ball of your Fist on the Very front of the Hood Lightly where the Latch is and It should Release.

SOURCE: Hood wont close
the alignment must be off...are all the seams on the side equal?
Has someone sat on or bumped the hood? Can you see what's hitting? Is the hood pin going into the hood latch? Has someone played with the latch while the hood is up and it's not in position to receive the latch pin?

SOURCE: hood latch is broken
This is not easy, I'll tell you this up front. If it were you'd be missing your battery in the morning....lol. First, you've got to go to a crafts shop or hardware store and find a piece of solid metal rod with a 1/16th diameter and 30 inches long. At one end you want to bend an "L" shape the width of a pair of vicegrips teeth. At the other end you want to wrap the rod around your hand, as best as possible(this will become your handle). With a good small flashlight in one hand and the rod in the other, lie one the ground and look up underneath the bumper towards the hoodlatch at the top of the radiator support. Within this area you'll see a small part of the pull cable. where this connects to the mechanism you want to pull it towards the drivers side fender. Your hood should now pop to the saftey latch position. open the hood and get your release cable replaced asap. Thank you, Dana. P.S. don't get discouraged, this takes patience and some time.

The remote won't ework because the problem is in the vehicle. Just for test purposes and possible remedy. Remove and clean the negative battery cable. Ensure a clean , tight connection. Then find the body ground. Yhis ground is locted usually at the top rear of the engine. .I's a snall stainless steel strap bolted to the engine and fire wall, This must olsobe clean with a good contack. Might as well clean the + cable and connection on the battery while you are there. Good luck and keep me posted olease. Good Luck, Ned_
