Try pushing in the hood release cable under the dash, if this doesn't work,with the hood open and supported, try spraying the hood release mechanism in the center of the grill/radiator area that the hood latch fits into with WD40 or some better penetrating oil/lubricant. If this doesn't work either the cable, lever or locking mechanism is bad.
Hey I had work done on my chrysler and they had to pull the engine., It used to latch and now wont latch. I think it maybe the latch cable they did not connect. How do I got about doing that?
