I need help with my son's Ford Bravado

    Inside the car on the driver's side, the latch that you use to pop the hood has come off, and all that is left is a wire. I've tried to pull the wire to pop the hood but to no avail. The battery is dead, the key is locked in the ignition (can't pull it out) and we can't open the hood to jump it. I need help! :-)

      you'll never be able to pull it with your hands ... get a pair of pliers then pull the wire... you can also get your son to push down on the hood when you pull ... once pulled hold it and ask your son to lift. should work.

    No guarantees, but this is worth a shot. It worked for me once.

    Physically yank up on the hood. Maybe have someone pull on the wire at the same time, though may not be necessary.

    I hope it works. smile

    A pair of small Vice Grips on the cable tightly . to get leverage ! Should do it.  If not you may be able to get up under the hood with a tool to slide the release manualy. good luck!
