Hood latch The hood release wire either broke or was disconnected from the hood latch. Now the hood is closed, but can not be opened with the release. Is there another way of releasing the hood?

I assume that this means "hood won't open" not "hood won open". I have a 2002 audi A4 with the 3.0. The battery is dead and I cannot access the battery because the hood release will not work. There is tension on the cable when it is pulled but no release. I have tried pushing down on the hood while pulling the lever and I have tried pulling on the hood while pulling on the lever. Neither has worked. Is there an emergency release and how is it accessed?
