Having problems with your 2003 Isuzu Rodeo ?
2003 isuzu redeo. I can't open the hood. it looks like the cable broke. battery died and i can't even ope the hood to fix it.
Here is what i do to get hoods open, go under the dash and cut back the outer cover of the hood release cable, buy a pair of good vise grip clamping jaw pliers (any hardware store will have these) and grasp the stub end of the inner steel hood release cable u exposed under the dash, have another person push down on the Hood over the hood latch area at front center of the hood to lessen the spring tension on the hood latch, pull back on the vise grips, this should release the hood, then lube the latch and replace the hood cable or keep the vise clamping pliers in the car, never had this not work in 35 years, takes a few tries sometimes
