    Default 99 Chevy Blazer hood latch problems

    When I pull the lever in the cab, the hood doesnt pop up. I don't think it's simply stuck, because when one person pulls the lever and another person pulls up on the hood, it still doesn't go up. Also, there isn't much resistance in from the cable when I pull the lever, and the cable doesn't pull back all the way.

    With time, the cables stretch. Your best bet is to replace the cable. On my last mini-van I just bypassed the interior release and rigged another cable that dangled below the grill.
