Q: Can't get hood up to jump truck.

asked by on

The driver's side lights are on and the truck won't start. The hood cable is broken and the hood dented, so I can't get the hood to release so I can jump the truck off.

Hello, the first thing that needs to be done is to get the hood open. Once the hood is open, further diagnosis can be performed. You may need the aid of mechanic to get the hood open. Note that when trying to get the hood open other thing might get damaged in the process and those item will need to be repair or replaced also.
