The car hood release button not working. It will release, but won't allow me to open the hood.
This is a pretty typical issue seen on your vehicle. The release cable stretches over time and no longer pulls the latch far enough. You have to have an assistant pull the release while somebody pries on the hood with a non marring bar. A technician from YourMechanic can adjust the latch to compensate a stretched cable or replace the cable if no adjustment is left.
