Hood won't open! 2006 Vibe

We have a 2006 Pontiac with no problems, except all of the sudden the hood won’t open! We pull on the latch inside the car and nothing! No, the cable isn’t broken - any ideas before I run out of fluids?

A good body shop should be able to get the hood open quite easily since they deal with these problems on a daily basis. Your hood latch is probably in need of adjustment or the latch bolts are loose.

Have someone bang on the hood while the hood release is being pulled.
