94 Cadillac Deville hood will not open

I can not get the hood open on my 94 Cadillac Deville. I tried both latches inside and out. I think the cable may be broken? is there any way manually I can open it? I really don't want to take it to the shop, they charge me so much. Thanks for any help you can give me!

it takes some...

...understanding of the latch mechanism. i'm afraid it would be difficult to describe with great accuracy how to "finagle" a hood latch. basically...on some cars you can reach up from underneath and feel the release with your finger tips and "trip" it...or thru the grill with some kind of hook arrangement.

if you can see or feel where the release cable attaches, that's the secret to releasing it

Have someone hold the hood release while you beat on the hood with your hand just above the latch.
