Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello, unfortunately there is no way to bypass the hood latch. Usually when this happens the only thing to do is raise the vehicle in the air and try to reach up from the bottom with a screwdriver or pliers and either push the latch open from the bottom or pull the cable from the bottom. No easy solution unfortunately but it can be done.
