I have a strange problem. I was driving around yesterday without a problem. Came home to pick up my wife, Shut engine off and then car wouldn't start. Thought my battery died but don't know.

H​ello my name is ***** ***** it feel like the cable broke? Or is there still some tension on the handle when trying to release?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question

Try pulling on the release lever, and at the same time the lever is pulled to the release position, have another person tap on the front of the hood, sometimes this jarring will free the latch.

I will try this in the next few minutes. Have another question. Was driving around yesterday without problem. Came home stopped car on drive way. Tried to restart car. Car wouldn't start. Just got clicking noise and but car wouldn't start. Thought maybe my car battery died. Was going to try to jump start engine. Lights inside car work and radio works but headlights flash and car won't start.

C​ould either be a bad battery, or it could be a charging system concern.

Or possible cable connection problem, corrosion?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
