Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Your hood as two hood latches and then the secondary latch.. If one is stuck, then you would of course need to open the hood to see the cause. To do this you would need to remove the inside inner fender liner on the drivers side. Under there is where the hood release cable comes from inside and T's off to two cables, one for each latch. I would check to make sure both are attached, and at the same time, if you pull each one of them. that will pop those hood latches so you can get a better look at what is going on.

How difficult is that to remove the fender liner?

It's not to bad. I recommend you jack up the car and take the wheel off to remove it..

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
