hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for allowing me to try and help you. when you pull the new cable does it pull out too easy or not at all? try have some one pull it and you bounce the hood right where the latch is

if that don't work you may have to lift the vehicle up at the front to take off any under sheild so you can access the latch from under the vehicle and use a long screw driver to release it hope this helps and good luck
