2013 Hood will not open

6335 Views 13 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  heword7
Two weeks ago I opened the hood to add wiper fluid, and it was unusually hard to close. The usual drop from 12" did not work, so I actually had to "slam" it shut. Now, when I pull the release handle, nothing happens. The hood remains locked shut.

Does anybody have any suggestions on how to open the hood?

Taken from the web (I bear no responsibility for this advice):

Sometimes, the hood on Chevrolets gets stuck and won't pop up after the interior latch is released. If this occurs on your Volt, simply pull up on the hood and it should pop up for you to release the second latch. Sometimes, especially on older Volts, you may have difficulty getting your hood to latch when you close it. In this case, the interior release lever on your 2013 Chevrolet Volt is probably stuck in the "open" position - push the release lever back and forth several times and then try to close your hood.
