When pull hood release latch from inside the car it does not disengage the hood lock. Look underneath and try to pull wire manually but didn't work. What are the other options.

You will need to fish around from underneath with a long pry bar or thin pole and try to manually move the hood latch to get it open. I have had mechanics do this for me but never saw exactly how they did it.

you may also feel for cable and open
