How can I pop the hood of my car from the outside? My battery died and I can't unlock the door with the key because the battery is completely dead. Is there a way to get the hood open from the outside

You should be able to gain access to the car by using the key in the drivers side door lock and then pull the hood release. if you still cant get into the car you can always try the method in the video link i have provided below how evr i would not recommend this since its more than likely that you may break something else.
