This video shows you how to open the hood in your 1994 Ford Probe. Popping the hood, or bonnet, on your Probe is a two step process, you need to release the hood latch inside your Probe and then you need to release the safety latch under your hood in the front of your Probe. The video above shows you the location of both hood latches.
Sometimes, the hood on Fords gets stuck and won't pop up after the interior latch is released. If you need to open the hood with a stuck latch on your Probe, simply pull up on the hood and it should pop up for you to release the second latch. Another option is to pull the interior hood release, then bang on the hood to see if that pops it open.
If your hood still won't open, you may have a broken hood release cable. Opening the hood on your Probe with a broken cable requires you to use a coat hanger to reach through the grille and release the latch on the bottom of the hood latch. Sometimes, especially on older Probes, you may have difficulty getting your hood to latch when you close it. In this case, the interior release lever on your 1994 Ford Probe is probably stuck in the “open” position – push the release lever back and forth several times and then try to close your hood.
