My dad's '94 likes to pull this stunt...pull the hood latch and nothing
happens at all. The "puller" feels totally disconnected...but go out and
give the hood a good slap and it will pop up. It's done this since close to

involve following it out of the cab to see if you can cut into it and get at
some wire that way...
