Default my hood come open back up

I had my hood up doing some minor work on my 94 se.. When i went into the house and came back I notice my 4 yr old cousin playing around the front of the hood. I closed the hood and after awhile i tried to open the hood back up and it won't come up. When i pull on the hood release lever, it goes up without any resistance or air pressure. what do i do?

Sounds like the cable came undone. Your going to have to try to come in from under or from the front to pop the hood. Could be a real pain. I've never had to try it, but a car is set up so you can't open the hood from outside easy.

How did you finally get it? Also, was the cable unhooked?
