Mines been broken for 2 years. Look under the hood,you'll see a small loop. take a flathead screwdriver and push on it towards the right. it'll pop open.
then pull your handle/cable out of the cab,and wrap it around that loop and let it hang between the radiator and grill under the truck and pull on the handle when you need to open it. thats how i fixed mine,but im a redneck lol
