If your safety catch isn't working DO NOT drive with a bungy cord that isn't enough! When air gets under that hood it can make a bungy cord look like a piece of bubble gum, do NOT drive with just a bungy cord holding the hood down!

Oil up the latch, pour oil over it, click it shut with a screw driver and pop it open, do this over and over and over and you should be able to get it loose again. Spray oil into the cable housing too.
