Just follow these simple steps and you’ll be able to open the hood of your Dodge Ram 1500 in no time. Initially, you must locate the hood release lever. On the majority of models, this is positioned near the floor on the driver’s side of the interior. After locating the lever, pull it toward you. When the hood latch has been released, you should hear a distinct “click” sound.
Next, you must raise the hood. Grab the hood release handle located towards the front of the vehicle to accomplish this. Once you have a good grasp on the handle, you should be able to open the hood with relative ease by slowly pulling up.
Once the hood is opened, the engine and other components under the hood will be accessible. To ensure that the hood remains open, there is typically a prop rod that can be used. Find the little metal rod located towards the front of the hood and insert it into the small hole located in the fender well.
You are now able to access all components located beneath the hood of your Dodge Ram 1500. If you ever need to make repairs or modifications, you will be able to open the hood with ease.
