How do you open the hood of a Jeep Patriot?

I just got a Jeep Patriot, and I’m trying to open the hood, but it won’t open. I’ve pulled the release lever by the steering wheel, and it opened a little, but I can’t pull it up all the way. Help? How do you open the hood in a Jeep Patriot?

Congrats on your new Jeep! The hood of the Patriot has a safety release lever that’s probably preventing you from opening the hood. The safety release is under the middle of the hood towards the front. Reach under and find the lever with your hand to release the hood. Your hood should open all the way.
