I had the same thing happen. It is not that hard a fix either. The cable will meet on the drivers side where you will see a first box that can pop open. It can be fixed there with the purchase of a 40$ hood mechanism if it broke in another place there is a junction in the front of the car. The driver part leads ito the fire wall. Make sure you lube them so it does not happen again.
