Plymouth Voyager

I have a 1995 Plymouth Voyager Minivan. On the inside of the van the hood latch is broken. When I stand in front of the van I can see on the driver's side where the previous owner has pulled a wired out and has it taped and tucked between the grill and the hood. I'm not sure how to trip this wire or even if this will cause the hood to release. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I need to add oil, fluids, etc to the car and am unable to do so.

thank you!
