i too have a simalar problem my 1982 hood wont open and there is no way to get to it.from under or over there very tight.if you have room they say you can lift hood and activate clip with screw driver or pull cable.maybe 1994 has easier access.

I have the same problem with an 87 conv.  The hood is released on the right side but will not release on the left side.  I've tried pushing the hood sideways, up and down wtih no luck.  The inside pull has always felt spongy and I have never felt like the hood was going to release.  I tried going through the wheel well with no luck. I tried taking the panel off at the battery and cannot get to one bolt.  I don't think I can get a screw driver under the hood.  Does anybody know of a way to release the hood?

A friend of mine told me the Dec issue of Corvette Fever had a small note about a tool available from Corvette Central used to open hoods.  The part number is 464060.  Check the following link:  http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?parta~dyndetail~Z5Z5Z50000050f~Z5Z5Z5AARWG~P21.95~~~~S27L0MY2BF41297815264a~Z5Z5Z5~Z5Z5Z50000050G

I had my hood lock on me when I first installed it
after detailing the engine compartment. Everyone was
telling me stories of how hard it was to get their
hood free. All I did was lay on my back and slide in under the front of the car, take a 1/2" small length open wrench and if your arm and hand are small enough to reach up to the hinge bolts on the hood.
Loosen these bolts and remove them then you should be able to move the hood enough to free it from the lock pins. Worked for me!
