To get a sensible answer you'll need to tell us in what
language and how you build the string in the first place.

hope ab$cd is itself a table and $cd is not a variable.
Try using \ backslash.

For columns we can use them similarly too.

SELECT columns FROM table WHERE
column LIKE '%[%]%'

-- or

SELECT columns FROM table WHERE
column LIKE '%\%%' ESCAPE '\'
