SOURCE: Hood Latch Wire ???
I had the same problem on mine. You can get to the latch from underneath right behind the bumper. You will need a long screw driver or pry bar to push the tab that the cable connects to. On mine I had to have someone push down on the hood slightly while I pushed the tab.

Have someone hold in on the release lever while you try and shut the hood. Sometimes the cable can get a little stretched and not want to go back into position. If that doesn't work, see if you can manually close the latch with a screwdriver. See if anything is binding when you do this.

The cable has snapped. The easy bit is replacing it, the hard bit is getting the bonnet open to do so. Take it to a good local garage, or even to ford to open the hood, tell them you can't open the hood and say nothing. Let them open the hood for you, and close it slowly, just one click, so it it still latched, then change the cable.

SOURCE: hood release wont latch
This maybe a problem of the hood being misaligned. in order to remedy this you will have to adjust the 4 bolts on the hinges holding the hood in place and the latch little by little. But first try a penetrating oil on the latch assembly and look for anything out of place.

use a coat hanger and go through grill and hook the hood latch. you can also lay under front of car with a few extensions and a rachet, and take out the bolts that hold hood latch. if both fail. remove grill if possible to get to hood latch. good luck !!
