Make sure it is not binding/sticking where you pull the release cable.
Drench the entire works in WD-40. Push it back and forth until it moves with no resistance.
Make sure the part that hooks onto the latch hasn't come loose enough to not slide over when it makes contact.
If that doesn't work, take the whole thing off. You'll have to anyway to replace it. Chances are with it disassembled you'll see what's wrong.

My girlfriend's 2002 Civic LX 4-door had the same problem. Dvanvught is right; the problem lies with the truck latch cable. If you open the lid and look up at the latch, you will see where the cable comes from the release at the fuel door / trunk release lever inside. When that lever is pulled, it pulls a lever on the latch. The problem is that when you release the lever inside, the cable doesn't retract fully, holding the trunk latch in the open position. If you use your key to manually push the lever on the latch that is attached to the cable toward the cable itself (meaning, push the lever in the direction that will push the wire cable back into its housing), you'll likely find that the trunk lid will then latch. You could replace the cable which would be a bit of a pain considering how it's routed or try to work out a way to put in a return spring to keep pressure on the latch lever, automatically pulling the cable back into the housing.
