Ok. The best way I have found to fix this issue is to lube up the latch under the hood with a good penetrating oil. Then work the latch open/close/open/close/open/close, until the latch is working good. These latches just get a little stick after a while.

I sprayed the latch part earlier in an attempt to fix it but that didn't work. What did work however was to spray the latch release from inside the car. It seems as though the cable rusted up or had dirt somewhere around that area but is working now. Thank you.
