Hello, i have a 2017 chevy cruz. i cannot get the hood to open and latch release feels stuck (do not want to apply too much force and break)

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you hear a thunk when you pull the lever?

No. the inside latch is stuck and will not release

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '17 Chevy?

Basic cruz

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

NOTHING other than trying to release the inside latch...

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The car also won't start

Will it pop up a couple inches when pulling the release under the dash?

Have you tried spraying some lube on it?
