For the bonnet check both the latches as they may be stuck. Look on the inner part where the spring goes. The latch shoiuuld return to its set position by the spring. You can use a flat blade screwdriver and small hammer to tap it into place then spray the latch spring with some lubricant to prevent this from reoccurring.For the door try latching it without closing the door to see if the latch mechanism will operate. If not the latch is most likely faulty but we can lubricating that as well.Let me know.
