HOOD LATCH PROBLEM

Ford Expedition

The hood latch won't close on my 97 Expedition. Had this problem once before and all the dealer did was lube it. I've kept it lubed and lubed it plenty today with WD40 but am now afraid to drive it. The secondary latch is still in place ok.
The cable is still attached and can see small cam movement when the latch is pulled. The 'catch' seems to be able to move down and back up but doesn't seem to catch.
