MY HOOD WON'T STAY LATCHED

Toyota Corolla

The hood on my Corolla won't stay latched. When I popped my hood to add washer fluid, the lever inside stayed out. I pushed it back, but now the hood won't latch completely--it raises to the point where you reach in and release the primary latch, but the secondary one that keeps it flush with the fenders, doesn't latch. What do I have to do to make this work again?

Get an screwdriver and push the latch to the point where it " locks" probably it got out of adjustment or a spring its loose after you figured out what is wrong open it from inside the car.
Also check the rubber adjusters on the corners those keeps the hod perfectly flush.
