Have a helper jiggle the hood up and down as you move the handle. Sometimes they get stuck. If that opens the hood, make sure to lubericate the linkage and the cable to prevent it from happening again. If that doesn't work, using a flashlight, locate where the cable attaches to the linkage. Make sure it is releasing it. You may need a long screwdriver to help it along if it isn't fully releasing.
