    Check the release handle in the car has returned to the correct position. that happened to me once and i noticed the handle was sticking.

    The location hole that the mating part from the bonnet sounds like it has "stuck" there is a sort of spring that goes diagonaly across the hole and it holds the "spike" from the bonnet in firmly. It sounds like it might need som grease or the likes on it to free it up, worth having a look at it .

    check the cable run right back to inside the car and check for any damage you might need a new cable worse case
