Escort Hood Release stuck open

Hello!
I pulled my hood release and it stuck open. It is very cold here. I sprayed silicone on the mechanism and on the hood latch handle inside the car, and worked the mechanism with a screw driver, but it is still stuck open. Has anybody ever experienced this problem?

ok, do you have any starter fluid?

it should melt it off and help if it releases it, drench it in wd40 and you should be good
