You will have to go to the latch on the hood and push it back together where the cable is. It should latch then.

Thank u @tuff4x4 I'm pretty sure the cable is either frozen and or severely rusted. The lever actually broke off a months ago just after I had my last oil change.. I just opened it the other day with pliers (pulled too hard) bc I had to refill the washer fluid.. Which is when I realized it wouldn't properly close. It's -20 something out so I think it's rusty from not being used for so long as well as probably frozen..
