In the past I have cocked the spring open and close until I finally get it to shut, but I want to fix this before I go nuts!
I have had the exact same problem with my '03 for years!!! I would actually slam the hood so hard I would bust the headlight bulbs. I tried lubing everything with no success.
I wish I had an answer for you, but, oddly enough, when I brought my truck in to the dealer for the frame replacement in January, it came back with my hood problem solved.
I have no clue what they did? They did not replace the whole latch mech, that's for sure. I guess the point I am making, is that there is a fix for this.
