the lever inside the car to release the hood will not budge. What would cause this to happen and how can I fix it.

You might be able to remove the splash pan under the front of the car and reach up with a long screw driver and release the latch mechanism. Once open, lubricate the latch liberally and work it back and forth...this video will give you an idea what you have to do.

2008 AURA XE
Default Re: 2007 aura XR hood release problem

Ignore my previous post. I just looked at mine and found the Radiator and AC condenser looks to be blocking access to the latch.
Try to have someone attempt to operate the hood release in the car while you press repeatedly on the hood above the latch. Hopefully it works it enough to release it. If it does lubricate the latch.
If it doesn't open then try to spray penetrating fluid between the grill and hood and soak the latch and repeat pressing on the hood while someone operates the latch.
I just lubricated me so I don't end up with a seized latch too.
