I had the same problem recently. Seemed to occur mainly after the car sat in sun for awhile and temp was above 90 degrees. I lubed the latch assy. pretty good and activated the actuator several times with the hood up. With each successive activation the actuator motor became noticeably weaker. Replaced the actuator (easy fix - 10 min. total) and hood/latch assy. now operates according to designed intent.
