Sometimes the latch mechanism where the post catches just gets gummed up. I would spray it down good with some carb clean and have someone work the cable from the inside to see what is happening.

i took the wire that runs to the latch and made a loop so you pull that and it puts it back in its place. i'll take a pic later my car is in the shop.
