Had the same issue yesterday after work. Tried multiple times with varying levels of force but could hear the right side of the hood barely pop up with a small click after every attempt. Drove home with the dash showing "hood open" warning. Couldn't lock the car when I got home so called my sales person, he said to really slam the hood. I expressed my displeasure at having to do that in a $90K car as if it were a 20 year old truck but slammed it down really really hard anyway and the warning light went away. I went to the dealer this morning for an unrelated issue and the tech told me that it was a micro-switch that needs to be replaced (apparently it's a common Jaguar issue). He has ordered it, will let y'all know if that fixes this hood slamming nonsense.
