My car is definitely NOT getting better as it ages...and I'm getting tired of these BS little issues to the point where I want to dump it and get a beater...something that I'd expect to have to fix little things on. I think the car's best days were back in the first two weeks...and it's been all downhill from there.
All of a sudden, I'm getting a "Hood Open" message on the DIC, which chimes in every few minutes of driving or so. It's happening frequently enough that it's prohibiting me from using the remote start.
I checked the latch and it works fine...the hood is down and holding properly...but the message remains. This just started yesterday after I fixed an unrelated issue with the wiring to my LED signal strips. I guess the only link between the two is that I opened and closed the hood in the process. It's not tapped into a common ground.
Has anyone diagnosed and repaired a faulty hood latch sensor? Is it in the latch mechanism itself, like it is for the passenger doors, or elsewhere on the chassis?
