Hood Open warning
I have a CL500 2003, 5Ltr.
As I move off I get the red "Hood Open" warning on the dashboard.
The microswitch under the hood latch is performing fine, no problem here.
It is closed-circuit when the hood is open, and the microswitch is open-circuit when the hood is closed.
I have disconnected the microswitch altogether. Which leaves this sensor disabled/bypassed, and so I should never get a warning.
To be sure, I also disconnected the connector at the front SAM (connector has two wires, one brown, one brown/red)
Problem is that I still get the warning on the dash continuously when I move off.
Any suggestions on how to further investigate this problem would be much appreciated. Not getting any feedback on CL forum, thought I would try a wider audience.
