Does an R230 have a sensor that tells the car the hood is closed or open? My 2007 SL550 gives a red notification on the dash cluster at speeds around 85MPH or more, that the hood is not shut all the way and needs to be closed. The hood is shut correctly, and hasn't become open at all. I'm assuming that there's a sensor that I could replace near the front of the car? I don't spend a lot of time at those speeds, but when I do, I don't want red warnings popping up on the cluster!! It is a heavy hood and I drop it shut from about 12-16 inches, it clearly is shut all the way. My SL600 gave this warning once or twice as well, but only a few times and never bothered me again...
