Is it safe to drive with the hood open warning light?
Hood open warning lights are equipped on modern cars to notify the driver about the problem of the hood. When this warning light comes on, it means the hood is not closed and can obstruct your view when they are flipped over.
At this point, you should pull over to the curb and check the hoods to make sure they’re closed. If the hood is closed properly, the warning light will automatically turn off.
If the light stays on after you’ve verified that the hood is fixed, it’s likely either a connection problem with the switch or a worn switch.
The hood latch usually has two layers of locking latches – an inner side lever and an outer main lever – to prevent the hood from opening when it is not needed.
Therefore, even if the bonnet warning lights come on, they are still difficult to open and you can still drive normally. However, the warning light that is constantly on will affect your concentration while driving.
How to Disable the active hood warning?
You have checked all and closed the bonnet according to the correct procedure but the warning error continues to come on, most likely this is a software error of the control box or a worn switch. In case the capo latching switch is faulty, you need to locate the switch and make sure that the connector is fully plugged in before attempting to replace the switch.
Sometimes closing the hood can knock switches and connectors out of place and may not cause any actual damage. If the connector still works fine, maybe main switch needs to be replaced.
If you can’t find any mechanical fault, it’s probably software. You will need to use specialized software and equipment to diagnose errors and perform coding and resetting the bonnet control box.
