I am sorry your having this problem

did this problem start out of the blue one day ?

is the hood visually closed all the way ?

was the car in an accident or was anything done to where now you have this problem ?

when this light comes on the hood latch switch is either bad saying the hood is open when it is not or the wire from the switch to the computer is bad

if this was in an accident the odds are the switch was damaged or the wiring to the switch in the area of the latch

usually a visual inspection would show if the wires or the swtich were cracked or cut if that wire checks out then usually a new switch will correct this problem you are having

# 2 in the picture is the hood swithc assembly
