Hi. Sometimes a faulty hood switch (if equipped) can cause the alarm to go off. Can you check under your hood to see if there is a switch that the hood hits when it is closed?

I have what is called a hood ajar switch. How do I see if hood hits it when closed?
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 26 days ago.

You really cant see it, but you can try to adjust it up more just to make sure the hood is contacting it when closed and see if it helps. Also I have found if you unplug the hood switch the alarm should not go off, if that is what is causing the problem. So you can also try unplugging it to see if the alarm stops going off.
