Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello I will help you with your qhestion, Yes, if you short the switch connector it will perform the same function as the swith does when the hood is closed. This is a ground circuit so all the switch does is close to ground when the hood is closed and open when the hood is open. Is the hood actually closing on the switch or is there a missing part that should be pushing on the plunger.
Let me know how I can help
