I work on only Honda/Acura vehicles 5 days a week so I know the brand well. The most likely problem here is a faulty hood switch. You can disconnect the hood switch connector and short it out to rule the switch out as the problem.You will have to remove the top plastic shield near the radiator to access the connector. Once you are there disconnect it and use a paper clip or something similar to jump the harness side connector terminals together. This will simulate the hood switch being closed all the time. Don't short the switch side of the connector terminals together as this will not produce any results. You have to short of the harness side of the connector. You can leave this connector like this long term. It will not cause any issues.
