Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Experience with this issue leads me to recommend to you to have the hood latch replaced. Inside the hood latch is a small switch that is connected to the alarm system. These latches are known to fail and cause false alarm readings. Replace the hood latch and your problem should be eliminated. If you have any questions, please reply. Please do take a moment to confirm you have received my input. Thanks!
