Customer Question

When I disconnect the hood open switch on my 2007 Camry XLE, the hood open indicator stays on. If I short out the switch will it go off?

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

Thank you
