Remote start abort due to hood open?

Have this warning on mine at the moment, vehicle was actually sitting for about 10 days and worked fine prior, tried opening and closing hood and wiggled the sensor around a bit. Are there any aftermarket parts if i need a new one?

I have the same issue, but have been too lazy to take it in just for this, I plan on dealing with it my next oil change.

My understanding is the switch is built into the hood latch and you need to replace the latch. $40 at moparonlineparts.com, $57 or less at dealers. Part number 04589687AA, I think, for 2013. Its used in a wide variety of Chrysler vehicles.

Thanks, is it pretty straight forward to remove? I see the connection next to the latch. I am going to try and unplug it and see how it comes apart, but damn its like 15 degrees here!

There are two domestic versions of the latch, one with remote start (has the switch) another version for vehicles without remote start (no switch).

so you have to buy the whole assembly not just the switch?

Dunno but the parts book says the 04589687AA switch is only available as part of the $50 hood latch assembly. The FSM says "An installed hood ajar switch cannot be readjusted or repaired. If the switch is damaged, ineffective, or requires readjustment, it must be replaced with a new unit."

The switch is a normally closed, single pole, spring-loaded plunger actuated switch. If you want to compromise the safety device, you could try to disconnect the wires and see if remote start works, if not then short the contacts and see what happens. Add some duct tape for effect.

^^^ This. Pull the electrical connector and short the contacts.

Initial fix only temporary, opened up the hood and re cleaned everything, I removed the cabled coming from the drivers side that attaches to the latch after seeing that it did not retract when working the latch.

I removed it from the keeper and placed it behind the latch, it kind of wedged itself there and now the latch forces it into the tube and is not relying on the spring I assume is inside to pull it in. So far it working, i may try and rig a retainer of sorts so it does not float in its original retainer any more, poor design it looks like to me that would be easy to improve!

Not sure my description is good, however if you look at it you will see how it works, or doesnt work!
