Question 2018 Equinox Hood Open Warning

Hey all,
Recently on my 2018 Equinox, I have been receiving a "hood open" warning on my car. The hood is completely shut but it seems a little wiggly. My car is still under warranty and this problem has happened multiple times. Any suggestions... I really don't want to take it into the shop.

IDK . .. if it were me, I'd take it in. Probably a 10 minute fix or maybe just a hood/switch adjustment or loose connection. You could try and find the switch and connector to it and reseat it. Maybe check for corrosion if you live in a "road salt" area.


Not sure why you wouldn't want to take it in if still in warranty.

theyll just replace that hood latch.


Many folks report that late at night- the latch would fail- and the vehicle alarm would sound.

It will also keep remote start from working.
