Help...I have a malfunctioning hood sensor that is creating havoc on my security system.
When I lock the doors, the security system does not engage (no honk on the second lock.) I checked all of the doors and sensors, and the hood seems to be the cuplrit.
The weird thing is, when I open the hood and lock the doors, the security system engages. I guess the hood sensor is acting up, and the only part that looks like it knows when the hood is opened or closed is the 1/8-inch plunger a few inches to the right of the hood lock.
Occasionally the security system alarm goes off (doors locked but security system not set when I walk away). I attribute this intermittent alarm to the same sensor.
The question is: Does anyone know where to find a replacement part, or can make a recommendation on how to maintain or repair this plunger part?
