USA HOOD OPEN Warning in Toyota Camry XLE

Hi, I am getting "Hood Open" warning even though it was closed. I tried open and close it for several time but it is still showing the same warning. Can any one please suggest me steps to look into this issue. Where to look for the sensor and what steps needs to be taken for taking care of this issue.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Mine doesn't either. I'll check the XLE later to see if one comes up!

Hi, I am getting a warning signal for this Hood Open. I didn't get it previously. I am getting now. Please let me know where to check that.

The sensor is part of the hood latch.

The wiring comes almost straight up to and below the latch.

The strippers are not equipped with the hood theft prevention sensor.

What do you mean "The stippers"?
I have the same problem with my 2011 Camry and it is driving me nuts!!! It is making my car alarm go off whenever it wants like in the middle of the night while I'm sleeping.

I believe he is referring to the low end models like the CE and LE.

I think I have this solved. My only problem is that I don't know in what year they put this failsafe in place.

I have the hood latch warning issue. The sensor is probably bad. However it goes away. Every time I disconnect my battery, it comes back. I do a lot of driving, and when I drive for an hour straight, The light finally decides to shut off. This has happened on at least four occasions. So, I'm thinking that there is a mechanism in place that if your morning is going off while driving for a long time, then it just shuts that warning down. I am also thinking that Toyota must have recognized this issue somewhere along the way, and put the failsafe in place. After all, it would only take a moment of extra programming, and no other parts.

I also have had the alarm issue going off whenever it wants to. And I agree it is related to the light. So, my final comment, then is to make sure that you Drive your car straight for an hour without turning off the engine, and let the car decide that the sensor must be faulty.

Ha ha, I'm not saying it's pretty but it seems to be what's going on. Instead of recalling a bunch of cars. Just make an extra few lines of program that says "if car driving more than 30 min at 60mph, then sensor bad, turn off sensor".

Something like that. Regardless, any time that has happened to me, I can fix it like clockwork by doing a long drive that I routinely make anyway. In fact, before making my previous post, I purposely disconnected my battery, got the hood warning, made my normal drive from Milwaukee to Green Bay, and within an hour the light had shut off.

It's the only conclusion I have that makes sense at this point.

There is a TSB that addresses this issue. My 2010 Venza had the exact same problem, but on the Venza, you have to replace the entire hood latch assembly. On the Camry, you can just replace the switch in the hood latch. I posted a link to the TSB below.
