Hi, my name is***** your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologise for any delay.

I try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

Dear customer, the problem that you present in your consultation is not with the mechanized system of the hood, but it is simply the release mechanism that has problems, as will you understand this system works with an electrical signal that sends to a mechanism that allows the release of the hook of the bonnet lock, the problem is not in the electrical signal because it is just receiving this signal since you hear the noise trying to activate but the mechanical part of the hook is the one that is not allowing the release, you must proceed to verify this, Obviously the plug is seeing this is the first thing you should do, you can do it through the grill making a small disassembly to access the mechanical system manually, you can also enter from the bottom but the best thing is to lift your Volvo a little to be able to enter with more easily and with the help of a screwdriver or tweezers to be able to push the latch of the hook, once opened this you know to verify what is happening with the mechanical hook system.
