Dear customer

Dear customer, it seems to be a false contact in the switch or sensor of the bonnet, it is something strange because tried to think of a similarity in the wiring but could not get one, my recommendation is that you do a wiring check following the wiring of the bonnet switch following the continuity of the wiring, we will be able to see in which section is split or burned the wiring, this kind review is good to do it through an oscilloscope to be more specific.

Hi Sebestian,
Thanks for reply.. Hmm where I can do that wiring check? I have no any specific devices to do that..
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 8 days ago.

Without the proper equipment the only way to verify is visually, but it is very cumbersome and you need at least a tester or multimeter.
