if anyone can help me out. this has never happened to any vw i've owned before.. while driving, parked, off, idling or any time on my display my hood light is on, the hood is closed! but the light is still on. as i go over small bumps/potholes, the light toggles on/off. we've just had tons of snow in the chicago area and while the hood light is on i can't use the wipers.. fun time driving.. the other really bothersome thing is while the car is in park/in the driveway the alarm will go off because it thinks someone is prob. trying to get in. is this a fuse or am i SOL? let me know, thanks
If it's going on and off when you hit bumps I would assume it's the sensor that detects if the hood is closed. Not sure where it's located, but that would be what I'd look for first. I would imagine if it was a fuse you'd have more things acting up as I doubt the hood sensor has its own fuse.
