hood ajar during remote start

Hi all, my 2011 wk2 wont remote start anymore, i get a message saying the hood is ajar. I know it has something to do with the sensor near the hood release latch, but i dont know where it is located. I was wondering if anyone had a pic or something that shows where i should look. Ive been searching google all day with no luck. Thanks in advance

Had the same issue. Dealer repaired under warranty. I believe this is the sensor but not 100% sure:

Re: hood ajar during remote start

I thought that would be it. It looked fine. But idk. I guess ill just bite the bullet and take it to the dealer. I just got out of warranty by 1000 miles. I know its something simple though

Question Re: hood ajar during remote start

Is there any update to this post? I've started having this issue with my JGC within the past month or so at 18k miles
