Auto-Start (Hood Ajar)
My auto-start feature has it's own mind. I am going to name my Overland, "Christine".

Several times it has "Started" OK, runs for about 1 minute and then the engine shuts off. The EVIC displays " Hood Ajar".

Anyone else had this problem?

Thanks STRILLA and Scottina06, Switch appeared to be OK. Dealer reloaded vehicle configuration for Auto-Start.

Will report back after several days of use.
