2014 grand cherokee alarm keeps going off
I have a 2014 grand cherokee overland v6 I have had it about three months
A month ago my engine light came on and found out I had a major oil leak that put car into limp mood . Dealer fixed it and shampooed under the car to clean off all the oil . I got it home set alarm went inside and alarm staring going off . Couldn't get it to arm without it happening so had to lock car without setting alarm. Next day took it back to dealer and they did a re boot of some sort and alarm issue went away although I was certain the pressure washing must have shorted something . Two weeks went by and bingo here we go again i get home park car in garage after driving in wet snow and alarm going off . Wondering what this issue is and if anyone has had similar issue

Re: 2014 grand cherokee alarm keeps going off
After reading the threads I noticed one mentioned the sensor under the hood. I don't have any messages telling me there are any hood latch issues or anything for that matter but just the same this morning I popped the hood which seems a little loose to the touch when I pushed the front by the way and found the sensor and I cleaned it with papertowel jiggled it a bit and it wasn't loose but did move slightly and then close hood and armed truck . It hasn't gone off since? I'm wondering if that means I should change sensor or if hood latch is not tight enough or both? I'll keep an eye on it and see if the issue happens again but even if it doesn't in next Few days I will take it to a dealer to report the issue and have it looked at
I. Also was planning to take truck in to look at driving I find it seems to drive sluggish ? When I had oil leak car went into limp mood it doesn't drive like that but it feels as if it's in Eco even though I turn that off every time I start the truck ? Perhaps I need them to re boot something on computer to rese shift points for smoother drive ? Any thoughts on this?im thinking something may have gotten out of wack when it went into limp mood

Can someone provide me with a pic of the hood sensor and where to locate which is apparently under hood driver side tower shock? Don't know what that is so not sure what I'm looking for ?
