0 votes
2010 toyota prius. Did install and it worked fine. Next day came back because it wont start. Lights flash 5 times indicating hood open. I disconnected hood switch and issue persists. Reprogrammed unit to the vehicle and it works again. Possibly bad unit? Service number 001a07 016839

2 reasons why you can get 5 flashes

  1. Module detects hood open via CAN
  2. DARK BLUE (A8) is at ground.

Vehicle does not have factory hood pin. I even disconnect the dark blue wire and it still did it
Turn OFF A11
Ok, thanks
