    Can anyone tell me what this is? I know it pushes up against my hood when the hood is closed, but I noticed its in the way after I installed my hood struts. Is it connected to my alarm? Thanks!

    yes, it has a wire coming from it. the wire isnt that long, so im not sure where i can move it to. honestly, how often do hoods get popped open? im thinking about just letting it hang (secured to something of course so it doesnt bounce around).

    anyone else relocate it?

    Hey by chance do you have a remote starter!!!! I dont have one in mine but in the past I have had them and it had something simlar to prevent the remote starter from working if the hood was open!! Just a thought!
