Driving down the 5 frwy to work this morning around 6am and "Hood Open" message comes on my DIC. I move over to the right lane and make it to my exit and pull over to check it. Sure enough it's in the safety latch position. I haven't opened the hood in several days and it just came up when driving on the frwy. How can this happen with it being a mechanical release, any ideas?
My trunk does pop open at times but that's a known issue and never had my hood pop open on it's own. I'll take a closer look at the mechanics later today.

Something flexed to pull it.

Or the latch needs to be sprayed up because the spring didn't pull the catch all the way back last time you opened it

Dang. I had a 2nd gen S10 with a 4 3/4" cowl hood. I was loading it up on a trailer to go sell it and after checking everything over I thought I'd go take it for a rip up the road ne last time. I got about 3/4 a mile up the road and the hood I forgot to close flipped open and the cowl punched a hole through the windsheild and dash. It was awesome. 😬
