2009 town and country, 127,000 miles 3.8 liter
I am having a problem with my remote start cutting out because the hood ajar warning light comes on when the hood isn't open, any ideas / thanks

Before going too nuts go look how wires look that sense hood "ajar" at lower or upper latch - IDK would have to look for a problem there first.
Your call and especially if aftermarket think hard about getting that properly removed it will only leave you stranded or cause problems as it is now,

Ok I'll check wires, it is not after market by the way, and the warning lite does not come on all the time, there is a button type switch mounted near the battery and switch seems ok, I've tried to look up new switch, but not having any luck, would this switch be the only one or is there more near the latch ?
Thanks again

I can't know option packages how involved stuff gets - latches or at just a button as you said. If you can push on it then see if it changes inside - helper needed. I've glued a lot of pennies on ones not adjustable to it's just that tough tighter when closed - any, side doors etc. If a switch/contact must make electrical contact pennies prior to about 1980 are solid copper! New ones are not! Hope it just adjustable,
