THE WELDING BETWEEN THE STRIKER WIRE AND THE REINFORCEMENT PLATE MAY HAVE REDUCED STRENGTH. THIS CONDITION COULD PREVENT THE HOOD FROM LATCHING. IF THE HOOD DOES NOT LATCH, THE VEHICLE SECURITY INDICATOR LIGHT WILL FLASH RAPIDLY, THE REMOTE START WILL NOT FUNCTION, AND THE HOOD OPEN MESSAGE WILL APPEAR IN THE DRIVER INFORMATION CENTER (DIC).
