Another Power Hood Problem
Any help out there? Power hood!
Cannot get the rear metal cover over the Spider hood comparment to release. (Powered or manual override)
The hood is currently up and when selected to power down, the hood rears screen section motors up ok, but the rear metal cover to the hood storage compartment does not release to open. Then get usual flashing red light on central console. Usually with a power hood problem, I then resort to manual operation, manual cycle/reset, etc. however:
The metal cover manual release switch (located behind seat) now does not release the latches for the cover, no click or anything. (The spigot release switch does work)
Tried looking in the corners of the boot for the lanyards/loop cords to pull and manually release the cover latches, but only found one.
I did change the battery a month or so back, so rechecked in the rear battery compartment that I had not disturbed the switch wiring. still no joy.
As unable to open hood rear storage compartment cannot get in to checkout the hood system. Any magic tricks to open the lid?
Almost seems no power getting to the latch solenoids from auto powering or manual switch. (Fuse?)
Handbook is very limited on hood electrics info.
Does anyone have an electrical hood circuit for a 1998 Spider 2L?
I cannot find where the appropriate hood fuses are located. Any help or suggestions in this area?
