I had so many hood problems over the years it would work 1 time in 20, lights flashed like yours on many occasions. I tried everything but gave up as using the manual buttons was easy enough. I still tried the auto switch every time just in case - but 1 in 20.
My alternator died so I had it replaced about 2 months ago
Once that was done the first time I tried the hood it worked (I always have the engine running when operating the hood). Since then it has worked EVERY time - seriously the weather has been so good that it has been up and down every day for the last two months without a hitch.
I am no mechanic but maybe, just maybe, it needs a full (rather than acceptable) output from the alternator to ensure satisfactory operation?
At the very least consider it may be an electrical rather than mechanical problem.
