Pedro, hmmm.. good question.  I've never noticed a hood ajar indicator on the dash.  I'll check it out later today.

 

EDIT: Just went through the manual and it makes no mention of a Hood Ajar indicator on my '11 Limited.

That is a good question. I think I'll try this and see what happens.

There is a Hood ajar switch, but no indicator. The switch is used for the perimeter alarm & remote start. Edges without remote start do not have the switch. AFAIK.

Upon researching the Manual :clapping:, an ajar hood condition will not allow the remote start function to work.  Also, if the remote lock/alarm function is invoked while the hood is ajar the vehicle will not lock itself nor arm the alarm and a double chirp will serve as notification of the non-lock/non alarmed condition. 

 

That's great, but if the hood is ajar will the car start by someone depressing the ignition button?  Dunno.  And the Manual doesn't appear to make any mention of that.  And, if one is simply driving down the road and the hood accidentally becomes ajar there apparently is no dash indicator for that.
