    DIC "Hood Open" warning message

    Hmm...after picking up my CTS from dealer svc dept, I drove 70 mph on expressway and later by chance discovered the hood was unlatched with only the secondary safety catch engaged.

    Dealer shop foreman says my ‘08 does not have the DIC "Hood Open" warning feature, even though it’s listed without qualification in the Owner’s Manual on page 3-60: "Hood Open" "This message displays when the hood is not closed completely. Make sure that the hood is closed completely."

    So anyone else without the DIC "Hood Open" warning message?

    I have a 2008 and I had that message pop up as well similar to your situation. I was passing a truck, scared the you know what out of me. I thought it was going to be like the scene from the movie Tommy Boy. That's one message I never want to see again...

    928S - thanks for sharing this issue with us. I'll certainly be checking my CTS to ensure the "Hood Open" switch and related logic (DIC message) are functioning.

    I believe your dealer shop foreman is wrong in saying your '08 doesn't have the DIC "Hood Open" warning feature. Any 2008+ CTS with the remote start feature (which I assume your vehicle has) requires "Hood Open" logic/feedback for the vehicle's control system. The Remote Start function is disabled/disallowed if the control system sees that the hood is open. It's a matter of safety - service folk certainly wouldn't want the engine to remote start while they're under the hood.

    You should have the Hood Open warning message. I would talk to a different dealer and see if they will be able to be more help to help you figure out why this message did not come up for you. Keep us updated.
