    Default Bonnet open warning keeps going off even when shut

    Hi had my corsa e vxr for just under a year now and recently the bonnet open alarm keeps appearing on my dash. Even to the point where through the night the car alarm starts going off because it thinks the bonnet is open. I know that the bonnets definitely shut but still it keeps happening. Even does it when I’m driving. Anyone got any ideas?

    Just put a cable tie round it mate that's what I did. It's a pointless feature imo I think you can tell if your bonnet is open by looking at it haha. I was getting ****** off with it going off all the time when driving into the wind.

    Hahaha yeah just a pain. Had a look into more and found that the bracket that hold the sensor was mounted to low during the manufacture of the car. Vauxhall’s fix is to just bend to bracket to bring the sensor closer to the bonnet. Known fault to them and this was they fix they told dealerships to do

    I did have this issue recently everytime went to I turn on my ignition. I've just glued a plastic washer to the top of the bonnet sensor to shorten the amount of play in the compression of the spring when the bonnet is shut. Simply fixed and working as it should 😁
