Can't speak to your 300, but, assuming you're talking about remote-start, my Challenger works that way. There's a sensor on the hood latch that indicates that it's closed and the remote start won't work with the hood open.

Thanks! Appreciate the feedback. And yes, I meant Remote Start. Cheers,

Hi, I had the same issue with my '12 SRT8. I too thought it was the actual sensor. Testing determined it was something else. After a little poking around, it was determined the Body Control Module (BCM) had failed. It needs to be replaced and reprogrammed. If you have a trust worthy and knowledgeable mechanic, you can get it done for about $300-400. Dealer will charge more.

I'll have to dig up my wiring diagram. I'll post it here when I find it.

Good luck!
