2013 Camry SE "G" Key

+1 vote
This model does NOT come with the factory installed hood pin switch.  I purchased the OEM pin switch and installed it.  I am not sure if it will work though or if it needs some additional wiring.  There is a wiring harness sitting at the hood release to open the hood that was meant to be plugged into the OEM hood switch.  I connected it.  Still unsure if that is all that needs to be done.  Does anyone know if that will work?  If not, I assume I will have to run a wire and install a regular hood pin switch.  Another question is, on the immobilizer unit BLADE-AL, there is one wirte that says "without OEM hood status only" and a symbol for ground I think.  Would I use this wire to run to the pin switch if the one I installed (the OEM) one does not work?  What happens if I do nothing?  Will the RS still operate and just not turn off if I open the hood or does this wire HAVE to be connected?

This Question and Answer is for Fortin electronic related products. You want to contact the manufacturer of the Blade-AL if you have questions about how their product works.
