Land Rover LR2 "Hood open" problem

Anyone else having a problem with their LR2 displaying a "hood open" error?

Got my LR2 a week ago and love it, but noticed this morning it was giving me a "hood open" error... Tried closing it and shutting it a few times but no luck...

(The last time I'd opened the hood, prior to this error, may have been at the dealership the day I bought the car...)

Real downside of this is that the car will not lock (pushing the lock button just honks the horn b/c the hood is "open").

Dealer "fixed" it yesterday, but it recurred again last night...

Anyone else?

    sorry, never heard of it or seen it. 3000 miles and a few months of driving and I haven't had any of the issues listed here or on other forums. I doubt its just because I'm lucky. More likely its just pure statistics and the fact that Land Rover really got it right this time.

    Try this thing...

    put your key in, and click it over to position 2 three times in a row.

    It should reset the body control module and re-check the status of any onboard sensors.
