Remote start button makes car blink at me and that's it.

Maybe its flirting, maybe not... but I'd like the remote start to work. I pulled codes and it seems to be tied to the hood latch switch. Is there a way to bypass this or am I stuck having to replace the hood latch assy?

I've only had my g6 for a cpl months so I don't have much info to offer but that Ive read that the remote start wont work while the check engine light is on. Also mines did the same thing until the light went off. Works fine now

I had replaced the EVAP vent solenoid and cleared the codes to take care of the CEL, but it still wasn't working. I then pulled every code beyond CEL codes and discovered the problem was the hood latch switch. I jumped the brown and black wires and it worked but didn't fire up (warm start issue where I have to goose the gas pedal to get it to fire and go), so now I'm pulling the throttle body and MAF sensor assy to clean them.
