Question about Mini Cooper
2003 Mini Cooper Hatchback: Hood Open/Hatch Open light in dash blinks at times and rings chime. Neither hood nor hatch is open or ajar. Sometimes goes weeks without light, then it blinks for days before stopping. I can't find either hood nor hatch sensor location.

take a closer look a the locking mechanism of the lock..if you see some wire or a single wire at the locking mechanism, then that is the door sensor of the trunk. it is mostly located at the latch where you close the trunk...
i hope i was able to help..
pls rate me..

a trick to try and get it to open is to (this sounds bad i'm aware) smack the hood of your car where it would latch (center at edge near bumper)...if for whatever reason it has slipped it can cause the part that hooks to be applying too much pressure preventing it from loosening. may or may not work...would be better if you have another person to pull while you smack smack on the hood so as it goes down, hopefully it frees it up enough for the person pulling it to unlatch it the rest of the way.

is the cable broken ...if so a pair of vise grips may be able to grab the cable to unlatch it ....if it is froze up from the hood area itself you can remove the grill and with the use of a drop-light or flashlight be able to see how to un- latch it with a mere screwdriver .........i hope this helps you
