After more thorough search in better light and removing grill etc. I found the bonnet sensor is underneath the RIGHT HAND bonnet latch (opposite side to battery for RH Drive models). there is a mini plug,with 2 contacts accessible from engine side without removing the grill, release plug latch to remove plug and short out the two pins of the plug then tape to secure. I can now lock the car without the horn blowing. As for replacing the actual switch, that will be another small job but when I return to the UK.

go to your local auto parts store and they should be able to hook up a code reader and clear that code off of your computer in your car

Check the bonnet pin (small switch that is pushed in and out by the bonnet opening and closing) which tells the computer if the bonnet is open or close, maybe its faulty or broken and the computer thinks the open is always open even though its closed.
