hood latch alarm

My 2008 SLT Sierra took a hit on the right side frame horn. I have all the parts hung back on it, and the hook lock switch is good, but it reads it is open. I am guessing maybe a broken wire, anything else to look at?

I know the wire coming from the switch that signals "hood open" is a black wire with a pink stripe. I don't know if that helps at all. You might try pushing the switch closed and see if the signal on that wire changes. If it does, then there must be some disconnect from there up to the BCM.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it is an electrical problem
