Hood Latch Replacement

When replacing the hood latch (Fig. 16) on 2016-2018 Camaros, the service replacement hood latch will require the use of a new connector. The new service latch has a three-wire connector while the original latch on 2016-2018 models only has a two-wire connector.

Obtain the new connector from the GM Electronic Parts Catalog. Remove the yellow wire and terminal from the new connector. It is also acceptable to cut the wire 1-2 inches from the connector and tape off the end of the wire.

The schematic in the Service Information shows a purple wire on the hood latch (Fig. 17); on the new connector this is a red wire. Connect the red wire on the connector to the BN/GN wire in the vehicle harness. Connect the black wire on the connector to the black wire on the vehicle harness.
