Hood Flap on 73 Coupe

C3 Tech/Performance - forums.corvetteforum.com
Hi All,

Need some help/advice on trying to diagnose why my hood flap is not opening when throttle is mashed.

My understanding is there is a switch on the gas pedal that is activated when the pedal is pushed so far down. A solinoid then is activated mounted on the underside of the hood that opens the hood flap.

Can I turn the key on, but not start the engine, and be able to activate the switch and solenoid? Just trying to figure out the easiest way to start on diagnosing where the issue may lie.
