Consequence of non-compliance: If the secondary latch is not properly engaged and the primary hood latch was also not engaged, the hood latch was also not engaged, the hood could open unexpectedly. If this were to occur while the vehicle is in motion, the hood can contact the windshield reducing the vision of the driver and increasing the risk of a vehicle accident.
