Hood open switch

I have a 2019 envision essence. It does have the auto start stop disable switch but i want to not worry about hitting button at all. I read that if you start the vehicle with hood open it disables the start stop. I want to install a momentary pick relay in the hood open circuit to open contact when vehicle starts. Does anyone know what the wires are going to hood latch switch. It has three wires. I cant seem to locate a schematic for this. Thank you in advance.

Hi, I have a 2018 Premium and it does NOT have the shut off button (even so I really love the Buick). I purchased an ~$100 bypass module that fits by the hood latch but have yet to install it as the service manager at my Buick dealer (who does not try and sell me things or look for work) recommended I do not use it as he has recently had a similar product installed in an Enclave that messed up the main computer. In this instance it can void the warranty etc. He had the same with swaps on halogens for LED headlights. So, for me my simple solution is I just drive it in L and move the selector to 6. It shifts the same as in D and I don't have to think about the start/stop and all, seamless as it is, because start/stop does not engage in L.
