Default 2007 Saturn Vue Hood Ajar Switch Issue

My 2007 Saturn Vue Green Line was partially flooded recently. The water never got above 2/3 of the tire height. It has been fully dried out and runs great (so far). All systems appear to be on-line, but the hood ajar switch is intermittently remaining with a check engine. (90% of the time it is showing that it is ajar) No codes are being thrown. Vehicle runs fine regardless.
I did a voltage check on the female connects. I noticed that one was only about 6 volts, but when I moved the wire in the socket, that I was using to connect the multimeter, the voltable jumped up to 12 volts. My questions:
1) Shouldn't that voltage be a constant 12 volts?
2) Can you describe how the voltage should be running through the connector during proper operation?
3) If I simply added a jumper across the connections wouldn't I be able to bypass the switch?
4) Is switch simply and the BCU logic based simply on opening and closing the 12v circuit, or is there a current resistence component the keeps me from jumping the switch.

The hood switch connector image attached is from a Chevy diagram which I believe is the same. It looks identical to the one I am testing and referencing above. Is this not correct?
