850 '96 850 Immobilizer Hood switch bypass?

After fixing the fuel issue on the '96, one other tedium that I have been dealing with since I got the car is a buggy hood switch on the immobilizer. About every 10th time I go to start the car, I'll get nothing on the turn of the key. Once I pop the hood latch, the car starts fine.

Digging up wiring diagrams, it looks like I should be able to just ground the wire and bypass the switch. This correct?

Mainly just annoying having to then hop out of the car to latch the hood after getting it started.
