To open the truck, when you stick the key in the hole, turn the key, i think it is clock wise, if it does not work in that position turn it the other way, till it stops then while holding it in that position push in to open, it will not open just by turning the key like in the door.

Key will not turn in the pushed in position or the out position- it slides right in & you can push it in but it does nothing. you cant turn it either way

Sorry it took so long had computer issues, yes under the hood drivers side in front of the fuse box there another little black cover piece, pop that up and that is your positive connection and just find a good ground and your in.
