Hi, when I got my car there are two cables haning down on the floor on the drivers side floor coming from the dash area, when you pull on either one the front hood pops. It seems strange to me that either one will open the hood and why would you need two? So where is the latch that is supposed to be connected to that located? Also, where is the latch button to open the rear lid?
Pictures would be great

front hood cables: the second is a backup.

As for the rear, the button will be on the dash, right side. If you don't have one, then it was not installed on your car (it was optional or came with various packages). You can install the equipment to add decklid release, or add keyless (which I did).

Can you show me a picture of the latch and where it is too on the interior of the car? Also, rear trunk opener, there is a relay on the firewall behind the drivers seat in the engine bay and wires going up in the rear deck lid and it looks like there is 3 wires going to what looks like a relay or something on the lock part.

Sorry, I don't have the car handy for such photos... but I bet others do. Also, the latch release mounts under the driver's side vent, on the bottom of the dash. you will see mounting holes there.
