Check battery terminals are shiny clean and tight . Have a load test done on the battery to check for dead cell.

    As I mentioned have the battery checked out . The car was running because the alternator was supplying the required power but when you switched it off then that is when you found out that the battery is no good.

My power locks do not work until I turn on the ignition of the truck (2004 Dodge Ram 2500). Also, I can't get power to my radio (even after turning on ignition).

I would be checking all the fuse at the panel. Turn the key off and check the ones that are supposed to on(like the door locks). Also they should have B+ power(12 volts or so). When panels go bad Voltage can be anywhere from 0 to 7 or 8 volts. Then turn the key on and check. All the fuses should have power, except the exterior lights. On bad panels you'll see low voltage on some fuses. and with key off, you'll see voltage on fuses that supposed to be off.

How do I get a arrow dead bolt off my front door. no visible screws or slots or openings anywhere. I want to install one I have a key for.

to take those off you have to have the key and turn it a quarter turn to reveal screws. if you don't have the key the lot has to be pick or bumped. or you can try drilling through the plate that turns to reveal the screws but be careful not to damage the screws.
