I just went through this same scenario last weekend. Pull hard on the handle toward the drivers side but at about a 45 degree angle fwd. Don't pull too hard as you will pull out the little attach point guide (Like I did). Yes, you have to push the cable back. Remove the pos lead for charging so the alarm won't mess with you. Use the remote to reset when you reattach the battery lead after fully charged.
