hood open switch problems

I have an 08 Sierra that had front end damage. I cannot find where there was any damage to the harness for the hood switch, which disables the remote start if it reads open. Of course, winter is coming in PA and I would like to get it figured out. THere are two circuits in the switch, which is new, one circut is normally open and the other normally closed. I cannot get the 12V at the switch across either circuit or to ground. I am looking for which fuse feeds this right now, since I cannot find a pinched wire and the ground wire reads low resistance to ground. Anyone have any intel?

Is the switch the correct one for your truck? Are you getting 12 volt from the harness under any condition? I think you may need to determine more about how this system works to know what to check at the switch.
