P.S. Is there some special way to open the hood? I pulled the plastic lever and there was no "POP". I'd check the manual but I can't get in there either LOL !
The glove box latch has a tendency to break, you will most probably need a new one.
If the main display is out, could be the dsp is not giving any power to the main unit. check all connections.
When you pull the hood release, go to the front of the car, lift the hood slightly from above the headlights, a small latch should stick out from the drivers side kidney lift on that and the hood should open. If not, then the cable to the hood release is broken, another common problem.
