HOOD RELEASE WON'T WORK AND CAN'T OPEN HOOD

2000 Volvo S70

2000 Volvo S70 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 132000 miles

I just bought a 2000 volvo s70 a few weeks ago and started noticing a few things. First the abs, check engine lights and a few other lights come on and usually stay on. There is a flashing arrow also. Sometimes the speedometer stops working when the lights are on and It seems like the car gets stuck in gear. Next the car won't start sometimes and I had the altenator and battery checked which were fine. But now I have bigger problem, The release cable for the hood won't budge. A friend tried opening it through the grill but ended up breaking the rod between the 2 latches. Is there anyway to get my hood open before all my fluids dry up? The car cost me 2000 dollars and I don't have the money to get a new one just cause the hood won't open. Your response is greatly appriciated.
