Re: hood will not open
NAPA will replace the wipers for you as for the hood not opening while you are pulling on the lever have someone else push down lightly on the hood and once you get it opened then before closing it again spray either WD-40 or some white lithum grease on the hood latch and lever mechanism and this should keep it from sticking next time

for the hood latch you may be able to reach up between the grill and condenser to where the latch is and pull on the cable lever to release it it' not easy but it might work for you,i had to do this to my 94,as for the electric problems there seem to be lose connections or a relay is bad,also for the battery problem the cables sometimes get battery acid going into the cable and you can't see it and it eats away at the cable inside the the insulation,you need to check all connections you can find and clean them and tighten them also have your altenator checked for proper output,auto zone should be able to check it for you for free,hope this helps.
I have a similar problem with my 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. The way I open the hood is to reach my hand between the radiator and the front of the car, and for me there is a bar running right up the middle if I follew that too the top, and on the drivers side of that bar should be the hood release, and I feel around till I feel the hood release cable, and then I push on the lever that the cable is attached too, most of the time this works. Hope this helps.
Behind the headlight, you should see the nylon bulb holder. Turn it counter clockwise, about a 1/4 turn, and it should come out. Pull the old bulb straight out, and replace it with the new one. Don't touch the glass part of the new bulb with bare fingers, or you'll be replacing it again. Use cotton gloves or a paper towel. Put the holder back in the headlight, turn it clockwise until it locks.
Passenger seats are usually manually operated from a latch or bar under the front of the seat. the seat back should have a lever between the door and edge of seat to make adjustment pull up on lever push back on seatback.
