nothing lights up, can't get in, have no idea what to do
Hello I'm Chris
I have bad news. From this point you will have to have a door key made using your vin# XXXXX a dealer or locksmith can get the key code or you will have to have the door slim jimmed by a locksmith to get the door open. There is no other way to gt in the vehicle in tha state it in now other than break glass which is not a viable option.
can I pop the hood from the outside and boost the battery?
You can not pop the hood without causing any damage. If you think getting some power to the vehicle will allow the door pad to work then you can jack up the drivers front and support it and connect a jumper cable safely to the large red wire on the starter without touching any other wires and ground to the chassis and this will power the battery.
