Turned off battery master switch and can't open the hood

Hi,
I had blown a fuse on the battery tender. To play it safe I turned off the battery master switch. I was struggling with getting off the battery tender and the car alarm went off even thought the battery master switch was off. The only way I could get it to stay off was by closing the hood. The hood as I found out won't open without power. What options do I have ?

--thanks

Figured it out. There is a manual release underneath the steering wheel. I stuck my hand under and found a ring attached to a wire which I gently tugged on and the hood opened. Everything is good now.

The alarm bypasses the battery master switch, and also operates on rechargeable batteries.
