There's a possibility that the problem is the immobilizer unit/Central locking system box under the driver's seat. Check if the padding under the carpet is wet. I like to check by sliding the seat forward and pulling the carpet up a little bit at the rear.

Can you push the latch fully closed - poking it with a screwdriver (not closing the hood). Then unlatch it using the normal button and try closing the hood.\

Other than fuse and relay, I have seen two types of failure for the spoiler. One is a failed motor, the other is broken linkage between the motor and the parts that raise. Both ways are a fairly simple fix, replacing the whole spoiler mechanism.
