help identifying under-hood parts

I borrowed this picture from dworthy for this question (I hope you don't mind me using it).



What is that plastic button and that connector besides it?



Also, I was jump starting the car and mistakened that plastic button for ground; nothing bad seemed to have happened to my car except that the jump start did not work at all. Do you guys think I might have damaged any components using it as a ground post during a jump start?





Thank you so much; I'm still new to this car.

plastic button is the hood closing sensor.
i doubt you messed anything up.

if your car is drivable and no warning light, you should be fine.

use www.realoem.com for more details.
