Hello. The car in question is a 2019 Kia Optima S.
My Goal is to find (or have made) a cover for a set of push buttons the car has for the trunk, the gas lid, etc. I wanted to hide those buttons with a cover and to make it so it snaps shut and cant be manipulated say (with a stick or branch thru a cracked open window) so they cant get into my car through the trunk. the switches are all huddled together and make a rectangular box shape...something in my head yells paranoia with those buttons being so visible and so easy to push.
Thx for any and all information. I know It's a crazy long shot and my paranoia is just getting the best of me but it seems to be such a dumb oversight for push buttons if you ask me.

Headlights are a vital component of a vehicle. They help you see the road at night so you can protect yourself and your car from obstacles and pedestrians.
Imagine if the headlights malfunction, not only are you in danger of getting into an accident but you are likely to hit somebody and cause injuries. Therefore, your vehicle’s headlamps must be in perfect condition. Go for headlights checkup and repair every once in a while.
Though you should be clear on how to spot defective headlights and buy the genuine product in the first place, if your high beam and low beam headlights do not work for some reason, here are some ways to find out how to fix them.
Low Beam Headlights Don’t Work - How to Fix
If your car’s low beam headlights are not working, the first thing you need to do is check the bulb inside the headlamp.
Light bulbs have a limited lifespan, after which they can break any time. Normally, a bulb lasts 5 to 6 years depending on the time you spend driving at night. Those of you who do a lot of nighttime driving will burn a bulb quicker.
Fix: Repairing a headlight bulb is not possible, at least not without the proper tools and equipment. A bulb has a tungsten filament inside which burns out due to use. Unless you are qualified to replace a tungsten filament, do not think about a repair.
A replacement bulb is the best option. Buy a new bulb, twist the connector behind the headlight housing, remove the worn-out bulb, and add the new one. There are certainly many benefits for you to replace headlights.
If you’re struggled with choosing high performance headlights, OEDRO LED headlights are always the right choice for you. You can also read OEDRO’s previous blog to learn how to tell high performance led headlights.
2. Connecting system
A car’s low beam headlights may not work if they are not connected to the system correctly. The bulb inside the headlight and the headlight housing experience a lot of vibration when you drive your car. As a result, either the bulb gets loose or the connector gets loose.
Fix: To fix a loose bulb or connector, pop open the hood and reach behind the headlight. You will feel a connector which needs to be twisted. Twist the connector and take out the bulb. Blow away all the dust from the bulb and the connector and attach them back again. You have solved your problem!
The car headlights receive their power through the safety of a fuse. When the fuse blows, it does not allow electricity to pass to the bulb, therefore, the low beam headlight will not work.
Fix: The headlight fuse is located inside the fuse box in your engine bay. Usually, the fuse box is found on the top right side of the engine bay. When you open it, you find a number of fuses and relays inside. It could be confusing to find the right fuse, but fortunately, you get a map which can lead you to the right fuse. Simply remove that fuse and replace it with a new one.
