About Wiper Switch Stalks
The wiper switch stalk is part of a range of electrical appliances that function to assist the driver of the car and to enhance the overall driving experience.
The BMW wiper switch stalk is generally mounted on a car's steering column with the primary function of switching on/operating the car's windscreen wipers. The wiper switch stalk will usually contain the controls to activate the windscreen washer too.
It is designed to allow the driver to easily operate the windscreen wipers without having to remove their hands from the steering wheel. The driver can decide at what speed the wipers move, usually from a choice of three speeds, depending on the weather conditions. The driver can operate the wipers by selecting the desired speed on the wiper switch stalk. This activates the wiper motor switch, which operates with a wiper motor relay. When the wiper motor switch is activated by the driver, this sends an direct electric current (provided by the car's battery) to the wiper motor. The wiper motor is what generates the force to power the wiper mechanism.
The BMW wiper stalk switch is generally maintenance and problem free although like all components can be prone to wear and tear and accidental damage. This can include electrical faults due to burnt out switches of short circuits. Replacing this part with a new BMW wiper switch stalk will give you a part that is compatible with your vehicle.
- Did you know that BMW built a Lamborghini? The two popular companies decided to make a race car together, but Lamborghini pulled out during the manufacturing process. BMW carried on, and the final result was the original BMW M1 supercar.
- That distinctive BMW car engine sound that new owners fall in love with might not be real. The BMW M5 has such a quiet engine that they had to install fake engine noises to keep drivers happy!
- Think you know what BMW is an acronym of? If you answered Broke My Wallet, you’re definitely wrong. It really stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke (which is Bavarian Motor Works in English).
- One of the reasons older BMWs keep their value is because it's easy to get spare parts for even the oldest models. That's because BMW has carried on making car parts, even for cars that were built in WWII.
- The BMW M1 has a classic look, so it's no surprise that its designer also came up with some other amazing car designs. Giorgetto Giugiaro is also responsible for the DeLorean, the Beretta U22 Neos handgun, and the Nikon D4 camera! Although, he also designed the Yugo, commonly called the worst car that's ever been made.
