About Column Switchs

Column Switch

The column switch, which is also known as the steering column switch or steering column control module, is a rod that protrudes from the steering column of the vehicle. The column switch is used to control a variety of different operations in the car. Most vehicles have at least two column switches, although some have three or four.  They are positioned to permit easy access to the controls of the vehicle without losing contact with the steering wheel. They also encase the electrical wiring that operates the various operations that they control.

There is a range of uses for a vehicle’s common switches. Originally they were used to shift (or switch) gears on automatic cars. This then progressed to controlling the vehicle’s indicators and windscreen wipers. Most frequently, column switches are now used to control windscreen wipers, headlights, the headlight beam, the horn, the indicators and screen washers. However, more sophisticated versions of the column switch, in higher range vehicles, can control audio systems, cruise control systems and the vehicle’s onboard computer.

The most likely causes of malfunction of a column switch are loose wiring or a blown fuse. However, if the steering column switch itself fails or is damaged it can be easily replaced. All major motor parts suppliers can access the appropriate replacement part specific to the model of vehicle concerned.

Jaguar trivia

  • Before a Jaguar is painted, they are brushed with an ionized emu feather. That's because these feathers are very good at holding an electrostatic charge, and that means they are great at getting rid of any dust that might ruin the finished Jaguar look.
  • Talk about testing your car! Jaguars are put through a very rigorous climate test, where they are first tested in -40 degrees for twelve hours. Once that's done, the cars are then sprayed with water while standing in a 0-degree wind tunnel. That's why they cope so well with British weather.
  • The most expensive car in Jaguar's history is the XJ220. It cost a rather intimidating £413,000 in 1991 and is also one of the fastest cars they've ever built, capable of getting up to 217mph.
  • To show off just how light the F-Pace SUV was, Jaguar built a loop and the SUV not only tackled it but completed the loop on its first go. The feat earned Jaguar a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
  • Transporting a load of Jaguars isn't easy. When being loaded onto trains, every car is driven by a driver that isn't wearing a seatbelt. Those drivers aren't allowed to wear belts, and they even have to get rid of any metal eyelets on their shoes. This is all to prevent the possibility of scratches, and what's more, the drivers aren't even allowed to touch the outside of the cars!
