About Central Locking Switchs
The Jeep central locking switch is a two-way switch that is located in the door trim and allows the user to lock or unlock the door by pushing it. This switch can sometimes have an illustration on it with a closed padlock and an open padlock to show the user which way to push the switch to operate.
In a basic setup, the Jeep central locking switch sends power to the actuators to control the locking system. However, in a more complex setup, such as those where there are multiple ways to lock and unlock your vehicle, an on-board computer called a body controller will control the power. It also controls many of the functions of a vehicle, including the amount of time the interior lights stay on when the vehicle is started. It also gives you warnings that you’ve left your lights on or if you’ve left the keys in the ignition too.
If the Jeep central locking switch fails, it’s most likely due to a wiring or electrical fault in the central locking system. This could mean that the doors would be unable to be unlocked, or alternatively will not lock causing a security issue.
- There's a whole sport called Jeeping, and it's been running since 1953. It's a trek that usually takes place along the Rubicon Trail in the US, and 'Jeep Jamborees' are now so popular that Jeep even attends the events, often bringing new concept vehicles to show off.
- There were a lot of car firsts in the 1963 Jeep Wagoneer. Dubbed by Jeep as the first-ever luxury SUV, the Wagoneer came with independent front suspension (a first for a 4x4), as well as the first overhead-cam six-cylinder truck engine.
- Jeeps have been seen on the big screen a lot, especially in war films. However, it's not just war that is responsible for iconic Jeep designs in cinema. Jurassic Park used a '93 Jeep Wrangler Sahara for the vehicles used in the dino-park, and the most iconic scene showed the Jeep outrunning a T-Rex! There's even a car club called the Jurassic Park Motor Pool, where members have to own a Jeep that has been painted to look like it's come straight from the park.
- Although they were designed for the military, it didn't take long before Jeep released a version for civilians. The CJ-2A had several features that were lacking on the military versions, such as a tailgate, a side-mounted spare tire, and an external fuel cap.
- The original Jeep was designed in only two days! The prototype took 75 days to be built and then delivered to the US army that had commissioned the vehicle.
