About Headlight Indicator Switch Stalks
The Land Rover headlight indicator switch stalk is attached to the steering column. This stalk has levers on it that are used by the driver to operate the headlights or indicators of the vehicle and is wired in to the power supply unit of the vehicle using a multi-connector plug. The headlights and indicator are powered by a 12-volt electrical system known as a closed circuit loop system. This means that electricity is not flowing to the headlights or indicators when they are switched off. When the driver uses the levers on the Land Rover headlight indicator switch stalk the current is passed from the power supply to the headlights or indicators, opening the circuit loop. Once a vehicle has finished turning it’s common for the indicators to turn themselves off using a function that’s built in to the Land Rover headlight indicator switch stalk.
It’s rare that a Land Rover headlight indicator switch stalk will become damaged through wear and tear, but they can fail to self-cancel when indicating to turn. Other issues that may arise are the damage to wires which can cause burn outs or reliability issues. Faulty stalks should be replaced immediately and damaged wiring replaced.
Land Rover trivia
- According to the film, Judge Dredd (1995), Land Rover will be the last ever car manufacturer in the world. The car company had a heavy presence in the film, and you can still see some film versions of the car driving around the UK.
- One of the most unique vehicles ever was the floating SUV designed and built by Land Rover. Unfortunately, the Floating Ninety Defender led many drivers to believe that their own Land Rovers could also float, and many cars were driven into lakes as a result.
- Inspired by the Jeeps that had been used in WWII, the first Land Rover's steering wheel was in the middle of the dashboard. This was partly to counter the need to create left and right-hand drive models for different countries.
- Most cars get an immediate redesign after the prototype is designed. Not with the Range Rover, however! The 1966 design was considered perfect as it was, which never happens in the automotive industry. The Range Rover is considered a work of art, and one of them is even on display in the Louvre.
- Land Rover was the two-decade standout winner of the Camel Trophy, a gruelling off-road challenge that sees vehicles compete in Siberia, the Sahara, Australia, and other hostile terrains.
