About Column Switch

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.

Renault trivia

  • If you’ve seen a six-wheeled Renault 5 in the UK, you might not have imagined it. Not many were made, and they are all in the hands of private collectors, one of which is rumoured to be a British car aficionado.
  • Renault has more models of electric cars than any other manufacturer, with the Twizy, Kangoo, and Fluence their most popular electric-powered vehicles.
  • Louis Renault was sure that films were going to be big, so he agreed to let the Lumiere brothers use the Renault Type A in one of their first films. Now, Renault cars are seen in hundreds of films and TV shows every year.
  • The Royal family have always enjoyed a Renault, but the first royal sale was in 1905 when King Edward VII bagged himself a Landaulette. Our current monarch didn’t pay for one; however, they did receive a Renault Dauphine as a gift in 1957.
  • The Renault 8 was the first production car to come with a four-wheel disc brake system, and in 1980 the company filed a patent for a ‘braking distribution device for total adherence’.
