About Headlight Indicator Switch Stalks

The Saab 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 Saab 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 Saab headlight indicator switch stalk.

It’s rare that a Saab 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.

Saab trivia

  • There was lots of controversy over the Saab 93 in Sweden. Not so much the car itself, but the marketing for the vehicle clearly showed a young couple in bed together, but the woman wasn't wearing a wedding ring. Complaints poured in from shocked Swedes, and Saab hastily added a wedding ring.
  • When it comes to accessories, it's hard to beat the Toppola Camper, which turns a Saab 99 and Saab 900 into a sort of campervan. The Toppola comes with a cooker, double bed, and heater, and is attached to the Saab by removing the rear door.
  • The character of Jerry Seinfeld drove a classic Saab 900 convertible. It wasn't shown much onscreen, but viewers did see him sell it and buy a newer Saab.
  • The Saab concept car, the EV-1, was unveiled in 1985 and had a few cool features. One was the addition of solar cells to the roof (to power a ventilation fan) and self-repairing bumpers.
  • The Saab 92 was the first production car to put the petrol tank in between the rear wheels. They did this to improve driver safety, and it helped with balance too.
