About Wiper Switch Stalk
The wiper switch stalk is part of a range of electrical appliances that function to assist the driver of the car and to enhance the overall driving experience.
The Combo Vauxhall wiper switch stalk is generally mounted on a car's steering column with the primary function of switching on/operating the car's windscreen wipers. The wiper switch stalk will usually contain the controls to activate the windscreen washer too.
It is designed to allow the driver to easily operate the windscreen wipers without having to remove their hands from the steering wheel. The driver can decide at what speed the wipers move, usually from a choice of three speeds, depending on the weather conditions. The driver can operate the wipers by selecting the desired speed on the wiper switch stalk. This activates the wiper motor switch, which operates with a wiper motor relay. When the wiper motor switch is activated by the driver, this sends an direct electric current (provided by the car's battery) to the wiper motor. The wiper motor is what generates the force to power the wiper mechanism.
The ComboVauxhall wiper stalk switch is generally maintenance and problem free although like all components can be prone to wear and tear and accidental damage. This can include electrical faults due to burnt out switches of short circuits. Replacing this part with a new Combo Vauxhall wiper switch stalk will give you a part that is compatible with your vehicle.
- Alexander Wilson founded Vauxhall back in 1857 as a pump and marine engine manufacturer. It then moved onto building cranes before starting to finally make cars in 1903.
- It's the Corsa that is, by far, the most popular make produced by Vauxhall. Even as late as 2019, there were twice as many Corsa sales as there were of any other type of car.
- The Vauxhall Vectra was the last car they ever produced in Luton, and it went on to become one of their most poorly reviewed vehicles. Top Gear even put the '95 Vectra on their list of the worst cars of the last 20 years (Clarkson wouldn't even drive it!).
- Not only did Vauxhall produce the first sports car in the world, but it was also the first company to produce a car that could go 100mph!
- WWII got in the way of making cars, as Vauxhall started building the famous Churchill tank instead. It was designed and started rolling out of the factory in less than a year, and they made over 5,600 of them!
