Automotive switches are one of the primary components in an automotive. Switches control the overall electrical equipments fitted in an automotive. Automotive switches are vital in controlling the automotive lighting and overall functioning of an automotive. Switches are also used in engine start and stop function and in different vehicle operations. Different categories of switches are used for various functioning of automotives which includes toggle switches, push and pull switches, keyed switches and marine grade switches among others. The demand of automotive switches are rising globally due to technological upgradation and increasing consumption expenditure. There are two types of automotive switches which includes water resistant switches and non-water resistant switches. Water resistant automotive switches are gaining importance especially in the two wheeler segment due to open nature of two wheeler vehicles which remain exposed to extreme atmospheric conditions. Durability of the switches, reliability and easy operation are the key factors on which the quality of the switches depends. Switches can be both manual and automatic. Manual switches required user interference and is used in various kinds of automotives such as passenger cars, light commercial vehicles (LCV) and heavy commercial vehicles (HCV). Automatic switches do not require user intervention and operates automatically according to the response send by the engine sensors. Automatic switches are used in premium segment passenger cars and other high end automotives.
