What used to be manually operated automobile windows has already evolved into something more convenient and more enjoyable way of opening or closing your car's windows — it was called the power window. Modern automobiles nowadays are equipped with such power windows for comfort and convenience purposes. They old way of lowering or raising the window glass by way of rotating or turning the lever was already replaced by just pushing a button. The manually operated windows require a lot more effort in order to rotate the lever as compared to just using one finger to push a button for the power windows.
The component where you find the buttons and other controls of the power window is called the switch. A window switch like the Land Rover window switch is the component used to control the opening and closing of power windows. Usually, it is on the driver's side where you find the main window switch. It means that the driver can actually control his passengers' windows. Although each window has its own switch, power windows are designed to give the driver the convenience of opening and closing all the windows without the need to activate each window switch. By this, even if the driver is alone, he can have all the windows opened or closed whenever he wishes to without leaving his seat.
Commonly, there are three kinds of window switches available in the market or being used by car manufacturers — the toggle switch, rocker switch and the lever switch. A toggle switch is one that works by flipping a small lever either up and down or from side to side. This switch is the most common type of switch that you will find on automobiles having power windows. However, for safety purposes, using a lever switch would be a good idea. The moment you flip or push this kind of switch, it will neither automatically allow the window glass to be opened all the way down nor be closed all the way up. You need to continuously exert effort until the window glass has been opened or closed in the desired height. Such kind of switch is perfect for drivers who are fond of bringing along with them their kids for a ride.
The rocker switch on the other hand is the exact opposite of the lever switch. The moment you activated it with just a single push, the window glass will move either all the way up or all the way down. Such is very dangerous especially when you have kids in the car as they can accidentally open the windows without your knowledge and allowing them to put their heads or hands outside causing some unwanted incidents. Whether your vehicle is equipped with a toggle window switch, rocker window switch or lever window switch, one thing is for sure, you need to replace it once it got stuck or got totally busted.
