A headlight switch is an electrical component used in vehicles to control the headlights and other exterior lights. It is typically located on the dashboard or steering column of the vehicle for easy access by the driver. The headlight switch allows the driver to turn on or off the headlights, adjust their brightness, and switch between different lighting modes, such as low beam and high beam. Some headlight switches also have additional functions, such as controlling the fog lights, parking lights, or daytime running lights. The headlight switch plays a crucial role in ensuring visibility and safety while driving, especially during low-light conditions or at night.
