Things like the turn signal stalk, headlight switch, power window switch or dimmer switch on your vehicle are pretty easy to take for granted -- but you're likely to use them up to 20,000 times in a year, depending on how many miles you drive. If you flip a switch and don't get any results, check the fuse panel first - and if that's not the problem, it might be time to go ahead and replace that switch to keep your car legal to drive.
Think about how many times you use your wipers, turn signals and dimmer switch in the course of a year. A couple of thousand times? Maybe 5,000? Studies show that it's not unusual for a typical driver to use that multi-function switch 15,000-20,000 times a year. It's not surprising, then, that the contacts in the switch are likely to wear out and oxidize over time.
On some vehicles, the multi-function switch can be difficult to replace ... on others, not so much.
