  • Publication number: 20210023980
    Abstract: A vehicular light switch can change the mode of an exterior-illuminating light by rotating to different positions including an auto setting and a small setting. If the position of the vehicular light switch is rotated to the small setting, a momentary mechanism returns the position to the auto setting. If extravehicular brightness is less than a prescribed value and the position is rotated to the small setting whilst the vehicle is stationary, a first light controller turns off a low-beam light, and turns on the low-beam light if the vehicle runs afterwards. If extravehicular brightness is less than a prescribed value and the position is rotated to the small setting while the vehicle is running, a second light controller keeps the low-beam light turned on.

  • Publication number: 20210005408
    Abstract: Provided is a lever switch with an improved operation feeling. In the lever switch, a clicking surface of the click feeling generator abuts with an end portion of a switch moving body turning about a turn fulcrum in response to an operation of an operation lever, and generates a click feeling by causing a reaction force against the operation of the operation lever. A region of the clicking surface forms a shape of a curved face convex toward the turn fulcrum, where the region ranges between a first position where the reaction force starts to decrease from the peak and a second position where the reaction force becomes zero, in a stroke in which the switch moving body turns from a first angle to a second angle. The radius of curvature of the region is the maximum at a portion adjoining the first position in the region.

  • Patent number: 10800324
    Abstract: In an auto cancel mechanism for a turn signal switch device, a click stop mechanism includes a click feeling-generating body formed from an elastic material and supported on a switch case, and a click pin supported on a switch actuator and resiliently pressed against the click feeling-generating body. Since the click feeling-generating body is formed integrally with an elastic stopper part disposed between a guide pin and a front end of a guide groove, the guide pin collides with the elastic stopper part without colliding with the front end of the guide groove, and noise generated by the collision is reduced. Moreover, since the elastic stopper part is formed integrally by utilizing the click feeling-generating body, it is possible to suppress an increase in the number of components and the number of assembly steps.
