Secondary Driving Controls

Secondary Driving Controls are those controls not related to the motion of the vehicle. (i.e. ignition, gear selection, parking brake, lights, windshield wipers, etc. All of these controls must be relocated to an accessible location for the disabled driver.

Automotive Innovations clients often have a reduced ability to operate items such as directionals, horn, high beams, and many other secondary controls. For over 20 years, we have been the leader in developing custom mobility solutions so our clients can safely drive their modified vehicle. Our modifications include simple extensions, flipper switches, stepping relays, timers, and many other products that allow any of the vehicles controls to be modified. Often, we set up full touch pads so that all of the functions can be operated from a single point switch interface that can be moved closer to the driver. Recent advances in technology have created solutions for many of these vital functions, thereby allowing more and more people to experience the independence of driving their own modified vehicle.

Here are the options for Secondary Driving Controls that we offer:

Ignition Starting | Lights Turn Signals/Hazards | Horn/Dimmer | Wipers | Cruise On/Set | Windows Locks | Electric Park Brake | Electric Shift | Left and Right Power Mirror Control
