Have had a quick check on the site but could find this info.

Has anyone tested the current that the windows use when activated?

I have been playing with a circuit for the windows but have not put the multimeter on to the lines yet.

THe currents depend on the condition of the window rubbers, as well as the condition of the motors, and pulleys...

Around 5Amps for Brand New, with no load.
7.5Amps seems to be roughly the average
10-12Amps if the winder is struggling.

There is a 40Amp Circuit Breaker in the EF/EL/AU models for the power windows. It takes a fair bit to blow that thing.

This document in the mods database seems to indicate its about 10 Amps per window:

Hope that helps.

I will have to get exact reading off my windows for another project later on but this info is what I was after for this circuit. Thanx's
