How much amps pulls when car is off?

Postby purplecelicaGt4 » Mon Nov 03, 2008 12:36 am

ok my car has electrical problems... I find that the window motor does not disengage after it powers up or down the window.. If its on it pulls 7 amps.. Even tho the car is off and the kee is out it still pulls the 7 amps//


With everything off including the window motor.. The car pulls.005 amps..
Is that a problem?? Will that pull the battery down over night??

I believe less than 1/2 an amp is normal.

5 MilliAmps is a very small draw.
It would take weeks for the battery to drain when off.

Anything over 100 mA could be something that should be switching off, but isn't.
