Window regulator current
Anyone measure the current draw on the regulators?
Replaced the clip on passenger side. Without glass installed current is about 5A up or down and increases up to 6A when it struggles.
With glass installed, current is about 6A on way up just for a little bit then increases to 10A and glass moves very slow (channels are lubed and glass is in all 3 channels). I pull it up with my hand and get about 7A. Same thing if I loosen the mid and back channels so they can move freely as the glass go ups.
The glass moves freely with no binding if removed from the middle lift channel and moved by hand.
I also bench tested and motor struggles if I hold the clip with my hand but I didn't measure current draw.
I know the motors are permanent magnet so they could just be old.
