This is Normal Right?

Just a small quirk I notcied on a recent long drive on a dark interstate 95. When My windows are up and closed, if I press the up button on the power window button, the headlights will noticably dim a bit. I assume since the motor for the window is trying to push the window up, and the window is already up, it's drawing lots of extra juice.

BTW, I don't do this ever because I know the motor will burn out. But I pressed the button during this long drive to make sure my window was closed and I could notice the drain in power due to the headlights dimming. I do not have the fan control module problem.

So this is most likley normal right?

Replying to Topic 'This is Normal Right?'

Very normal as the you are right the window motor is straining to push the window up and meeting your window frame. Every car I have ever owned with power windows has done this as I recall. The motors that run your power windows have allot of torque and really put a strain on the whole electrical system.
