# Question: How many amps does a windshield wiper motor draw?

Contents

Wiper motors are used by enthusiasts to power wheel chairs. You might do well to google “wiper motor current draw”. At any rate an average wiper draws 5 amps, rising to 10 to 12 amps under heavy/stall load.

## How many amps does a 12V wiper motor draw?

Neither draw more than 2.5 amps at 12 volts on full load. Mine normally takes about 2 amps and runs at around 8 volts.

## What is the torque of wiper motor?

## How much power does a windshield wiper use?

Safety is more important

Depending on the wiper speed with is set, windscreen wipers use between 80 and 150 watts.

## How many watts is a 12V wiper motor?

Wiper motors will probably not exceed 50 watts (4.2 amps at 12 volts).

## How many HP is a wiper motor?

Depending on the type of motor, they can draw anywhere from 5 to 10 amps. So converting that to HP using 13V as voltage and 65% efficiency, you get 0.11HP.

## How long does a wiper motor last?

The wiper motor on a car is supposed to last a lifetime. Typically, this will not be the case due to the conditions that this part of a car is exposed to. The heat and moisture that a wiper motor is exposed to on a daily basis will eventually lead to you having to get it replaced.

## How fast does a windscreen wiper motor turn?

Some wiper motors have variable speeds of up to 60 revolutions per minute (rpm). Other motors can support different windshield wiper blade angles from 40 degrees up to 110 degrees to maximize wipe performance.

## How much weight can a wiper motor lift?

I believe wiper motors generate about 12-13 ft/lbs of torque, so if you have a small spindle to use instead of a winch, a wiper motor may very well lift a 50lb load…slowly (Cap’n Jack is on to something with using a lighter door).
