Power Draw Problem

Alright, this all started when i had replaced my water pump. when i press the window control for the passenger side window, i have a power draw that dims the interior lights and when the motor is running it bogs down the motor as well. The passenger side window only goes down and not up, i checked the window motor and it works fine, i don't know what it could be. Help would be awesome. Thanx

The water pump replacement is unrelated. You have a short circuit in the door wiring that should be located and fixed before you damage something or cause a fire.


A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

while you're in there clean the window tracks. that's probably causing your 'bog' issue.

clean it with brake cleaner and then lube it with white lithium grease in a spray can with a straw.
