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 is a 12V wiper motor?
Wiper motors will probably not exceed 50 watts (4.2 amps at 12 volts).
What is the power of wiper motor?
45 Car DC Wiper Motor, 14
|Power (Watts or HP)||14|
|Rated Voltage||13.5 V|
|Current No load||1.5 A|
|Speed (On load)||38 RPM|
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).
What is the torque of a windshield wiper motor?
Gearmotor for windshield wipers MRT62-43
|Gearmotor for windshield wipers MRT62 – 43||1 Speed||2 Speed|
|Max. Current (A)||12||12 / 15|
|No Load Speed (RPM)||30||30 / 45|

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.
Can wiper motors be repaired?
There’s no recourse but to replace these. Unfortunately, some of these parts have no part number from the dealer, requiring you to replace an entire expensive assembly—or improvise.
How long do wiper motors 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.
Can you reverse a windshield wiper motor?
Yes you can reverse the motor, they are usually series field motors, so you need to swap either the field windings or the brushes round, but the mechanics may get stuck. The output of the gear reduction operates a linkage that moves the wipers back and forth. …
How powerful is a windshield wiper motor?
At any rate an average wiper draws 5 amps, rising to 10 to 12 amps under heavy/stall load. Supposing the motor efficiency is 60% then the total power maxes out around 4 x 10 x 12 watts = 480 watts input and 0.6 x 480 watts output power .
