RE: [DML] Re: Idle Speed Motor / Cooling

What ?
I was as realistic as possible - I used the car's battery !!!!

12V not 12 amps !

amps is the current that will flow when a resistor is connected
between the two poles of a voltage source. 
Ohm's law: R = U / I -> I = U / R

U is fix (12.5V only battery and about 13.8V with engine running)
Resistor of the motor is also fix = 14 Ohm.

So the max current can be only 1A.

Sorry but this is basic knowledge that is described in any
basic electronics book on the first 2 or 3 pages.
