[DML] Re: holding buttons - effect on electrical system

When the window reaches the end of its travel, it stops.... and so does the  
motor.  By holding down the power button you are supplying power to a  
"stalled" or stopped motor which causes it to "draw" much more current than it  does 
when it's moving. (Has to do with back EMF.)  So you are using a lot  more 
current which puts a strain on the electrical system.  The large  current causes 
a drop in the system voltage and thus the dimming of the  lights.

Why is it that when you continue to  hold your electric window buttons 
after the windows are in position, the  volts drops sharply and the 
headlights get dim. This isn't just on DMCs  but all cars.
