What circuit protection should I provide my wiper motor?

12 V DC motors draw about 5 amperes during normal use. Under heavy snow or wind loads, the draw will increase.

  • We recommend you use a 10 amp circuit breaker for one 12 V DC motor, or a 15 amp circuit breaker for a two motor system.

  • For 24 V DC motors, use a 5 amp breaker for one motor and a 7 amp breaker for two.
