I have a Viper 5906V connected to 3) 535T Power Window Modules. Front windows, Rear windows & Rear Slider
Vehicle: 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor, Push to Start
I noticed a larger than expected current drain on the system in standby mode. Upon measuring the current of each window module, I found they were drawing between 8.1mA - 8.4mA in standby mode. Even the rear slider unit with only 1 window. Not a huge amount but with 3 window modules and the Viper 5906V taking 32mA (is that normal?) and the truck taking 20mA at rest I am up to about 80mA on standby drain.
I would love to get that number down to 0 for the power window modules.
Has anyone tried to hook the power to the window modules up to ignition? My thoughts were to hook it up time delay relay so after the ignition is turned off the windows would remain active for 60 seconds. Then for the alarm to roll the windows up or down, the triggers would also have to activate that time delay relay so power would again resume for 60 seconds. I assume this would work and the 535T Window Modules would not need time to "boot up" if the power is turned on at the same time as the window up or down pulse is sent.
Any thoughts on the best way to stop this needless 25mA current drain?
On a side note, you don't want to know how much joy it was to get the window modules to enter programming mode. Had to wire in a temporary window control switch for the front driver window to bypass the factory window control temporaily. Then the rear slider had to be temporarily hooked up to 1 rear side window motor so there were 2 motors and buttons hooked up, just to enter programming mode. But that is all working now!

How small is your Raptor's battery and how many months do you go without driving it? 8mA is nothing, get 100 of those 535T's installed in your truck all at once and it's still under an amp of draw. If you want 0 (Zero) amps of additional draw then you need to install 0 (Zero) additions.

Would love to know if you get this to work.
Question, how did you wire the temporary switch up? I need to do this on an 07 chrysler 300 as i cant get into programming. I tried cutting the up wire from the switch,and joining it to the up input of the 535 but that didnt work.

pickup a 60 amp automotive relay, wire all window modules to that, and have the power killed with a delayed off circuit.
