rpm drop

  1. Idle RPM drop when electrical accessories engaged

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hi all, Recently I have been noticing an RPM drop whenever I open a circuit on an electrical component. For instance, whenever my power windows engage, I feel a significant RPM drop. When I press the brake pedal just enough to engage the tail lights, I get an RPM drop. Randomly, when I am...
