Question(s) for anyone with a cobalt that is not disassembled yet...

If the ignition is on, and you start rolling up or down any power window, does the window stop moving while the engine is being stared?

If the ignition is on and the blower motor fan is running does is stop while the engine is being started?

Looking for a definitive answers, not a guess. Thank you!

Just walked out in my driveway to confirm. My car is an 08 ss/tc. The windows stop and so does the blower motor when you turn the ignition to the start position.

That’s pretty normal in any car. The starter needs every bit of amperage the battery can provide so it becomes the priority and any additional strain becomes a load on the wiring harness near the battery. The only thing it doesn’t typically apply to are lighting circuits.
