    Guys i bought a car power window motor.I know its speed is not that fast.So the spare part seller told me that its speed can be increased by using relay.I asked him how,but he said he dont know the wiring.So anyone have idea how a relay can increase a motor speed and if so hows the wiring will be?

    He must think he knows something. A motor gets the same current through a switch as through relay contacts.

    Give us more information about the motor (wiring?). If you have the datasheet post it.

    The relay switches the motor to an additional power supply that has a higher voltage than the original one or connects an additional power supply in series with the original one.
