Testing Electronic Ignition
« on: July 02, 2010, 10:17:31 pm »
I need to test my car's Electronic Ignition this weekend, it won't start and has no spark.  I found a repair manual online, but it says to check the resistance of the various parts in "w" instead of ohms.  I guess I'm a little confused, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Derek

That's probably the old symbol for resistance.
Cryptocurrency has taught me to love math and at the same time be baffled by it.

Cryptocurrency lesson 0: Altcoins and Bitcoin are not the same thing.

I've never seen it used this way before, but that's a lower case omega. We're all used to the upper case "?" for ohms. The numbers they list for testing the coils make sense as ohms so I think you're good to go.

Hope that helps. :)
