Default Voltage

I have a question:


What should be the voltage on the coils when the key is on? I think I have a bad ignition switch.


Thanks in advance.

Default Re: Voltage

When the switch is turned to battery, 6 or 12 depending on what your battery is. But remember the coils only buzz when the timer roller is making contact with a segment in the timer.
