I was testing my ignition coil to see if it is faulty using a multimeter. While testing for resistance, I set the dial at 20k reading and it measured step 1 and step 3 at 8.5 ohms (I'm guessing 85,000 ohms?) I turned the dial down to 200 and measured step 2 as 0.5 ohms (basically little to no resistance). Based on the description given in the picture, I think the ignition coil is faulty because step 1 should have been "out of limit" or infinite. I need someone to confirm if this is correct.
