Ive had a bad day with wiring on the boat and finally was able to make sense of the wiring the previous owner did.. And yes i did purchase the stuff today to wire up a new harness..
But my question is when i turn the key to the on poistionthe wire leading to the ballast resistor gets hot and leads to the + side of the coil..
But when that heats up the - side of the coil gets hot as well and my tach jumps to 8,000.
Is the - side supposed to get an electrical signal with just the key on???
